The 2010 Duke basketball team relied on its defense -- especially during team meals.
That's when Brian Zoubek, the 7-1, 260-pounder, would eye his teammates' desserts and aggressively covet another helping. If you were sitting next to him, you only had one option.
"Protect your own dessert with your life," former Duke guard Jon Scheyer said. "He had the biggest sweet tooth."
Zoubek decided to fill his craving after a back injury suffered during Nets training camp in the fall of 2010 effectively ended the center's basketball career.
He became the world's tallest pastry shop owner.
