Any time Erick Dampier is mentioned as someone who can help your team, you know your team isn't in a good situation. However, the Boston Celtics don't have many options at this point. The only legitimate center on their roster is Jermaine O'Neal and he's not the same player he used to be. Show More Summary
In general, I don't give Erick Dampier much thought, and I'm guessing neither do you. He is far from an NBA superstar, and if he's at all memorable, it's only for having once been memorably overpaid. More »

Erick Dampier may just be the Miami Heat's lucky charm. An imposing 6-foot-11, 265 pound lucky charm that is. After losing his first game playing as a member of the Heat to his former team the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 27, Dampier hasn't experienced another loss since. Show More Summary
