Andris Biedriņš, the towering 19-year-old from Latvia who was last year’s first round draft pick by the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association, is described as “baby-faced” in an April 13 article in the San Jose Mercury News.
Biedriņš plays center for the California-based team.
Biedriņš’ initial three-year contract is worth USD 4.6 million, according to the National Basketball Players Association’s rookie pay scale. No wonder he’s been able to afford a Porsche and a 23rd floor apartment in Oakland, Calif.
