Wiki

Cedric Z. Ceballos (born August 2, 1969 in Maui, Hawaii) is an American professional basketball player formerly of the NBA, and currently with the ABA's Maywood Buzz. As a small forward, he played most notably for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, later finishing his NBA career with the Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons and Miami Heat.

Ceballos attended college at Ventura College and later Cal State Fullerton.

His career highlights include leading the NBA in field goal percentage (57.6) in 1992-93 with the Suns, who reached the NBA finals that year. He also lead the Lakers in scoring in 1994-95 with a 21.7 average and made the All-Star team, and in 1995-96 again led the Lakers with a 21.2 average, notching the Lakers' first 50-point game in over 20 years in 1995, and won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest with a blindfolded dunk in 1992.

In 2002 Ceballos signed with Israeli team Hapoel Tel Aviv, but was waived after a couple of games. Shortly after, he moved to Russia and was signed by BC Lokomotiv Mineralnye Vody. He also played for the San Miguel Beermen in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). In late 2004 he signed with the Los Angeles Stars from the ABA. Ceballos is currently employed by the Phoenix Suns as their in-arena emcee and host of a weekly webcast, "Nothin' but Net." He also hosted a morning music program for Phoenix, Arizona rhythm & blues radio station MEGA 104.3 FM. He has two children with Sherlynn Cook. In March 2007 the Phoenix Flame of the IBL announced the signing of Ceballos[1] for its inaugural season in the league, but he quickly moved behind the lines as an assistant coach the next month.[2]

Ceballos also worked on the album titled B-Ball's Best Kept Secret, a 1994 record featuring tracks of an array of early 1990s NBA players. He is featured on multiple tracks performing with hip-hop star Warren G on "Flow On" and later on the track "Ya Don't Stop" also featuring fellow NBA All-Star Dana Barros and rappers Grand Puba, Sadat X, AG and Diamond D.
