Why I Chose Fred
Fred Hoiberg is the son of an Iowa State sociology professor (his father) and elementary teacher (mom), and received a degree in finance from ISU in 1995. When growing up in Ames he lived within walking distance from the ISU basketball arena, Hilton Coliseum. Before he became famous he was the quarterback for the Ames High school football team.
Fred played for 3 different teams like I said earlier. the three teams were the Bulls, the Timberwolves, and the Pacers. His average 3 point shooting was .4043, which is 40.43%.he only played for the Minnesota Timberwolves for the last 2 years of his career. He stopped his career because he had just had a successful surgery on his heart because he had an enlarged aortic root, so he did not play during the 2005-2006 season
