About Constantin Popa Constantin Popa (born February 18, 1971 in Romania) is a 2.22 m (7' 3½") retired Romanian-Israeli professional basketball player. Popa played for Dinamo Bucureşti in his native Romania before going overseas to play college basketball in the United States for the University of Miami. He was the tallest player to ever wear a Hurricanes' uniform, and finished as Miami's all-time leader in blocked shots (263), 3rd in starts (83), 5th in minutes played (2,624), tied for 8th in steals (89), 9th in rebounds (701), and 14th in scoring (1,132). He was a two-time Third Team AII-Big East selection. In large part on the strength of a highly effective hook shot, he was selected by the L.A. Clippers with the 53rd pick in the 1995 NBA Draft. In the same year he was selected by the Miami Tropics of the USBL as a first round territorial selection (4th pick overall). He never ended up playing a game in either league, although he did play for the Florida Beachdogs of the American CBA, where he developed somewhat of a cult fan following. He also played in France with Pau-Orthez and with Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem of Israel. Although not Jewish, he obtained Israeli citizenship as his wife is Jewish.
