About Larry Johnson

A member of the NCAA Men's Basketball champion UNLV Runnin' Rebels in 1990, winner of the U.S. Basketball Writers' Association Oscar Robertson Trophy and the John R. Wooden Award and Naismith Award as college basketball player of the year in 1991, Larry Johnson brought his prodigious talents to the NBA as the first overall pick in the NBA draft of 1991. He won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award the following year, and was a two-time NBA All Star. Some of his seemingly limitless promise was sapped by chronic back problems before he announced his retirement from professional basketball in 2001, putting an end to a distinguished 10-year career in the NBA, but since then, Larry Johnson has devoted the same intensity and energy that he brought to the basketball court to his endeavors in the business arena.

Currently, Larry Johnson is now the Vice President in charge of the Larry Johnson Beverage Division of OG Nation, Inc. Relying on his extensive athletic background and drawing upon his work ethic that was the envy of his basketball peers and drew the admiration of his coaches, this father of four and founder of his own beverage company is now working hard to see his HydroPower line of enhanced flavored waters take charge in the flavored water market.
