Alec Christopher Kessler (January 13, 1967 – October 13, 2007) was an American college basketball player for the University of Georgia Bulldogs and later, as a professional, for the Miami Heat in the NBA and in the Italian league for Olimpia Stefanel Milano. After his basketball career ended, he became an orthopedic surgeon.
Kessler played collegiately for the University of Georgia Bulldogs where he was a three-time academic all-American first-team selection as well as the national academic all-American of the year in 1989 and 1990. Kessler left Georgia as the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,788 points (until the record was surpassed by Litterial Green).
The 6' 11" power forward/center was selected 12th in the 1990 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets, but his draft rights were immediately traded to the Miami Heat in exchange for the draft rights to Dave Jamerson and Carl Herrera.
In his NBA career, he was a member of the Miami Heat for 210 games spanning four seasons until being waived on November 2, 1994 (prior to the start of the 1994-95 season). He was played mostly as a backup center and held career averages of 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. He was still receiving $300,000 per annum by the Heat organisation ten years after being cut.
Kessler died after suffering a heart attack during an informal basketball game in Gulf Breeze, Florida on October 13, 2007. He was survived by his wife, Rhea, and two sons, Nicholas and Christopher.
Alec Kessler's brother, Chad, also played for the Georgia Bulldogs basketball team, and Chad's son, Houston Kessler (Alec's nephew), signed a letter of intent to play for the Bulldogs in the 2012–13 season.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
