Dat Mongoste is a male mongoose guard currently playing for the Dakota Bikers.
Born into a powerful political family, Dat's father was the Zimbabwean diplomat to the United States, offering the young mongoose both a comfortable life and one full of travel back and forth across the Atlantic. It was through these trips that he first became exposed to basketball, which he learned was a good sport to know as his father took him on trips to different cities in the States. Seeing the diplomatic advantage of having a son talented in an American sport, Dat's father encouraged him to keep learning and bought him private coaches and trainers to help his son develop. By the time Dat was sent to the States for college, he was already an exceptionally well trained talent, familiar with all the play books and fundamentals of the game. In fact, he was so pro-ready, he left college early to submit his name into the 1997 FBA Draft.
Long-time veteran, excellent deep shooter with an aggressive, fast-paced style. Known for being highly mobile with outstanding offensive awareness and strong passing ability. Considered one of the best point guards in the FBA. Won a ring with the 2008-2009 Huntsville Mayors. Played with them until the 2010 off-season when his contract ended and he signed a new agreement with the Dakota Bikers, fresh off their championship season.
Traded to free agent
In a risky gamble during the 2012-2013 off season, Dakota traded Dat Mongoste and Aaron Murray to the Struggling Kansas City Clefs for an early draft pick. Dat was named captain of what fans called, "the worst team in the FBA". Despite his best efforts, the team came dead last in the 2012-2013 season, and with the Clefs' last place ranking came the end of Dat's contract. The mongoose seriously considered retiring if he didn't get a contract offer.
One more go around
During the 2013 off season, Dat got an offer from the newly formed Texas Lone Stars. Though it wasn't as fat as he liked, Dat agreed with the Lone Stars' General Manager Hector Louis that he had a few more seasons of play left before hanging up his jersey. He accepted and began practicing for yet another big season.
