Theo attended Demopolis High School, where he started playing basketball. After matriculation, he enrolled at the University of Wyoming, where he continued his basketball career. He became known for his ability to block shots, and finished his career with the record of blocked shots as a Cowboy, with 425, which is still active.
In 1995, he declared for the NBA Draft and was selected as the 18th overall pick by the Detroit Pistons, the start of building his net worth. In his rookie season, Theo played in 75 games, but started only two of them, and had 4.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocked shots per game in 17.4 minutes that he played on average. The following season, his playing time increased; he started 38 games which resulted in an increase in his game numbers, but was still far away from even a mediocre performance.
In the following season, he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers after 24 games in Detroit, and played in 58 games for his new team, 55 of which were starts, and averaged double digits in points score, and also he had 3.5 blocked shots per game. He stayed at Philadelphia until the 2000-2001 season, and helped in a great way the 76ers to reach the NBA finals. However, he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks, but then an injury prevented him from continuing with his great form. Nevertheless, in the 2002-2003 season he played in 81 games for the Hawks, all starts, and averaged 8.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks per game. Having continued to be one of the most praised defenders, Theo led the league in blocked shots in 2003-2004 season, but midway through the season he was traded to the Portland Trailblazers, but that didn’t put a stop to his dominance on the paint, as he averaged 4.4 blocks in the 32 games he played for the Trailblazers. As a result, he was selected into the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. This was also his best season in his NBA career.
From the 2004-2005 season his numbers began to decline, while he also had constant problems with injuries. As a result he didn’t play more than 50 games in a season, and didn’t spend more than one year in a team. Until the end of his career, he played for the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, again the Pistons and the 76ers, then the San Antonio Spurs, Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets, and Los Angeles Lakers.
Even before retirement, Theo launched his business career when in 2004 he bought the WBA Rome Gladiators team, a basketball franchise currently based in Rome, Georgia.
Regarding his personal life, Theo has been married to Kristina Ratliff since 1998; the couple has six children together.
