NBA Draft Grades: Anthony Bennett Chosen First, Nerlens Noel Slides And Trades Galore
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The NBA Draft has come and gone ... just not necessarily the way we had envisioned it taking place. It was a shock to many that Anthony Bennett was drawn first by Cleveland -- the first-Canadian born player ever to be taken in that slot. While Bennett is certainly an intriguing prospect, the selection was the byproduct of a draft sorely lacking star power. Ironically, Thursday's pick was David Stern's last draft as commissioner. Stern -- who will step down Feb. 1 after three decades on the job -- has built this league up with electric stars, starting with Michael Jordan in the mid-80s and ending with LeBron James today. Nerlens Noel, whom many had tabbed as the likely top selection, fell to the sixth pick, while Boston Celtics' stalwarts Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were dealt to Brooklyn. Making matters even stranger was the fact that rising star Jrue Holiday was traded from Philadelphia to New Orleans and will now team up with Anthony Davis on that team. Still, this part ...

Georgia Tech coach has restriction against transfers to UGA but …
ajc - almost 5 years
Georgia Tech basketball coach Brian Gregory has a policy that restricts his players from transferring to another ACC school and one out-of-conference opponent … archrival UGA. However, Gregory also told the AJC that if one of his players really wanted to transfer any school, including UGA, ultimately he “wouldn’t fight it.” Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll. Additionally, Gregory spoke out against fellow coaches putting severe restrictions on transfer players – which has quickly become a controversial and hotly-debated topic in college athletics. You can read more about it here. Georgia Tech has two players transferring from the program, guard Glen Rice Jr. and center Nate Hicks. Both will have to sit out one year if they transfer to another D1 school, or two years if they stay within conference due to the ACC’s strict transfer policy. “Yes, that’s kind of our blanket policy,” Gregory told …

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2003
    Following the 2003 season he would be traded to the Utah Jazz, but would then sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.
    More Details Hide Details A knee injury (partially torn tendon) ultimately derailed and eventually brought Rice's career to an end. In his final season with the Clippers he became the 48th player in NBA history to score 18,000 career points.
  • 2001
    Things started slow in Houston as Rice was still on the mend, rehabbing from his foot injury which limited him to just 20 games in the 2001–02 season.
    More Details Hide Details The following year he would manage to play in 62 games including 26 starts to average 9 points a game for a Rockets team that now featured center Yao Ming.
    After the season in which the Knicks lost in five games to the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the 2001 Playoffs, he would eventually be traded to the Houston Rockets for Shandon Anderson.
    More Details Hide Details In Houston Rice joined a young team featuring Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley and was initially excited about returning to a starting role after be relegated to more of a third-option with both the Lakers and Knicks.
  • 2000
    In New York Rice would take on a sixth-man role on the team and provide the Knicks with well needed support off the bench. In the 2000–01 season he played in 72 games, averaging 12 points-per-game.
    More Details Hide Details Rice made 25 starts, averaging 14.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in those games and led the Knicks in scoring 9 times. While Rice's defense is often singled out as the reason for his departure, he actually ranks 145th among all-time NBA players in career steals (958). His tenure with the Knicks lasted only one year, as he was hobbled by a foot injury (plantar fasciitis) and was unable to find a niche in New York behind Allan Houston and Latrell Sprewell.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    There was a report that Rice was upset when the Lakers exercised a $7-million option for 1999–2000 instead of letting him become a free agent.
    More Details Hide Details Shaquille O'Neal, Rice's close friend, believed that Rice was the pure shooter he needed to keep teams from double- and triple-teaming him in the playoffs, and felt partly responsible for bringing Rice to the Lakers (and trading Eddie Jones to do it). In the end, Rice wasn't able to win the hearts of Los Angeles fans after being traded for fan-favorite Eddie Jones, with many citing suspect defense and Rice's inability to perform in the triangle offense. As a result, the disgruntled Rice was eventually traded to the New York Knicks.
    The Lakers were swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the 1999 Playoffs, but Rice averaged 18 points per game. Prior to the 1999–00 season the Lakers hired head coach Phil Jackson, who had won 6 NBA Championships with the Chicago Bulls teams that featured Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
    More Details Hide Details The Lakers also acquired veterans such as Ron Harper, A.C. Green, as well as Rice`s former Miami teammates John Salley and Brian Shaw. Led by the play of O'Neal, who would go on to win the MVP award for the season, and the all-star play of Bryant, the Lakers won 67 games for first place in the Western Conference. Rice started in 80 games and averaged 15.9 points as the team's third option with 84 three-point shots for first on the Lakers. In the 2000 Playoffs, Rice averaged 12.4 points per game while shooting 41 percent from beyond the three point arc, a career best for the playoffs. The Lakers would go on to defeat the Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, and Portland Trail Blazers in the first three rounds of the playoffs en rote to advancing to the 2000 Finals to play the Indiana Pacers. In the second game of the Finals, Bryant suffered an ankle injury, and Rice would go on to score 21 points to help the Lakers take a 2–0 lead in the series. Rice would average 11.5 points a game for the series, including 16 points with 3 shots from three-point range in Game 6 as the Lakers defeated the Pacers 4 games to 2 to give Rice his first and only NBA championship.
    In 1999, Rice was again traded in exchange for fan favorite, Eddie Jones and Elden Campbell.
    More Details Hide Details The trade didn't immediately sit well with Laker fans but Rice was considered the last piece of the puzzle for the Lakers to return to the NBA Finals. Rice was leaving a Hornets team in turmoil with many players demanding trades coming out of a 4-month lockout. Coach Cowens had resigned, Anthony Mason was out for the year, Rice was coming back from an elbow injury that he needed to have surgery on, and the owner was in legal trouble. The trade to the Lakers made Rice the third scorer behind Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, a trio that general manager and Laker legend Jerry West envisioned would bring Los Angeles another NBA championship.
  • 1998
    The 1998–99 season would start late and last only 50 games due to a league lockout, and on March 10, 1999 the Hornets traded Rice to the Los Angeles Lakers.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1997
    Rice would average 22.3 points a game (8th in the league) during the 1997–98 season, finishing second in the league in minutes played and scoring 16 points in the 1998 NBA All-Star Game.
    More Details Hide Details The Hornets won 51 games, and in the first round of the 1998 Playoffs they managed to win a playoff series, defeating the Atlanta Hawks in the first round before losing to the defending champion Chicago Bulls in the second round.
    His play earned him his second straight All-Star game election, and at the 1997 NBA All-Star Game set an individual All-Star game records of 20 points in the third quarter and 24 points in the second half to finish with 26 points for the game.
    More Details Hide Details His 8–11 shooting performance including 4–5 three pointer shooting and his 20 points in the third quarter broke Philadelphia guard Hal Greer's record (19), set in 1968. By scoring 24 in a half, Rice surpassed the previous mark of 23, owned by Wilt Chamberlain and Tom Chambers. Rice's performance is listed on the NBA's 57 Memorable All-Star Moments. His performance helped the Eastern Conference win the game, and earned him the NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award. The Hornets would go on to win 54 games, and made it into the 1997 Playoffs where they were swept 3–0 by the New York Knicks in the first round.
  • 1996
    It would be the 1996–97 season in which Rice would earn the distinction of an elite player in the league.
    More Details Hide Details The Hornets had acquired veteran players Vlade Divac and Anthony Mason and no longer featured Johnson, and also hiring new head coach and NBA legend Dave Cowens. Rice would go on to average 26.8 points a game during the season, placing him third in the league in scoring, while leading the league in three-point shooting (47%) and minutes played.

    More Details Hide Details
  • 1995
    Days before the start of the 1995–96 season, newly hired Coach/GM Pat Riley organized a trade in which Rice was sent to the Charlotte Hornets along with Matt Geiger in exchange for disgruntled Hornets center Alonzo Mourning who had refused any contract negotiations.
    More Details Hide Details The Hornets paired Rice with high scoring forward Larry Johnson, and the two lead the team to 41 wins. Rice led the team in scoring with 21.6 points a game and led his team in three point field goals (171) and three point shooting percentage (42%).
    Despite not being selected to play in the annual NBA All-Star Game, Rice participated in the NBA All-Star Long Distance Shootout at the 1995 All-Star game in Phoenix, and won the contest, edging out another sharp-shooter, Reggie Miller.
    More Details Hide Details Later during the season in nationally-televised game against Shaquille O'Neal and the Orlando Magic he scored a career-high 56 points on 20 of 27 shots from the floor including 7 three-pointers. The 56 points were an NBA season-high for the 1994–95 season. Despite his individual success, the Heat were unable to make the playoffs.
  • 1994
    In the 1994–95 season, Rice averaged 22.3 points a game (10th in the league) and made 185 three point shots (6th in the league).
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1993
    Rice averaged 21.1 points a game in the 1993–94 season and led the Heat back into the playoffs and to their first ever playoff game win against the Atlanta Hawks, but the Heat were unable to win the hard fought first round series in which the Hawks prevailed 3 games to 2.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1991
    The 1991–92 season would prove to be a breakthrough season for Rice and the Heat, as the team improved to 38 wins and featured other young player such as Steve Smith and Brian Shaw.
    More Details Hide Details By now Rice had become the team's leading scorer and averaged 22.3 points a game with 155 three-point field goals (second in the league), leading the Heat to its first playoff series in which the young team were swept by the defending champion Chicago Bulls led by Michael Jordan. Despite this, the Heat actually won less games the following year, while Rice's scoring average slipped to 19 as the scoring load of Seikaly and Smith increased.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1989
    Rice started his senior season as a projected mid-first-round selection, but his stock rose due to his record-breaking performance in the NCAA Tournament, and he was selected #4 overall in the 1989 NBA draft by the Miami Heat.
    More Details Hide Details The Heat were an expansion team in the NBA and were now in their second-year in need of some offensive help after finishing last in the NBA in points per game in 1988–89. Joining other young players such as Sherman Douglas and Rony Seikaly, Rice would be called upon to deliver some of the scoring load despite being a rookie. Starting in 60 games, Rice averaged 13.6 points per game his rookie season just behind Douglas and Seikaly, but the lottery bound Heat only won 18 games. The following year only saw modest improvement for the team from 18 wins to 24 wins, but Rice started in every game he played and increased his scoring load to 17.4 points a game while leading the team in three point field goals with 71.
    Rice made the cover of Sports Illustrated on April 10, 1989.
    More Details Hide Details Rice continues to rank among Michigan's all-time leaders in several statistical categories, including:
    He led Michigan to the 1989 NCAA Men's Division I basketball championship, scoring an NCAA-record 184 points in tournament play, a record that still stands.
    More Details Hide Details Rice was also voted the tournament's Most Outstanding Player and was part of the Associated Press All-America second-team, after averaging 25.6 points for the season, while shooting 58% from the floor and 52% from three-point range.
