Part of that adjustment entails processing the complicated relationship with their sport. “You want to be sure your life goes on. No one wants to hear, Hey, didn’t you used to be . . . ,” says Strickland, who recently left an assistant’s job at South Florida but is trying to move up the college basketball coaching ranks. “But you don’t turn your back on your passion, you know? My love of basketball didn’t go away when I stopped playing.”
Rod Strickland: If you have a chance to provide for your family, I think you do that. Coaches can leave and go to another team, but some people criticize a kid for leaving when he has an opportunity to be in the NBA. Marcus Camby made $130 million in his career. Carmelo Anthony is making [$24.56 million for the 2016-17 season]. The cynics say, ‘How dare they leave and make $130 million?’ But how can you be a cynic with someone who’s making over $10 million a year? I got my degree at 47 (Strickland’s now 50). If that’s something that you’re really serious about, you have plenty of time to get it.
The 1988-89 Knicks, under coach Rick Pitino, attempted 1,147 3-pointers, up by more than 400 from the previous league high, and made 386, to shatter the former 271 standard. Saturday, as part of the Knicks’ 70th anniversary season, “The Bomb Squad” of Mark Jackson, Johnny Newman, Rod Strickland, Trent Tucker and Gerald Wilkins staged a Garden reunion and were honored in a ceremony. The group sat for an interview session before individual pictures as well as the club’s iconic Bomb Squad promo poster. “Congratulations, Bombinos. It was great watching all those 3-point shots,” Pitino said in a taped greeting.
