Jordan and Ewing were consensus All-Americans in 1984; the U.S. roster included four of the five players honored that year. “It was just a fun team,” Alford said. “I was 19 years old and a complete gym rat. The pick-up games (were competitive). Just practicing against Alvin Robertson, Vern Fleming, obviously Jordan; it was just an amazing group of guys that I got to practice against, from a guard standpoint, every single day. “I told Alvin years later, it’s the only time that I’ve ever done any kind of hiding in practice, (if) I knew coach (Indiana and national team coach Bob Knight) was going into a drill where you were going to get matched up against somebody.”
The following year, at 32, McKinney landed his first general manager job with the expansion Timberwolves, and in 1992 he accepted the unenviable task of breaking up the aging “Bad Boys” in Detroit. McKinney traded John Salley and Dennis Rodman but also drafted Lindsey Hunter and Allan Houston. He wept tears of joy when he landed future Hall of Famer Grant Hill with the third pick of the 1994 draft. When the franchise predictably struggled during its rebuild, McKinney took the hits — sometimes literally. During a practice in 1993, guard Alvin Robertson choked McKinney after being fined and suspended for skipping games, practices and rehab sessions.
Ron Harper: I remember earlier in my career, I’d play against Milwaukee and I was going up against [two-time Defensive Player of the Year] Sidney Moncrief and [1986 Defensive Player of the Year] Alvin Robertson and Jay Humphries and Jerry Reynolds, and I’m trying to talk to the referee. I ask, “If they’re holding me, ain’t that a foul?!” The referee turned to me and said, “You just play hard. It’s hand-to-hand combat. You need to adapt to survive.”

Robertson was released on bond on Dec. 12th, 2014 on a human trafficking case from 2009.

Authorities say former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson has been arrested after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Robertson was arrested Monday afternoon at a San Antonio apartment complex. Officials say he’d been on the run since Jan. 5 after cutting off the monitor. Sheriff’s officials say Robertson, a former NBA All-Star whose career ended in 1996, was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution. He’d been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor.
