The chance to make homeownership more accessible was one reason Bamba decided to invest in the firm with Admiral Capital, which was co-founded by NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson. Admiral Capital co-led Houwzer’s $4.5 million investment in January 2019, and participated in Houwzer’s $9.5 million Series A. The most recent funding round, led by Princeton-based Edison Partners, means Houwzer’s now raised $17 million in venture capital. “The investments that we make go beyond good business decisions – they should also be about making an impact,” Bamba said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Jordan was the best perimeter player of the ’90s. And the second-best was … John Stockton? Clyde Drexler? Grant Hill for that one year? Especially after Magic Johnson retired in 1991, nobody came anywhere close. Instead, Jordan’s era was one where Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and a young Shaquille O’Neal were the dominant forces. Malone and Barkley were the players who beat him out for MVP awards, while Olajuwon pushed Jordan down to third in 1993 and Robinson finished second, third and third at various points. No sane person considered another perimeter player ahead of Jordan on their MVP ballot from 1991 to 1998. In the two years Jordan (mostly) sat out, 193 of the 202 first-place MVP votes went to the bigs I listed above. Just nine went to perimeter players of any stripe. The six bigs I named above were the top six players in the 1995 MVP vote; only then did other perimeter players become a topic.
Storyline: GOAT Debate
Robinson was so incensed about it that in 2000 that when Jackson was the Western Conference All-Star coach and attempted to greet Robinson during the customary pregame introductions, the stone-faced big man sprinted past without acknowledging Jackson. “That’s just Phil,” sighs Kerr, who remains friendly with his former Chicago Bulls coach. “When he first mentioned the asterisk, I just rolled my eyes, because I knew his game. “He likes to provoke, to get under people’s skin. He was poking the Spurs because they were a threat.”
Even with his long list of accomplishments, some people only see one thing about David Robinson — his race — particularly in the wake of the George Floyd killing and the protests that have taken place since then. “I’ve had a lot of success and still some people assume the worst about me,” the seven foot tall Robinson told CNN Business, saying that he had a recent encounter in New York City where an older white woman who accidentally bumped into him and told him she was worried he was going to rob her.
Robinson said the ultimate goal is to invest in minority neighborhoods that are often overlooked. “People often don’t chase deals in these communities. They are looking primarily for good yields and low risk. Even with the past few great years for real estate, many of these areas have not benefited,” Robinson said. Bassichis said that the firm invested in a Hilton hotel in Houston in 2013 and in conjunction with that deal, Admiral Capital Group launched a program to create internships for minority students looking to go into the hospitality business.
