In fact, since the NBA moved the 3-point line back in 1997, no one has come close to topping Jordan’s mark of midrange makes in a season. Most midrange buckets in a season (since 1997-98) 1997-98 Michael Jordan: 671. 2005-06 Dirk Nowitzki: 564. 2003-04 Kevin Garnett: 540. 2000-01 Glenn Robinson: 506. 2005-06 Kobe Bryant: 502. 2008-09 Dirk Nowitzki: 501.
General manager Elton Brand’s first stab at a fix has been scoping the market for more shooters. Embiid is an average shooter and Simmons is a nonshooter. The team’s offense excels with just one of them but gets clunky with them both, so finding players who can space the floor is critical. The Sixers have expressed interest in a long list of wings, including Malik Beasley (Nuggets), Glenn Robinson III (Warriors), Davis Bertans (Wizards), E’Twaun Moore (Pelicans), and Andre Iguodala (Grizzlies), according to multiple league sources.
“My dad,” Robinson said of the former No. 1 overall pick, “I knew him, but he was playing and busy. I was raised by my mom and grandma. But my dad was in the league. So I’ve seen the money. I’ve seen the cars. One day I went to practice with him. My dad let me sit on his lap while he was driving and we raced Ray Allen. At the same time, I come from Gary, Indiana. I’ve given back to the kids in the community. I’ve seen that people really do struggle. Even my grandmother was on food stamps for the longest time. So this hoopin’ is cool and all. But if you aren’t using this platform to help people, it ain’t nothing.”
Keith Langlois: You didn’t have a lot to work with in free agency, yet you wound up satisfying some critical needs. Glenn Robinson, it looks like, will be in the rotation at minimum and the two veterans, Jose Calderon and Zaza, are the kind of guys who find ways to help even if they’re not playing. How critical was it for you to add those two for what they might mean for leadership and presence as much as for what they can still contribute as players? Dwane Casey: Huge. Big time. I see both of them contributing because of Jose’s 3-point shooting. He did a great job in Cleveland last year and to get those guys, Ed and his staff did a great job of what we had to work with as far as our cap is concerned. They did a great job of plucking those guys off and getting the guys who are really going to help us.
Big Dog, a two-time All-Star as an NBA layer from 1994-2005, is a big man at 6-7 and Stephen A is a much shorter and skinnier fellow who fights back with his mouth, and, boy, did he ever Tuesday on his ESPN “First Take” show. “We don’t like one another, we never have liked one another, we never will like one another,” Smith said on air. “And there was a confrontation back in the day.”
Smith did admit fault bringing Robinson up at the recent Sirius XM Town Hall Meeting. “I don’t hold anything against (Robinson) for what he said on TMZ.” Smith said. “I deserved that because I never should have said his name out of my mouth. He’s retired. He’s been gone. Nobody’s been thinking about him. I should not have answered that question. That’s on me. “But just like that’s on me, the facts are for me. … The level of disrespect he showed towards Randy Ayers was so egregious, so unnecessary, so bush league that every single criticism I gave him at that time, he deserved that. And I maintain that more than a decade later. I stand by every single damn word that I said.”
Earlier this week, Wade officially welcomed Toronto Raptors swingman Terrence Ross and Indiana Pacers forward Glenn Robinson III to Team Wade. Both players have been wearing the Li-Ning Wade All City 4. Ross, now in his fourth season, is a former dunk champion, while Robinson III is beginning his sophomore campaign. They join Dorell Wright and Udonis Haslem as official members of the brand.
“I should have left (school) my sophomore year to be real with you,” Williams said. “It was the wrong move for me to stay. This is where my pops helps me out with certain things. Let’s look at the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Let’s break it down. “So when the NBA implemented the weighted scale if you came out and you were the eighth pick in the draft that equates to a certain amount of money. There’s no huge discrepancy from the first pick or the eighth pick. I mean, there is … you might get $2 million compared to $4 million. But before they implemented that weighted scale, if you were a top five pick that’s when Glenn Robinson (No. 1 overall pick, 1994 draft) signed that [10-year, $68 million] deal.
West’s decision to leave in pursuit of immediate gratification in what could be the final season of his career amplified everything. As team president Larry Bird said, West’s surprising move brought about several other changes, as it cost the team its starting power forward and on-court leader. At that point there was no point in trying to maintain the core of the teams that reached the conference finals in consecutive seasons. The mutual desire for Hibbert to move on was another major factor, opening a major hole at center that had been filled for seven seasons. Stuckey, Allen and Whittington were re-signed, but the upcoming roster still includes eight new players: Chase Budinger, Toney Douglas, Monta Ellis, Jordan Hill, Glenn Robinson III and rookies Myles Turner, Joe Young and Rakeem Christmas.
A Michigan athletic department spokesman confirmed early Wednesday that all three have indeed already filed their requests. Requesting an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee does not equate to declaring for the draft. The committee analyzes participating players and delivers a narrow window of where the individual could be selected in the draft. These evaluations are typically cautious in the projection of a prospect’s draft position. Michigan coach John Beilein is scheduled to meet with the media on Wednesday afternoon and is expected to update where McGary, Robinson and Stauskas are in the process. The deadline for the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee’s response is April 14. The NBA’s early entry eligibility deadline is April 27, while the draft is scheduled for June 26 in New York.
Michigan sophomores Mitch McGary, Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas have all requested evaluations from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. The committee, consisting of NBA player personnel experts and chaired by NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson, is offered by the NBA to provide potential early entries to the NBA draft with hard information regarding their standing as professional prospects.
