NBA career

After starting his senior season as a projected mid-first round selection, after his performance in the NCAA Tournament his stock rose to the point where he was selected #4 overall in the 1989 NBA Draft by the 2nd-year Miami Heat, who were in dire need of offensive help after finishing last in the NBA in points per game in 1988-89. 1989 NBA Draft - 27 June 1989 - New York City, New York See also: List of NBA Drafts, NBA Draft First Round Second Round Miami Heat - Sherman Douglas, G, Syracuse Categories: 1989 in sports | NBA Draft ...

Days before the start of the 1995-96 NBA season, Rice was traded to the Charlotte Hornets along with Matt Geiger in exchange for disgruntled Hornets center Alonzo Mourning. A spokesperson for the Hornets repeatedly remarked in a press-conference that Glen Rice was "twice as nice as McDice". It was a trade that worked out for both teams, as Mourning quickly established himself as an All-Star in Miami, and Rice would make the first of three consecutive All-Star Game appearances, including in 1996-97, where he would be named the All-Star Game MVP.

After winning a championship with the Lakers, Rice was traded to the New York Knicks where he would take on a sixth-man role on the team and provide the Knicks with well needed support off the bench.


His personal outstanding achievement in the NBA came when he was named MVP of the 1997 All-Star game, which was commerating the 50th anniversary of NBA. In the game, he set All-Star game records of 20 points in the third quarter and 24 points in the second half. He also won the NBA All-Star Long Distance Shootout at the 1995 All-Star game in Phoenix.

In the closing years of his career, he struggled with his weight (leading to knee problems) and became slow to keep up with the emerging younger talent in the NBA.
