Rod Strickland, Mentor?

Much of this week’s Cheap Seats was ripped from the police blotter during the Chris Webber Era of D.C. hoops, a time when local cops handcuffed more Bullets and Wizards than they did IMF protesters.

Nobody got popped during those years more than Rod Strickland. His rap sheet as an NBA player included multiple arrests for assault, three DUI busts, an indecent exposure charge, disorderly conduct on U Street, ripping a gash in a teammate's forehead in a hotel room brouhaha, and, best of all, an indictment for allegedly KO’ing a waitress in the parking lot of a T.G.I. Friday's in Bowie.

So it’s a little shocking to see what Strickland is up to these days. He's a role model.

I'm not buying it.

  • TIGER

    dont know judith but chyrel is very pretty and so is arlene you hater

  • The Truth

    It doesn't matter what any of them look like; this doesn't change the well known fact that Rod is a cheater; he's not faithful to his wife Cheryl Strickland LOl! About the posters who are selectively spelling this easy name incorrectly to avoid an interet trail on her name;) no one cares that she's married to Rod; like this is something to be proud of. He's a poor example of a husband; she can have that title she's had it this long knowing her hubby's pattern with the women. Cheryl should ask him about one of his recent under the age of 24 JO's from Memph who found out she wasn't the only one LLS! so naive!! Running her mouth to her GF's (we all know how that goes) bragging about being seriously involved with him... REALLY?! Bragging about what!

  • Beyoncefan77

    Blazers Top 40: No. 23 Rod Strickland

    23. Rod Strickland | point guard

    Ht: 6-foot-3 | Wt: 185 pound
    Seasons as a Blazer: 5 (1992-1996, 2000-2001)
    Statistics in Portland: 16.2 points, 8.2 assists

    Back to Trail Blazers Top 40 home

    Drive and dish led to 20 assists – twice

    Growing up on the playgrounds in The Bronx, New York, Rod Strickland would often find himself going one-on-one with his opponent.

    "It's like you were on an island, and he is trying to embarrass you, and you are trying to do the same to him," Strickland remembers. "So when I went to the basket, I was thinking 'I'm making this business."'

    Fearless drives in traffic, finished off by a slick assist or a twisting layin with great spin off the backboard became a signature of Strickland, who had the difficult job of replacing Terry Porter at point guard.

    "I remember his ability to get to the basket – him going coast-to-coast and finishing around the basket," Porter said. "He was one of the best guards in the pick-and-roll because he could split double teams."

    In five seasons, Strickland vaulted to third on the team's all-time assists list (he has since slipped to fourth), and he still holds the franchise mark for assists in a game – 20 – which he did twice , against Phoenix in 1994 and at Houston in 1996.

    In 17 NBA seasons, Strickland played for nine teams, but he says his time in Portland was his favorite, even though he led the league in assists with Washington.

    "In Portland, we won," Strickland said. "Losing never feels good."

    Strickland arrived as a free agent in the offseason of 1992, weeks after the Blazers lost to Chicago in the NBA Finals. It became an odd time in Blazers history, as the team's championship window quickly closed amid injuries to the aging Clyde Drexler, Jerome Kersey and Terry Porter.

    "I remember when I first got there, they still had Clyde, Terry, Buck (Williams), and I was coming off the bench with Mario Elie and Cliff Robinson thinking, 'Wow! We have a helluva team'," Strickland said. "But then Clyde got hurt and everything changed."

    Strickland moved into the starting lineup, Porter moved over to shooting guard, and the Blazers salvaged a 51-win season despite starters missing 58 games because of injury. Coach Rick Adelman used 21 starting lineups that season.
    By 1994, Strickland was the full-time starter, and he turned in some of the flashiest point guard play in franchise history. Never afraid of a play that involved a high-degree of difficulty, Strickland twice had franchise-record 20-assist performances.

    The only problem is he can't remember them.

    "I would guess that Cliff had a good game, Terry and Clyde hit some shots," Strickland said laughing. "My thing as a point guard was if guys got hot, you continue to look for them."

    Today, Strickland is using his point-guard experience to teach one of the best point guards in college basketball, Kentucky freshman John Wall. Strickland is an assistant coach for the Wildcats, who are ranked No. 1 by the Associated Press.

    "I love coaching because I like dealing with players," Strickland said. "It's rewarding to help kids on and off the court, because I feel like I have a lot of experiences I can relate to them – both good and bad."

    As a former point guard, Strickland spends a lot of time with Wall, a phenom who is expected to turn professional and be the top pick in the NBA draft this summer. Strickland said all the hype about Wall is warranted.

    "Oh my God, he is the truth," Strickland said. "He is very, very impressive. He's a go-getter. He's not a guy you have to push to get into the gym. But we talk about the NBA game as the situations come up, and I try to give him advice. But he has his eyes on the prize. He knows what he wants."

    Strickland, 43, is married to wife Cheryl and has four kids: Torin (15), Tai (10), Terrell (8) and Tanner (4).

    BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4 Kids my ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more like 7 kids. Rod had another child after his and arlene child, with a groupie.

    UK assistant basketball coach pleads not guilty to DUI
    By Josh Kegley - jkegley@herald-leader.com

    A University of Kentucky assistant basketball coach has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol.

    Rod Strickland, 43, of Lexington was arraigned Thursday in Fayette District Court. Strickland did not appear in court; his attorney, Jim Lowry of Lexington, entered the plea on his behalf.

    Strickland was arrested about 3 a.m. Sunday at Tates Creek and New Circle roads after an officer saw Strickland run a red light, according to documents filed in Fayette District Court. The officer administered several tests for alcohol intoxication, and Strickland failed, the report said. The officer noted in his report that Strickland smelled of alcohol. Strickland refused a breath test, according to the report.

    Strickland also is charged with disregarding a traffic light, failure to maintain insurance and improper registration.

    A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 12.
    Rod Strickland has been charged with DUI four times in the past 12 years.

  • Mel Lewis

    Thank you so much for giving my cousin all the free publicity. TD Jakes says that you should thank your critics for giving you air time you dont have to pay for.
    As I have read all the comments that have been blogged and posted from last year until the 6th month of 2010 I am appalled that you guys have so much time on your hands that you could be spending trying to accomplish half of what this man has done in his almost 47yrs coming in July on this place that we are blessed enough to live on God's earth. He has given us all the same ability. To live a life more abundantly. While you guys are gossiping and telling half truths, Rod is laughing all way to the bank. I am going to give you all a brief history lesson on Rod Strickland. Our late grandmothers are sisters. Yes he was reared in the Harry Truman Progects in the Bronx. He came from very humble beginnings youngest of 4 children, Not even the best baller in the family his brothers Steven & Byron were better than he was. But Rod was the chosen one yes married to Cheryl five beautiful children , one before marriage an adult son whom he has always provided for. He is adored by the whole family. Yes we all make mistakes Judge lest ye be judged.. Rod the business man who made wise business choices whose millions are making millions.... What better man to mentor and be an assistant coach to teach young men tough lessons from his own past mistakes? HOW CAN I TEACH YOU SOMETHING THAT I HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED? Rod is not like most NBA players he came from a two parent home mother was
    head rn nurse emergency room Harlem Hospital and his Dad was an ac/refrigrator technican. Folks I am simply saying that we all make mistakes we all have skeltons in our closests. SOME OF YOU HAVE WARM BODIES FROM LAST NIGHT...
    It takes a miserable person to put someone else's garbage in the street. He is going to make more mistakes and unfortunately 4 u guys longevity runs in our family. So you will be here this time in the next decade speaking about Rod and his 5th DUI and whatever other mistakes he may make. But one thing you must keep in mind he can afford to make them how about you? OLD PROVERB 6 MONTHS TO MIND MY OWN BUSINESS AND 6 MONTHS TO LEAVE YOURS ALONE, YOU LIVE IN YOUR HOUSE AND I LIVE IN MY HOUSE. CAN YOU GUYS AFFORD TO RETIRE AT 40? REMEMBER BABY ROD DIDNT SPEND LAVISHLY WHILE HE ACQUIRED HIS WEALTH, HE LIVED MODESTLY. HOW MANY OF YOU GO TO WORK JUST BECAUSE? STOP THROWING THEM STONES, DIG A DITCH FOR YOUR BROTHER MAKE SURE YOU DIG 2 ONE 4 YOURSELF.... GET A LIFE PEOPLE AND MAKE SOME WEALTH FOR YOURSELF WHILE WE LIVING IN THIS RECESSION BECAUSE ROD DONT HAVE CARE IN THE WORLD. DO YOUR RESEARCH IF THEY FIRE HIM HE IS LOSING 1200.00 A MONTH NO BENEFITS PEANUTS BABY.............

    rodneys cousin truth of the matter is yes he made alot of mistakes , but you do have to be responsible for what you created ,you just cant call a do ever once your child is here, its very convienient for this rodney guy to have his family members rally for him,and he tries to have people downplay his childs mother on the net while he hides as if he is the victim ....and you have the ordasity to qoute scriptures ....now he is a mentor to other peoples kids while his kid is alienated. what type of man wont even speak to his child ....obviously a talk is important , i mean thats what he gets paid to do these days .....oh and its great that he comes from a hard working mother and father but where are they in the life of this child ?????? can you answer that , where is the god in pretending the child dosent exist .... this man has that much control over people that even his own family are to afraid to hit him with some truth ..........bottom line is that your cousin is merely a coward .....and that sad part of it you know that to be true .....god is head of all and your cousin will have to answer to him since your family are so afraid to ruffel his feathers ..
