Rumeal Robinson, 1992-93 Upper Deck (Basketball Week No. 6)

Name: Rumeal Robinson
Team: Atlanta Ha — no, wait, New Jersey Nets
Positions: Guard, off-balance
Value of card: A week-old scab
Key 1992-93 stat: One U-Haul rented
Fun facts about the trade that sent Rumeal Robinson from Atlanta to New Jersey:
  • The Nets loved Robinson's unorthodox shooting style, which involved scooping the ball toward the hoop then falling to the ground in pain.
  • Hawks coach Bob Weiss never trusted Robinson, mostly because he never believed his first name was Rumeal.
  • In return, the Hawks received Roy Hinson, Mookie Blaylock, Mookie Wilson and a housecat named Mookie.
  • It was the first time Robinson was traded. It definitely was not the last.
  • Robinson actually demanded the trade. I mean, who wouldn't want to live in New Jersey?

    Actually, I'm more worried about the Boston defender that looks like he's dodging a car. It's one thing to get posterized by Jordan, it's another thing to get totally BLOW'D UP by Baby Rummy.
