Default Nets Waive Cliff Robinson

Quote:
East Rutherford, NJ -- (Sports Network) - After re-signing Vince Carter, the New Jersey Nets released 18-year veteran Clifford Robinson.

The 40-year-old Robinson appeared in 50 games for New Jersey last season, averaging 4.1 points and 2.4 rebounds. He was the most tenured active player before his release.

In 2 1/2 seasons with the Nets, Robinson averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds.

The Buffalo, New York native owns career averages of 14.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steals with Portland, Phoenix, Detroit, Golden State and New Jersey. Named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team twice (2001-02 & 1999-00), Robinson won the 1992-93 NBA Sixth Man Award when he played for the Trail Blazers.

we should give Uncle Cliff a round of applause. he came in when the Nets were in dire straits, and played a central role off the bench teh season before. granted he was no savior, but his play and defense had helped the nets.


his smoking pot did not cost the nets the miami series. Nets would not have won that one anyway, with the way krstic vanished.


but his career is in the twilight and he has become ineffective.


so we thank you Uncle Cliffy and best of luck with the rest of your career

Uncle Cliff shouldn't have even be re-signed in the first place. They are ratyfing the original mistake.
