For Old Time’s Sake: Jamal Mashburn

Monster Mash

Jamal Mashburn thrived as a scorer at every level. He started at Cardinal Hayes in the Bronx, then took his talents to Wildcat country where he earned First Team All-American honors as a Junior, and then got drafted 4th overall by the Mavs in ’93. Mash led all rookies in scoring during the ’93-94 season averaging 19.2 points and became one of the best young Small Forwards in the league. He was traded to Miami during the ’96-97 season after 2 injury-plagues years in Dallas and became an integral part of a Heat squad that won 4 straight Division Titles. Mash was traded to the Hornets in 2000 and earned All-Star honors in 2003 while averaging 21.6 pts, 6.1 rbs, and 5.6 asts. He retired after the ’04 season and now works for ESPN as an NBA analyst.

    Decent player but not clutch: watch the end of game 7 against the Knicks in 2000 to illustrate the point.
