Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Rony Seikaly

Start here


Rony Seikaly wasn’t the most spectacular but was solid and held his own in the pros.

Considered one of the top college players from Syracuse Orange men’s basketball program, Seikaly’s stellar offense and defense placed him among the school’s all-time leaders in rebounds, points and blocks while earning several nationally recognized awards and honors. His number 4 has been retired and raised to the rafters of the Carrier Dome.

Drafted into the National Basketball Association (NBA) by the Miami Heat with the 9th pick of the 1988 draft and the first ever pick for the Heat, Seikaly became one of the team’s earliest franchise players as he ranked among the team’s top offensive and defensive contributors winning NBA player of the week twice and also amassing many of the teams records of which some are still standing. He also played for the Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic and New Jersey Nets and internationally in Spain with FC Barcelona (Spain).
