Stanley Roberts In Focus Long After NBA Career Roberts Graduates

Roberts attended Lower Richland High School in Hopkins, where he led his team to two straight state championships, was a Parade first-team All-American his senior year, and considered a top five player nationally, holding his own against Alonzo Mourning in the Dapper Dan and McDonald's All-Star Games.

Subsequently, he played collegiately at Louisiana State University, teaming up in his (Robert's) only season with Shaquille O'Neal, during O'Neal's first season at LSU. Roberts was forced to sit out his freshman season at LSU due to academic ineligibility, and would only play one season before leaving LSU to join the professional ranks.

Roberts started playing professionally in Spain, with Real Madrid, sharing teams with another future National Basketball Association player, Venezuelan Carl Herrera. In his only season, he helped the Liga ACB club to the Korać Cup final, an overtime loss against Pallacanestro Cantù of Italy.

Roberts was selected by the Orlando Magic in the 1st round (23rd overall) of the 1991 NBA draft, and went on to appear, in a career marred by injuries and other drawbacks, for the Magic, Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers in eight NBA seasons. Troubled by weight issues throughout his career, his best year in the league came during his first season with the Clippers, when he appeared in 77 games and averaged 11.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game, with 141 blocked shots.

Roberts missed all but 14 games in the 1993–94 season, then all of the next due to an Achilles tendon injury, first in one leg, then the other. Amazingly, he still bounced back for three more respectable seasons.

After an unassuming six-game spell with the Rockets, as a member of the 76ers in late 1999, Roberts was banned by the NBA for drug violations. Before retiring, he played in Greece, Turkey, the ABA and Puerto Rico. In the 2003 off-season, the 33-year-old signed for the Toronto Raptors, being waived shortly after.
