It seems that point guard Isaiah Rider has come out of retirement and wants to come back to the NBA, several sources told FootBasket. Rider, who just now turned 38 years old back in March, wants to make a comeback. He was last seen with the Denver Nuggets back in the 2001-02 season, averaging about nine points, three rebounds, and one assist per game for the team.
He has had about 10,000 points and about 1,500 assists for his nine-year career. Rider was also the Slam Dunk champion back in 1994. Rider has been received interest by the teams like the New Jersey Nets and now the Minnesota Timberwolves. It has been reported that Rider has matured after his incidents he has been occurred in.
If the NBA doesn't work out for him, a source told FB that he may play overseas like a team like the Olympiakos where he might play with such stars like Josh Childress, Linas Kleiza, and Von Wafer. He may also join the North Texas Fresh of the American Basketball Association.
I hope all works out for Rider. Anyways, I hope you know some of your NBA history. Rider was known for that crazy shot, known for the Shot of the Decade. Not ringing a bell? Don't worry, I got it all covered.
Damn! If he could do that again, he's good to go. Literally.
