In 1995 Rice was shipped to the Charlotte Hornets where he continued his success. While there, he earned a 2nd and 3rd team all NBA selection and was named to three All-Star teams. When the Lakers needed a final piece to their puzzle they called on the Heat for Rice and gave up a lot to get him; and the piece fit. He helped the Lakers win the 2000 championship with his ability to hit big jumpers and was the perfect complement to Shaquille ONeal down low and Kobe Bryant on the wing. Rice never was popular with the fans of Los Angeles and was traded to the Knicks after the 2000 season. He never again achieved the success he had before, but his legacy was intact. Although Glen Rice was thought of as a selfish player who just loved to put up scoring stats, he is one of a handful of players that have won NCAA titles and NBA championships. That certainly says something.
