Although, he never made an All-Star team, Strickland had a nice following. Fans respected his style of play, especially his consistency. Between 1990 and 1999, Rod averaged 15.7 points and 8.5 dimes per game. His jump shot was questionable, but it didn't matter because he was able to get in the lane at will. He was a big point at a solid 6'3", 175. Strick used that size and the handle he learned growing up in the Bronx to either score in the paint or dish for an assist. Strickland currently sits at ninth all-time in dimes.
