Bob Sura’s basketball journey began at Florida State, where he had a successful college career and became one of the standout players for the Seminoles. Recognizing his talent and potential, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected him 17th overall in the 1995 NBA Draft.
During his NBA tenure, Sura played for several teams, including the Cavaliers, Warriors, Pistons, Hawks, and Rockets. Throughout his career, Sura was known for his competitive spirit and ability to impact the game in various ways, from scoring bursts to crucial defensive plays.
During his time with the Atlanta Hawks, he nearly achieved three consecutive triple-doubles, a rare feat in the NBA. The third game, however, stirred controversy as Sura intentionally missed a shot to grab his tenth rebound, which led the NBA to disallow the triple-double.
