Robert Sura Jr. is an American former professional basketball player who last played for the Houston Rockets in the NBA. At 6'5", 200 lb, he played as a guard. Born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Sura played in high school at G.A.R. Memorial. He had a high game of 69 while leading G.A.R. to a remarkable streak of 86 consecutive league victories. After high school, Sura played basketball for Florida State University, playing on the same team as fellow NBA players Charlie Ward and Sam Cassell. Sura was named the ACC Rookie of the Year his freshman year at Florida State. Sura was drafted 17th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1995 NBA Draft. His best season with the Cavaliers was his last, averaging 13.8 points per game during the 1999-2000 season. He was then traded to the Golden State Warriors, and has also played for the Detroit Pistons, the Atlanta Hawks and the Houston Rockets. With the Hawks, he gained attention by almost posting three straight triple-double games - the third was subsequently taken away from him by the league when he purposely missed a layup to get his 10th rebound.
