Walter Robert Szczerbiak (/ˈsɜːrbi.æk/ SUR-bee-ak; born March 5, 1977) is an American retired basketball player. He played ten seasons for four teams in the National Basketball Association.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Szczerbiak was born in Madrid, Spain, to Marilyn[3] and Walter Szczerbiak, a former ABA player who helped lead Real Madrid to three European League championships. While there he set a Spanish League single-game scoring record with 65 points.[3] Wally spent much of his childhood in Europe during his father's playing career.

When Walt retired, he moved his family back to his native Long Island, New York. Wally played basketball at Cold Spring Harbor High School in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. As a senior in the 1994–95 season he averaged 36.6 points per game[4] and 15.9 rebounds.[3] He was named the winner of the Richard Sangler Award as Nassau County's outstanding boys' basketball player.[5] Szczerbiak competed for the Long Island team in the 1994 Empire State Games. Despite Szczerbiak's outstanding high school statistics, his small school background failed to impress East Coast college coaches and he went unrecruited.[3]

College career[edit]

During the fall of his high school senior year, Szczerbiak and his parents visited the Miami University campus. The following Monday, despite Walt's wishes for Wally to wait on making a decision, Szczerbiak called coach Herb Sendek and committed to play for the Redskins[3] (as Miami's sports teams were known until becoming the "RedHawks" in Szczerbiak's junior season).[6]

In his first two seasons there he averaged 8.0 and 12.8 points. As a junior in 1997–98, he burst onto the scene as one of college basketball's leading scorers, averaging 24.4 points per game and earning first-team All-MAC honors despite missing several games with a broken right wrist.[7][8]

In his senior season, he averaged 24.2 points per game and led the Redhawks to the Sweet 16 in the 1999 NCAA Tournament as a #10 seed. Szczerbiak scored a career-high 43 points in a first-round win over #7 seed Washington. He followed that with 24 points in a second round toppling of #2 seed Utah, leading the Redhawks to the Sweet 16. Despite Szczerbiak's 23-point performance they would eventually lose to Kentucky 58-43. Miami finished the season 24-8.

Szczerbiak was named MAC Player of the Year, and first-team All-American by Basketball News and Sports Illustrated and second-team All-American by the Associated Press (AP).[8]

He finished his college career as Miami University's second all-time leading scorer, with 1,847 points.[9] A marketing major, he graduated from the university's Richard T. Farmer School of Business.

In 2001, Szczerbiak became the fifth Miami player to have his jersey retired (#32). In 2009, he was inducted into the Miami University Athletic Hall of Fame.[8]

NBA career[edit]

Minnesota Timberwolves (1999–2006)[edit]

The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Szczerbiak 6th overall in the 1999 NBA draft. His best year as a pro was in 2002, when he was a coaches' selection to the Western Conference All-Star team. Later he tied a Timberwolves franchise record of 44 points on April 13, 2003, since broken by Kevin Love, Corey Brewer, Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Mo Williams. Szczerbiak was coming off the bench for the 2004–05 NBA season. He was uncomfortable with the role and wanted to be a starter. In the 2005–06 season, the former All–Star returned to the starting role.

Boston Celtics (2006–07)[edit]

On January 26, 2006, Szczerbiak, along with Michael Olowokandi, Dwayne Jones and a conditional first–round draft pick, was traded to the Boston Celtics for Ricky Davis, Mark Blount, Marcus Banks, Justin Reed, and two second-round draft picks.[10]

Szczerbiak underwent knee surgery in the 2006 offseason to fix a knee which had been injured for several months.

In the 2006–07 season, Szczerbiak played well early on, including a 35-point performance against the Charlotte Bobcats early in the season. However, he was soon plagued by several injuries to both ankles, which greatly affected his shooting and jumping ability. Szczerbiak decided to have season-ending surgery on his ankles.

Seattle SuperSonics (2007–08)[edit]

On June 28 (the night of the 2007 NBA draft), the Celtics traded Szczerbiak to the Seattle SuperSonics along with Delonte West and Jeff Green (the 5th overall pick) for Ray Allen and Glen Davis (35th overall).[11]

Cleveland Cavaliers (2008–09)[edit]

Szczerbiak with the Cavaliers

On February 21, 2008, Szczerbiak and West were traded by the SuperSonics to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 3-way deal involving the Chicago Bulls that sent Ira Newble and Donyell Marshall from Cleveland to Seattle, Adrian Griffin from Chicago to Seattle, Cedric Simmons, Drew Gooden, Larry Hughes, and Shannon Brown, from Cleveland to Chicago, and Ben Wallace and Joe Smith from Chicago to Cleveland.

Szczerbiak played in 25 regular season games (one start) with the Cavaliers averaging 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds. He scored 18 points against Detroit on April 16, 2008. Between the SuperSonics and the Cavaliers, Szczerbiak played in 75 games (two starts) and averaged 11.5 points and 2.9 rebounds.

During the 2008 NBA Playoffs Szczerbiak started at shooting guard for the Cavaliers, helping the Cavs defeat the Washington Wizards in the first–round by putting up 26 points and shooting 6–13 from the 3 point line in game six. For the playoffs, Szczerbiak averaged 10.8 points per game.

During the 2008–2009 NBA season, Szczerbiak played in 74 games, starting in 5 of them. Given 20 minutes a game, Szczerbiak averaged 7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists while shooting .450% from the field and .411% from the 3-point line.

Retirement[edit]

Szczerbiak was in discussions with the Denver Nuggets in August 2009, about joining the team on a one-year contract.[12] He reportedly rejected a veteran's minimum contract offer from Denver, opting instead to continue to rehabilitate his knee and possibly test the free agent market later.[13]

On November 5, 2009, Szczerbiak revealed he'd had a third surgery performed on his left knee, which doctors told him was career-ending.[14]

Sports broadcasting[edit]

Szczerbiak succeeded in making the transition to sports broadcasting, becoming a basketball analyst for CBS College Sports.[15]

Currently, he is an analyst at MSG Network covering the New York Knicks and contributor to the teams' post-game broadcasts.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Szczerbiak is of Ukrainian origin: his grandparents were Ukrainians and met in the refugee camp in West Germany after the World War II.[17] Then they emigrated to Pittsburgh.[17]

Szczerbiak met his wife, Shannon (Ward), when they were both in the same freshman orientation group at Miami University and were married July 1, 2000.[18] They have five children.

Szczerbiak has a brother, Will, nine years his junior, and a sister, Wendy, thirteen years younger.[3] Wendy played college basketball for Lehigh University.[19]

In 2013, Szczerbiak was inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame.[20]
