Gerald Damon Glass (born November 12, 1967) is a retired American professional basketball player.
Graduating from Amanda Elzy High School in Greenwood at the age of sixteen, Glass flew under the radar as a player and ended up at Delta State University. Legendary Alcorn State University coach Davey Whitney called Glass the best player in Mississippi.
Glass played for two years at Delta State University and then transferred to the University of Mississippi where he placed fourth in the nation in scoring as a junior. He finished his career, after just two seasons, as the school's sixth leading all-time scorer. Glass was affectionately referred to as "World Class Glass" at Ole Miss. He gained national attention with his legendary matchups against LSU's Chris Jackson.
He was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 20th overall pick in the 1990 NBA Draft. As a rookie, Glass set a Timberwolves franchise record for a reserve with 32 points off the bench versus the Los Angeles Lakers. Glass also played for the Detroit Pistons, New Jersey Nets and Charlotte Hornets in four NBA seasons from 1990–1996. His best season as a pro was in 1991-92 for the Timberwolves, when he appeared in 75 games averaging 11.5 points per game.
In 2004, Gerald Glass was honored by Chick-fil-A as part of their SEC Basketball Legends, along with LSU coach Dale Brown, University of Alabama star Derrick McKey, University of Tennessee sharpshooter Dale Ellis, University of Kentucky legend Dan Issel, and Auburn's Charles Barkley.
After sitting on the bench with Andy Kennedy's coaching staff at Ole Miss for a year, Glass accepted the head coaching position at his high school alma mater. He now serves as the head boys basketball coach at Madison Central High School in Madison, Mississippi

The 1990 NBA draft took place on June 27, 1990, in New York City, New York. One of the standouts of this draft is Basketball Hall of Famer Gary Payton. He became a nine-time All-Star, achieved the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in 1996, won an NBA Championship with the Miami Heat in 2006, holds many statistical records during his tenure with the now defunct Seattle SuperSonics, and was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2013.
The top pick of the draft was Syracuse's Derrick Coleman who was selected by the New Jersey Nets. In total, 52 of the 54 players selected went on to play at least one competitive game in the NBA, and six players were at some point of their career selected to play in the NBA All-Star Game. One player who had been projected to be a high lottery pick, if not potential #1 draft pick by media outlets and draft analysts was Loyola Marymount's Hank Gathers, who died of a heart condition in March 1990 during a game.1990 NCAA Men's Basketball All-Americans

The 1990–91 NBA season was the Timberwolves' 2nd season in the National Basketball Association. After playing one year at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, the Timberwolves moved into their new arena known as the Target Center, which opened on October 13, 1990. They played their first game there on November 2 defeating the Dallas Mavericks 98–85 before a sold out crowd of 19,006. However, the Timberwolves continued to struggle in their second season finishing fifth in the Midwest Division with a 29–53 record, despite posting a solid 7–5 record in April. Tony Campbell continued to lead the T-Wolves in scoring averaging 21.8 points per game. Tyrone Corbin finished second on the team in scoring with 18.0 points per game, while second-year star Pooh Richardson led them with 9.0 assists per game.1992–93 Detroit Pistons season
The 1992–93 NBA season was the Pistons' 45th season in the National Basketball Association, and 36th season in the city of Detroit. During the offseason, the Pistons signed free agent Terry Mills and acquired Olden Polynice from the Los Angeles Clippers. Under new head coach Ron Rothstein, the Pistons years of battle would catch up with them as they lost nine of their first eleven games. However, they would win ten of their next eleven games to climb back into playoff connection. At midseason, they traded Orlando Woolridge to the Milwaukee Bucks for All-Star guard Alvin Robertson. After posting many winning and losing streaks throughout the entire season, the Pistons missed the playoffs for the first time in ten years, finishing sixth in the Central Division with a 40–42 record. Joe Dumars and Isiah Thomas were both selected for the 1993 NBA All-Star Game.
Despite the struggles, Dennis Rodman once again led the league in rebounding with 18.3 per game. However, his bizarre behavior off the court was a great concern as he was involved in several off court incidents. Following the season, he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs, Mark Aguirre signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Clippers, and Rothstein was fired as coach.1995–96 Charlotte Hornets season
The 1995–96 NBA season was the 8th season for the Charlotte Hornets in the National Basketball Association. During the offseason, the Hornets acquired Glen Rice, Matt Geiger and second-year guard Khalid Reeves from the Miami Heat, while re-acquiring Kendall Gill from the Seattle SuperSonics. Rice would prove to be a solid pick with his long range ability from beyond the arch. He was also selected to play in the 1996 NBA All-Star Game. The Hornets got off to a slow start losing eight of their first eleven games, but played around .500 along the way. In January, they dealt Gill and Reeves to the New Jersey Nets for Kenny Anderson, who became the team's starting point guard while Muggsy Bogues sat out with a knee injury that only limited him to just six games. Scott Burrell was also out for the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury after 20 games.
The Hornets continued to play .500 basketball, but with Larry Johnson still suffering the lingering effects of an injured back, they missed the Playoffs by just one game, finishing sixth in the Central Division with a 41–41 record. The Hornets led the NBA in attendance for the seventh time in their eight-year history. Following the season, Johnson was traded to the New York Knicks, Anderson signed as a free agent with the Portland Trail Blazers, Robert Parish signed with the Chicago Bulls, and head coach Allan Bristow resigned after five seasons with the franchise.Amanda Elzy High School
