Peter Press (Pistol Pete) Maravich was a three time All-American at Louisiana State University (LSU) and averaged 44.2 points per game (before the 3-point line was instituted in College Basketball) for his career at LSU before playing for 11 years in the NBA. He played for 3 teams: the Atlanta Hawks (1970 – ’74), the New Orleans/Utah Jazz (1974 – ’80) and the Boston Celtics for less than a year (1980). Pistol Pete led the NBA in scoring in 1977 with the Jazz and was a 2-time 1st Team All-NBA (1976 and ’77). He was also voted to the NBA’s All-Time Team and his uniform number (#7) was retired in Utah AND New Orleans, as well as his #23 at LSU. With Atlanta, he was named to the All-Rookie first team in 1971. Pete Maravich was the youngest player ever to be inducted into the Naismith National Hall Of Fame. He averaged 24.2 points per game over his career in the NBA. An injury (knee problems) kept him from playing beyond the 1980 season. Pistol Pete Maravich died of a heart attack in 1988. He was only 40 years old! He was, truly, one of the “Greats” in NBA history!
