Gene Banks

Chicago Bulls
6-8 225 Forward

Played all 82 games after being acquired from Spurs for Steve Johnson and second-round pick prior to 1985-86... San Antonio drafted him No. 28 overall in 1981... Huge letdown for one of most highly recruited schoolboy players ever... Born May 15, 1959, in Philadelphia... Deserves to shoot more, given his lifetime percentage... Deep-thinking sort and he has political ambitions... A Christian who has delved deeply into study of Hebrew... One of seven siblings... Made only $193,000 last season before becoming free agent... Led Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring during senior year at Duke with 18.3 ppg... Has never missed more than two games in a season since entering NBA.

Relevant Stats:
10.9 ppg, 51.7 FG%, 4.4 rpg
