Scott Wedman

Boston Celtics
6-7 225 Forward

Started 18 games when Kevin McHale was injured and Boston went 15-3... Very important part of the Celtics... Played only last game in finals due to broken ribs sustained earlier in playoffs against Bucks... Completed third full season with Boston and got his second championship ring... Born July 29, 1952, in Harper, Kan.... Kings chose him sixth overall in 1974, out of Colorado... Hasn't averaged double figures for Boston since arriving from Cavaliers in January 1983 for Darren Tillis, cash and a 1983 first-rounder... Had 10 or more points 14 times as starter... Streak shooter played in more games than he had in any season since 1980-81.

Relevant Stats:
8.0 ppg, 48.1 FG%, 2.4 rpg

I think Scot Wedman is the most unheralded, overachieming basketball player in the history of the game. His penchant was t exude guts. A hero he was for years on a little team that could, in Kansas City with Nate "Tiny" Archibald, Otis Birdsong, and Sam Lacy. The coach that stuck with them in thick and thin was none other then the incomprable Cotton Fitzsimmons.

A year that they played for the Western Conference title will be a year that made me a believer.
