Terence Stansbury

Indiana Pacers
6-5 170 Guard

Biggest moment remains 1984-85 Slam Dunk contest, when he finished third... Started 17 games last season, but averaged only 17.9 minutes... Shooting percentage tumbled to .433, thanks in part to .169 mark on three-point attempts... Born Feb. 27, 1961, in Los Angeles... Drafted 15th overall by Mavericks in 1984... Signed deal worth $165,000 for this season... Capable of offensive explosions as single-game high of 22 points showed... Temple's first-rounder since Guy Rodgers in 1958... His pro career figures to be a short one.

Relevant Stats:
6.7 ppg, 2.78 apg, 43.3 FG%

Stansbury did not come 3rd in the slam dunk contest he was robbed by the officials. I remembered that quite clear, he did the statue of liberty dunk which was a 10 and that eliminitated Michael jordan from the competition. Then the officials got involve and the rest is history. The NBA fans havent heard from him since.

I saw it with my own 2 eyes. I remember Bill Russell saying it was the prettiest dunk that he ever saw.
