Things to Know


Reigned supreme with his deadly jumpshot.

A soft-spoken sharpshooter, Greer was one of the league’s greatest players in its early days. At the time of his enshrinement into the Hall of Fame in 1982, he ranked in the top ten all-time in points (21,586), field goals made (8,504) and minutes played (39,788).

Career
Greer was drafted by the Syracuse Nationals in 1958, and he went on to play his entire career with the franchise, which became the Philadelphia 76ers in 1963. He still ranks as the 76ers’ all-time leading scorer with 21,586 points.

Greer once told the Philadelphia Daily News that he’d like to be remembered for his consistency, and there’s no doubt he will be. The 10-time All-Star retired in 1973 as the NBA’s all-time leader in games played (1,122), but has long since lost claim to that honor.

Playing alongside fellow Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain and Billy Cunningham, Greer helped lead the 76ers to a remarkable 45-4 start and the NBA title in 1967. Greer averaged 22.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game that season. The 76ers’ 67-15 regular-season mark was an NBA record at the time.

Greer averaged 20 or more points per game in eight seasons, and posted a career-high 24.1 ppg in 1967-68. He was also named MVP of the 1968 All-Star Game.

Known for his unique yet prolific free-throw shooting style, Green used to jump when he shot free throws. He finished his career shooting 80% from the line.
