Career highlights of ABA legend Roger Brown (VIDEO)

Sep 4, 2013, 4:18 PM EDT

Roger Brown never played in the NBA, his eight year professional career was all in the ABA.

However, he was one of the legends of that league, a four-time All-Star who averaged 17.4 points a game for his career (with three seasons above 20 per game) while shooting a good for that era 46.9 percent. He was tough to guard and had a deadly jumper.

He is part of the new class of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame going in this week, so it seemed a good time to check out his highlights.

    If Roger Brown had played for the Knicks in the NBA, he’d be considered one of the all-time greats in basketball history. But since he played in Indy in the ABA, he is mostly unknown.

      Your comment scores as a complete and abject failure in terms of originality.

      Pathetic.

    He had some great matchups with Dr. J and other skill forwards that made of the ABA in his time. I used to see him play my ABA Nets.Silky smooth
