Dolph Schayes was most influential figures in NBA history  发帖心情 Post By:2015-12-11 16:37:04

 
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Hall of Famer Dolph Schayes, a 12-time http://www.officialtimberwolvesshop.com/authentic-32-karlanthony-towns-jersey.html All-Star who refined the big man's role in the infancy of the National Basketball Association, has died. He was 87.

Schayes was diagnosed with terminal cancer six months ago and died Thursday after being stricken with a severe infection, his son Danny Schayes said.Dolph Schayes was the franchise player for the Syracuse Nationals from 1948-1963 and was voted one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history. He revolutionized the post position, always in perpetual motion instead of just planting himself in the paint.

"Dolph Schayes was one of the most influential figures in NBA history," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday in a statement. "He helped the NBA grow from its earliest days, emerging as one of the game's first stars and displaying the kind of passion for competition and commitment to excellence that has come to define our league.

"Dolph was an NBA champion, a Hall of Fame DeMarcus Cousins Youth Jersey player and a distinguished NBA coach and executive, as well as a proud father who relished the success of his four children, including the NBA career of his son Danny. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Schayes family during this difficult time."

As a 16-year-old freshman center, Schayes led New York University to the NCAA Final Four. He played his entire 16-season career with the Syracuse franchise, scoring 18,438 points and snaring 11,256 rebounds from 1949-64.

The 6-foot-8 Schayes was a seminal figure in the game. With a deadly two-handed, high-arcing set shot that he stubbornly used well into the era of the jump shot, he helped redefine the big man in the NBA.
Schayes grew up in the Bronx during the Great Depression and delivered laundry for cash. He honed his game in the schoolyards of Junior High 79 and DeWitt Clinton High School.

"When we played basketball I did everything. I passed, I dribbled, I played outside," said Schayes, who was 6-5 at age 11.

The New York Knicks chose Schayes fourth http://www.officialnuggetsshop.com/authentic-8-danilo-gallinari-jersey.html in the 1948 Basketball Association of America draft and the Tri-Cities Blackhawks picked him first in the National Basketball League draft before trading his rights to Syracuse.

After winning NBA rookie of the year honors in 1949, Schayes led the Nationals in scoring for 12 straight seasons and helped lead the team to its lone NBA title in 1955, becoming the first player in NBA history to score 15,000 points.
"Dolph is a legendary figure in Syracuse," said Jim Boeheim, longtime coach of the Syracuse Orange. "He was an all-time great, great player. His camp had a big influence on me."

When the Nationals moved to Steve Nash Gold Jersey Philadelphia in 1963, Schayes was named player-coach of the 76ers. He retired as a player after the season, but stayed on as coach for three more seasons and was named NBA coach of the year in 1966 with Wilt Chamberlain, Hal Greer and Billy Cunningham.
