|Personal Fact of Pete Maravich|
Pete Maravich was a legendary American basketball player who gave the game a new dimension. Before even turning professional, Maravich created history in his college career by scoring 3, 667 points with an average of 44.2 points per game, thus becoming the all-time leading NCAA Division I scorer. He made his entry into professional basketball with the Atlanta Hawks and later played for New Orleans Jazz and Utah Jazz. In his ten-year career in the NBA, Maravich played in 658 games, averaging 24.2 points and 5.4 assists per contest.
Interestingly, while at school he earned the moniker Pistol due to his unique habit of shooting the ball from his side that gave an impression of him holding a revolver, which stayed with him for life. His flashy dribbling technique and smooth passing skills was cheered by the crowd who waited for him to basket the ball or bring upon a ravishing assist that resulted in nothing but the ball in the net.
It was due to these features that he became one of the youngest players ever to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
