was one of those players that nobody seems to remember how good he really was. A great scorer in both the ABA and NBA, Scott was also a key member of the 1976 Celtics who won the championship. Scott could do it all; a great ball handler (4.9 assists per game for his career) and solid defender, Scott is best remembered as one of the first big guards in league history. At 6 feet 5, Scott used his size to his advantage and became a matchup that opposing teams found impossible to defend especially in the ABA where one year he averaged 34.6 points per game. Scott is a member of the all-time ABA team even though he only played two seasons there. A 20.7 career scoring average in both leagues, Scott’s chances of getting in really depend on if the committee does start to recognize some of the contributions of the ABA players. Though he wasn't there long, Scott was one of the stars of that league. Larry Scott is also the first African-American scholarship athlete at the University of North Carolina where he starred for three years and was a member of the 1968 Olympic Gold Medal Team.
