81. Fred Brown

“Downtown” Fred Brown really was the epitome of instant offense off the bench.  A true legend in Seattle, Brown played his entire career scoring almost 15,000 points mostly with long range bombs hence the aforementioned nickname.  Captain of the 79 team that won the title, Brown led the league in three point shooting percentage in 1980, the first year of the new rule.  Unfortunately, this rule was way into his career because Freddy used to launch the rock from anywhere.  If the three point line were in effect during Downtown’s career he may have led the league in scoring a few years; he was that good from long distance.
