Known for his sweet outside shot, “Downtown” Freddie Brown was a productive Shooting Guard for thirteen seasons, all of which were with the Seattle SuperSonics. Brown would be one of the first true beneficiaries of the three point line as he was the first leader of three point percentage when the rule was instituted in the 1979-80 season. The season before, Brown (though coming off of the bench) captained the Sonics to their only NBA Title. He would average over 20 Points per Game twice and represented Seattle in the 1976 All Star Game.
While he no longer holds these records, Brown would retire as the all-time franchise leader in Games Played, Points, Field Goals and Free Throws. To honor Brown, his number 32 was retired in 1986.
