Dave Cowens
Dave Cowens was born October 25, 1948, in Newport, Kentucky and is a retired basketball player and NBA head coach. At 6'9", he played the center position. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1991. He is currently an assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons. Despite some critics who felt Cowens was too small to play center, Cowens was selected as the fourth overall pick by the Boston Celtics during the 1970 NBA Draft, largely at the recommendation of former Celtics center Bill Russell. During his rookie year, Cowens averaged 17.0 points per game and 15.0 rebounds per game, and shared the NBA's Rookie of the Year honors with Portland's Geoff Petrie. He also led the league in personal fouls that same year. During his NBA career, Cowens averaged 17.6 points and 13.6 rebounds per game, was selected to seven All-Star Games, was named to the All-NBA Second Team three times, and was named to the All-NBA Defensive First Team in 1976 and All-NBA Defensive Second Team in 1973 and 1980. He was a member of the Celtics' 1974 and 1976 NBA Championship teams. Cowens' playing credo was all-out intensity at both ends of the court, a style that never wavered during his 11-year NBA career. He played 10 seasons for the Boston Celtics as well as one for the Milwaukee Bucks. As a testament to his all-around ability, Cowens is one of only fourplayers (Scottie Pippen, Kevin Garnett and LeBron James are the others) to lead his team in all five major statistical categories for a season: points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals. He accomplished the feat in the 1977-78 season.
