Chuck Share - info

Chuck Share was the first pick in the 1950 NBA Draft (the first "NBA Draft") so he will always have a place in NBA history, plus he was traded immediately by the Celtics for Bill Sharman, so he has connection to the Celtics dynasty that way, and also because he was a captain of the 1957-58 Hawks, who defeated the Celtics to interrupt their long run of titles.

Share was in the top 10 in the league in PER and WS/48 for three seasons during the middle of his career.  By the 1957-58 finals, however, he was a part time player, averaging under 20 minutes in the finals.

He died this summer at age 85.  RIP, Chuck Share, one of the 10 greatest statistical players never to make an all-star team.  Gone, but no longer forgotten, at least here!
