McFarlane - NBA Legends - Pete Maravich
Who's the best player in the history of college basketball? "Pistol" Pete Maravich owns three of the five best yearly scoring averages in NCAA history and likely would have more if he had been allowed to play with Louisiana State's varsity his freshman year. Maravich played 10 years in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks, the New Orleans/Utah Jazz and the Boston Celtics. He led the league in scoring in 1977 and played on five straight NBA All-Star teams but his legend is strongest in the Southeast Conference, where "Pistol Pete" left crowds cheering, defenses failing and records falling.
