Brad Davis

Basketball ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Putting Brad Davisí basketball career in capsule form is a difficult task. After all, some 20 years of excellence require a lot of space. At Monaca High School, Brad concluded his scholastic days as a first team All Stater and in his senior season averaged 27 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, and shot 58 percent from the field and 81 percent from the foul line. Brad set a Midland record for all time leading scoring (later broken by Bruce Fleming). Bead was chosen MVP at both the Roundball Classic and Quigley Classic and was selected to play for the US team at a Kentucky Derby All Star game. Brad spent the next three years at Maryland, starting all three seasons. After his junior year, he applied for the NBA draft and was taken by the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round. However, Bradís professional basketball career got off to a shaky start: he played for four different teams in his first three years and even saw action in such basketball hotbeds of Alaska and Montana. In 1980 Brad signed with the Dallas Mavericks and for the next 12 years was a fixture both as a player and for his considerable work with charities. Brad set several club records, including playing 246 consecutive games. He also set an NBA record for guards with his 57.2 percent shooting percentage in the 1981-1982 season and that year also rated in the Top Ten in three different statistical categories. Bradís intensity was highly popular with Mavericks fans: he was named Most Popular Maverick five years in a row. When he retired in 1992, Brad became the first player in franchise history to have his number retired.
