elegant. While he did not possess the physical
strength of his contemporaries Dominique Wilkins
and James Worthy, he relied more on his technique
and his finesse. These skills allowed him to place
11th on the NBA all-time scoring list, as of July
2005. Besides, he has the distinction of being the
basketball player having scored the most points in
the 80's.

the assistant coach (sport)|coaches for the
Toronto Raptors.
