Default Elvin Hayes (29pts/13rebs) vs Warriors (1975 Finals)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMMKJKnF3x4

Elvin Hayes was a 6 ft 9 Center / Power forward. In his career with the San Diego/Houston Rockets and the Baltimore/Capital/Washington Bullets, Hayes played 1,303 games over 16 seasons, registering 27,313 points (eighth all-time) and 16,279 rebounds (fourth all-time). Hayes never missed more than two games in any of his 16 seasons in the NBA. In addition to his 1968 scoring title, he led the NBA in rebounding in 1970 and 1974. Hayes played in twelve straight NBA All-Star Games from 1969 to 1980.

Hayes was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team during the 1996--97 NBA season and was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990. He has boycotted the Hall of Fame since 1990 and refuses to return until Guy Lewis, his coach at the University of Houston, is admitted.

Thanks for the link. 1970's basketball is a bit murky for me. I know a lot of the names, but I don't know a lot of the games, so I appreciate when I get an opportunity to get a solid feel for what someone like Elvin Hayes really played like. Seems like he had a soft and reliable touch out to 15 feet at least.

Through an in depth sports story his final year in the NCAA it is revealed Elvin Hayes w/o shoes height was 6-9.5" and his wingspan was 7-2, so today he'd likely be known as a "6-11" big man. He said in that same article "I'd list 6-8 if I thought I could get away with it", so I guess he was trying to be sneaky with a deceptively low list height.

Elvin Hayes is the answer to a great trivia question: What NBA player played in all star games in both the 60s and the 80s?
