He was at his best with the Nets though. Athletic with skill, good scorer, great rebounder, really good defensive player, one of the hardest workers in basketball, Buck would get the job done, he was an intimidator also. With the Blazers he was more for rebounding and defense. One of the greatest PFs ever that doesn't get enough recognition.

Buck definitely seems to be readily forgotten. I wasn't familiar with the NBA until he was a role playing member of the Portland Trail Blazers, so that's kind of how I always used to think of him. I've learned over the years he used to be a lot more than someone filling a role though. Still, as I was recently reading a novel on the Pistons' 1989 championship run, it was still strange to hear the author mentioning how "NBA star" Buck Williams was on the trading block.

I was going to post this. The slow motion replay from the baseline makes that jam look extra legit.

That's more than Dennis Rodman, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Charlse Barkley combined. :O

99.5 Rebounds per game for his career, half a rebound shy of 100.

It's ok. You should have kept it at 130000.

I remember Buck Williams playing for Knicks. He was very built.

Sure everybody wants a Pettit, KG, Duncan, Mailman, Barkley, Hayes, Love or McHale at PF. Guys who do the dirty work duties of PF's AND get u 25-30 points a night on top of it. Or u may want an offensive juggernaut like Dirk. But u can't always find those kind of guys. So after that I want a guy like Buck Williams. A guy who's an elite rebounder and defender, amongst the best in the L at both. But Buck could also get u 18 points a night. If Buck was in a situation like Rodman was getting mulitple rings, Buck might have had an outside shot at the HOF.

Oh heck yeah! The brother had the cool name, Buck. With a name like that and a game to match, you know cats did not want any part of this brother. I just remember him having a quiet game. You could watch a Nets game, whenever they were on back in the day or a Blazer game, and get the stats at the end of the game. Buck would have something like 15 boards and 14 pts, all during the flow of the game. One of the most under appreciated legends of the game. I wonder what he is doing now. Probably lifting weights with the grandkids

He and Cleveland's Lonnie Shelton (another noted NBA tough guy) must have had some personal beef in the early '80s, because they had at least one fight every time they played each other--in February 1984, they had one that went into the stands and both got suspended for it, back when the league rarely suspended players for fighting.

Williams and Rick Mahorn also went at it a couple of times.
