  • And early he went, as Kerr was the sixth overall pick of his draft class, drafted by the Syracuse Nationals. Kerr had a great career, and was a personality as a commentator. He also coached for a few years, but was prematurely force to resign after leading the Phoenix Suns through some bad seasons.

    As a player, he had a great career. In his inaugural season, the Nationals won a title and he was already averaging double digit points per game. Eight out of his twelve seasons played he averaged a double-double with points and rebounds. He neared 15 rebounds per game in 1962, and he was a dominant force in the paint.

    He was a part of the relocation of the Nationals, when they moved to Philadelphia and became the 76ers, as they are today. He only spent two seasons as a Sixer before he was traded to the Baltimore Bullets, but will forever be known as a National/Sixer, due to the 11 seasons he spent with the team.

    He was an All Star three different times with the Nationals.
