Netolicky was an All-American selection at Drake University in the 1960s before being drafted by the NBA's San Diego Rockets in 1967. However, he never played for the Rockets, joining the ABA's Indiana Pacers instead. A four-time ABA All-Star and two-time ABA Champion, Netolicky was a well-rounded player who could rebound, defend, and shoot the ball equally well. Indeed, Jim O'Brien of The Sporting News once claimed that Netolicky was the "smoothest shooting big man in the ABA" [1]. He was also a major fan favorite, and he was well-known for his advocacy of mod lifestyle and his exotic pets (including a lion and an ocelot). One sportswriter called him the "Broadway Joe Namath of the ABA", since he had become a veritable sex symbol to many of Indiana's female fans [2]. Besides the Pacers, Netolicky briefly played for the Dallas Chaparrals and San Antonio Spurs, and he retired in 1976 with 9,876 career points and 5,518 career rebounds.
