Pro Basketball

In 1967 the Cincinnati Royals (now the Sacramento Kings) selected Dampier in the fourth round of the NBA Draft. Dampier eventually signed with the Kentucky Colonels of the fledgling ABA and teamed with Darel Carrier to form the most explosive backcourt duo in the league. In each of the ABA's first three seasons, both Dampier and Carrier averaged at least 20 points per game, taking full advantage of the ABA's use of the three-point field goal. In the league's second season (1968-69), the duo combined for 324 three-point field goals, with Dampier making 199. The following year, Dampier fell one short of his own three-point field goal record. (The 199 stood as a professional basketball record, ABA or NBA, until John Starks made 217 during the 1994-95 season. Dennis Scott broke that record a year later with 267; that record still stands today.) Dampier utilized the three-point field goal to its fullest; at the conclusion of the ABA's history he made a career-record 794. He also finished #1 all-time in the ABA in points scored (13726), assists (4044) and minutes played (27770). During the 1970-71 season, he hit 57 consecutive free throws for what was then a pro record (ABA or NBA). Seven times, he was named an ABA All-Star. He was named a unanimous choice for the ABA Top 30 team. He played on the Colonels’ 1975 ABA Championship team, which featured another ex-Kentucky Wildcat, Dan Issel, as well as 7-2 center Artis Gilmore.
