Early life

Maravich was born in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, a small steel town in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. Maravich amazed his family and friends with his basketball abilities from an early age. His father Press Maravich, a former professional player turned coach, showed Pete the fundamentals starting when Pete was seven years old. Maravich would obsessively spend hours practicing ball control tricks, passes, head fakes, and long range shots. The elder Maravich required his son to make 100 shots from the half-court line in their driveway every night after supper before he would be allowed to go to bed. Maravich claimed he often made 99 straight before deliberately missing the next several shots just so he could continue playing ball outside. Maravich's father claims that at the age of 3 the younger Maravich once succeeded in making 500 consecutive free throws one evening after school, stopping only when it became too dark to see the rim, illuminated only by the elder Maravich's flashlight. Pete got his nickname, "the Pistol," in elementary school. He would shoot the ball from the side like he was holding a shotgun. Since he wasn't strong enough to shoot it from the front someone from a newspaper said "He shoots like he's holding a pistol."[citation needed] Aliquippa is a city in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, United States and is part of the Pittsburgh Metro Area. ... Beaver County is a county located in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. ...

College

When he took the court for his first freshman game at LSU, a large crowd turned out to see what all the fuss was about. City Baton Rouge, Louisiana Team Colors Purple and gold Head Coach John Brady Home Stadium Pete Maravich Assembly Center League/Conference affiliations NCAA Division I Southeastern Conference Western Division Team History All-Time Record 1329-995 National Championships (1) 1935^ Final Four Appearances (4) 1953, 1981, 1986, 2006 Conference Championships...


In those days, freshman players did not play with the varsity squad. So, after Maravich put up 50 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists on Southeastern Louisiana College,[1] the crowd got up and went home, ignoring the varsity game. And so it would go the rest of the season, as LSU's freshman squad lost only one game, while the varsity team won only three. Southeastern Louisiana University is a state-funded public university that is located in the city of Hammond, Louisiana. ...


Noted for his mop of brown hair and floppy socks, Maravich scored more points in college than any other player in history.[1] In only three years playing for his father Press Maravich at LSU, Maravich scored 3,667 points — 1,138 points in 1968, 1,148 points in 1969 and 1,381 points in 1970 while averaging 43.8, 44.2 and 44.5 points per game. In the process, "Pistol Pete" set 11 NCAA and 34 Southeastern Conference records, as well as every LSU record in points scored, scoring average, field goals attempted and made, and free throws attempted and made, and assists. In his collegiate career, the 6' 5" (1.96 m) guard averaged an incredible 44.2 points per game in 83 contests and led the NCAA in scoring three times. He also set an NCAA record by scoring more than 50 points 28 times. He was named a three-time All-American and still holds many of these records, more than 35 years later. Notably, his 3,667 points don't factor in the 741 he scored his freshman year, or the fact that they played without a three-point line. // December 8 — Fukuoka Marathon, Japan Mens Winner: Bill Adcocks (ENG) 2:10:48 Stock car racing: Cale Yarborough won the Daytona 500 NASCAR Championship - David Pearson Indianapolis 500 - Bobby Unser USAC Racing - Bobby Unser won the season championship Formula One Champion: Graham Hill of Great Britain 24 hours of... // August 16 — Enschede Marathon, Netherlands Mens Winner: Kazuo Matsubara (JPN) 2:19:29 September 21 — European Championships Marathon, Athens, Greece Mens Winner: Ron Hill (ENG) 2:16:48 December 7 — Fukuoka Marathon, Japan Mens Winner: Jerome Drayton (CAN) 2:11:13 Stock car racing: LeeRoy Yarbrough won...

Maravich was a three time first team All-American and was named The Sporting News' player of the year in 1970, and received the USBWA College Player of the Year and Naismith Award as well.

Maravich shone on the court and LSU slowly turned around a lackluster program. The year before he arrived, the varsity posted a 3-20 record. In Pete's senior season, LSU was 20-8 and participated in the NIT, where they were defeated by Marquette 101-79 in the semi-finals. Maravich was also a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon while at LSU.

NBA

After graduating from LSU in 1970, Maravich was the third selection in the first round of that year's NBA player draft[2] and made league history when he signed a $1.6 million contract — one of the highest salaries at the time — with the Atlanta Hawks. He wasted little time becoming a prime time player by averaging 23.2 points per game his rookie season and being named to the NBA All-Rookie Team. After spending four seasons in Atlanta, Maravich was traded to the New Orleans Jazz for 8 players, where he peaked as an NBA showman and superstar. He made the All-NBA First Team in 1976 and 1977 and the All-NBA Second Team in 1973 and 1978. He led the NBA in scoring in the 1976-77 with 31.1 points per game. Prior to the 1979-80 season, Maravich moved with the team to Utah. He was waived by the Jazz on January 18, 1980 and was quickly picked up by the Boston Celtics where he played the rest of the season alongside Larry Bird.[3] Maravich retired in the fall of 1980.

Later life and death

A leg injury during the 1977-78 NBA season started the downward spiral into alcoholism, and signaled the decline of his career. After the injury forced him to leave basketball in the fall of 1980, Maravich became a recluse for two years. Through it all, Maravich said he was searching "for life." He tried the practices of yoga and Hinduism, read Trappist monk Thomas Merton's The Seven Storey Mountain and took an interest in the field of ufology, the study of unidentified flying objects. He also explored vegetarianism and macrobiotics. In 1982, he became a Christian and began traveling the country sharing his new found faith in Jesus Christ.

On January 5, 1988, Pete Maravich collapsed and died, at age 40, of a heart attack[5] just after playing in a pickup basketball game at the First Church of the Nazarene in Pasadena with a group that included Focus on the Family head James Dobson. (Maravich had flown out from his home in Louisiana to tape a segment for Dobson's radio show later that day.)
