Elliott played high school basketball at Cholla High Magnet School in Tucson, Arizona and played college basketball at the University of Arizona, under the tutelage of Lute Olson, and won the Wooden Award after an exceptional senior season. He was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round in 1989. Elliott spent the majority of his career with the Spurs, with the exception of the 1993-94 season, during which he played for the Detroit Pistons. Elliott was an instrumental part of the Spurs' successful NBA title quest in 1999. In Game 2 of the 1999 Western Conference Finals, Sean Elliott of the San Antonio Spurs hit a 21-foot shot against the Portland Trail Blazers which gave the Spurs a one point lead with 9 seconds left. The shot was called "Memorial Day Miracle" because of its improbability. The pass was nearly stolen by Blazer Stacey Augmon, and Elliott caught the ball within an inch of the sideline (narrowly avoiding going out of bounds), and had to stay on his tiptose rather than planting his feet; when he let go of the ball, it just avoided the outstretched arms of six foot ten Blazer Rasheed Wallace.[1] This play shifted the momentum of the series to the Spurs.
