The 6-foot-3 combination guard for the Supersonics played all 13 of his pro seasons in Seattle, scoring more than 14,000 career points and twice averaging more than 20 points-per-game. Brown was a key member on some pretty outstanding Sonics teams, helping the franchise to the NBA championship in 1979. He made the All-Star team in 1976 but was removed from the starting lineup just a couple years later, right as the Sonics geared up for their championship season. “Downtown” Freddie Brown was the team’s captain despite coming off the bench, averaging 14.0 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.5 steals-per-game that season. His best seasons came before the advent of the Sixth Man of the Year Award, or else you can be certain he would have pretty much run away with the trophy that season.
