We Reminisce: John Paxson

10.16.09 8 years ago 12 Comments

These days, John Paxson is mostly known for his front office work with the Chicago Bulls as former General Manager the previous six seasons and current Vice Pres. of Basketball Operations. But the sharpshooter from Dayton, Ohio is one of the best pure shooters to come of his generation.

He was Michael and Scottie‘s right hand man during their first three-peat. His greatest on-court moment is by far his game winning shot against Phoenix in the ’93 NBA Finals. He may have averaged a mild 7.2 points and 3.6 helpers during his 11 year career, but his contribution to basketball and the Bulls organization runs deep. Guy shot 46 percent from deep in ’92 and was the most underrated piece of the Bulls first three-peat.
