BIOGRAPHY

Rickey Green (born August 18, 1954) is an American retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Green, a 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m) and 170 lb (77 kg) point guard, led Chicago’s Hirsch High School to the 1973 IHSA Class AA State championship. He then played college basketball at Vincennes University and the University of Michigan; at the latter school, his team lost to the undefeated Big Ten Conference rival Indiana Hoosiers in the championship game of the 1976 NCAA Tournament.

Green was selected with the 16th pick in the 1977 NBA draft, and competed in 14 seasons, playing for the Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons, Utah Jazz, Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, and Boston Celtics.

His highlight season was in 1982–83 with the Utah Jazz, when he averaged 14.3 points, 8.9 assists and 2.82 steals per game, and represented them the following year in the 1984 NBA All-Star Game. He retired in 1992 with NBA career totals of 8,870 points and 5,221 assists in 946 games.

In 1982, as a member of the Jazz, Green scored the five millionth point in NBA history.
