Adrian Dantley played 15 seasons in the NBA, including seven as a member of the Utah Jazz. He was a six-time All-Star was inducted into the Hall of Famer in 2008.
In high school, Dantley attended basketball powerhouse DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland where he played under legendary basketball coach Morgan Wootten.
Collegiately, Dantley was a forward at Notre Dame from 1973-76. He was a consensus first team All-American in 1974-75 and 1975-76 and was named as the 1976 National Player of the Year. He ranks second on the Notre Dame career scoring list with 2,223 points and holds the school record for free throws made (615) and free throws attempted (769). As a freshman, he played an important role in one of the biggest games in college basketball history, Notre Dame's stunning 1973 upset over UCLA to end the Bruins’ record 88-game winning streak.
Dantley led Notre Dame in scoring in 1974-75 (30.4 points per game) and 1975–76 (28.6 points per game), while also leading the team in rebounding those two seasons with marks of 10.2 and 10.1 rebounds per game, respectively. He was also the leading scorer on the 1976 US Olympic team that captured the gold medal in Montreal.
In the 1976 NBA draft, Dantley was drafted sixth overall by the Buffalo Braves. He became the third Buffalo player in five years to receive the NBA Rookie of the Year Award when he won it after the 1977 season. He was traded from Buffalo to the Indiana Pacers before the 1978 season and Indiana traded him after 23 games to the Los Angeles Lakers. He stayed with the Lakers through the following season before being traded again, this time to the Utah Jazz.
In Utah, Dantley established his reputation as a prolific scorer, twice leading the league in scoring in 1981 and 1984. He averaged over 30 points per game each season between 1981 and 1984, though he missed 60 games in 1983 after tearing ligaments in his right wrist. In his seven years with the Jazz, Dantley picked up all six of his All-Star appearances and two All-NBA second-team honors.
Utah traded Dantley to the Detroit Pistons after the 1986 season. He was still an effective scorer but did not get as many shots with Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Vinnie Johnson and Bill Laimbeer all averaging at least 10 points per game. Midway through the 1989 season Detroit traded Dantley to the Dallas Mavericks for Mark Aguirre. Dantley played two more seasons in the NBA before retiring after a 10-game stint with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1991.
Dantley finished his career with an average of 24.3 points per game. He scored his points with a mix of flat-footed mid-range jump shots, high-percentage opportunities close to the basket and frequent trips to the free throw line. For his career, he shot .540 from the floor—16th in NBA history—and .818 from the free throw line. He led the league in free throws six times and ranks sixth all-time in that category. He shares the record (with Wilt Chamberlain) for most free throws made in a regular-season NBA game with 28. Utah retired Dantley's uniform number (#4) on April 11, 2007.
Dantley currently is an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets.
