Many of college basketball's top scorers have difficulty generating offensive production in the NBA, but Pete Maravich electrified the pro ranks just as he had in college. In ten NBA seasons, Maravich scored 15,948 points in 658 games for a 24.2 points per game average. "Pistol Pete" led the NBA in scoring in 1976-77 with a career-high 31.1 ppg and was second in 1973-74, third in 1975-76, fifth in 1972-73, and eighth in 1970-71. The ball is the game ball from when Maravich scored his 10,000th career NBA point on February 26, 1976 while playing for the New Orleans Jazz. The Wilson Official NBA ball is stamped with the signature of then-commissioner Lawrence F. O'Brien and the team name "Jazz" is stamped on an adjacent panel, both in black. Two stars have been drawn in black marker on either side of the "Wilson Official NBA" black stamping. One of the ball's panels has been painted white and on it "Pete Maravich 10,000 Points Feb. 26, 1976" has been written in black marker. This exact ball is pictured on page 81, Maravich's page, of the book "The NBA at Fifty." The ball comes to us directly from Jackie Maravich and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from her.
