Spoon had a smooth high percentage jump shot from the corners. If they had a 3 point line back then his 20.9 Illinois career scoring average would have been even higher. Spoon averaged a double double with 20.9 pts 11.3 rebounds per game. Not bad for a 6'7" SF. Drafted 13th and made all NBA rookie team. Died way too early.
