Pervis Ellison (30pts/18rebs/4blks) vs. Celtics (1991)

The NBA”s Most Improved Player of the 1991-92 season Pervis Ellison almost approaches his career-highs both in points and rebounds against the Boston Celtics. Unfortunately, we never were able to see a fully healthy (damn that coffee table) Ellison after his first three years in the league and a great college career at Louisville, but the man you see in this video averaged 20.0ppg, 11.2rpg, 2.9apg and 2.7bpg for the season.

He probably was a bit too slender and lacked the necessary rugged skills in the post for 90s basketball, however, his soft touch, agility and ability to protect the rim could have translated into a Robert Parish-like career. November 25, 1991.
