As early as his high school playing days, and Adrian Dantley appearance on the hardwood led to a successful campaign. Dantley played for the noted high school basketball powerhouse DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, and learned the game from legendary basketball coach Morgan Wootten.
Everything Dantley learned in high school helped him become one of the most successful players in Notre Dame basketball history. Dantley is currently second on the Notre Dame all time scoring list with 2,223 career points, and, in 1976, he was name the National Player of the Year.
With such successful high school and college careers, it was only natural for Dantley to have success as a professional. He was the NBA rookie of the year in 1977. However, to this day, Dantley is the only rookie of the year recipient in any major American sport to be traded after his first year. In fact, the first three years of his NBA career saw Dantley bouncing around the league until 1979 brought the first Adrian Dantley appearance to the Utah Jazz.
Although Dantley wouldn’t finish his career in Utah, he would play seven successful seasons there (six of which included All-Star appearances), and the Utah Jazz would eventually retire his #4 jersey.
