Jumping Joe Fulks, born in Kentucky, arguably the first of the high scoring forwards. During the brief days of the BAA ( Basketball Assoc. of America ) from 1946 to 1950, was considered it's greatest offensive player, leading the league in scoring. He averaged 24 points per game at a time when, before the 24-second clock, games rarely scored over 70 points. The 6'5" Fulks was known for his athletic drives to the basket but was also a talented shooter. Joined the BAA's Philadelphia Warriors in his mid-late 20's, was past his prime when the NBA arrived and is therefore a forgotten legend to many. Played college ball at Murray State, was one of the first enshrinees in the Basketball Hall of Fame. His Warriors won the BAA title in 1947.
