Alex English

Biography:Alex English (born January 5, 1954 in Columbia, South Carolina), is a former University of South Carolina and Denver Nuggets basketball forward. He averaged 21.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. He was named to seven NBA All-Star teams, his #2 jersey was retired by the Nuggets, and he was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

English spent the majority of his career with the Nuggets, but also played briefly with the Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks. He was drafted in 1976 by the Bucks, and was part of a rookie class that included Hall of Famer Robert Parish.

English's style has been described as smooth and elegant. Not possessing the physical strength of his contemporaries such as Dominique Wilkins and James Worthy, English instead relied on technique and finesse. These skills allowed him to place 11th on the NBA all-time scoring list as of July 2005 with 25,613 points. He was the first player ever to string together eight straight 2,000-point seasons. He has the distinction of being the top scorer in the 1980's.

In June 2004, English was hired to become the director of player development, as well as one of the assistant coaches for the Toronto Raptors.

Alex English has dabbled in acting. His debut came in the 1987 motion picture Amazing Grace and Chuck, playing a fictitious Boston Celtics star named "Amazing" Grace Smith. He has also had roles in the television series Midnight Caller 1989 and played the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Eddie 1996. To date, his last role was as "The Premiere" in 1997's The Definite Maybe.
