Hal Greer (born June 26, 1936 in Huntington, West Virginia) is a former professional basketball player.
He played college basketball at Marshall University and is well-known for his time as teammate of Wilt Chamberlain on the Philadelphia 76ers (especially the powerful 1967 team that ended the 8 year championship-winning streak of the Boston Celtics). Greer is usually considered the 3rd best guard of the 1960s, behind Oscar Robertson and Jerry West. Greer played in 10 NBA All-Star Games, was the MVP of the 1968 game, was named to the All-NBA Second team seven times, and scored over 20,000 points during his NBA career. His hometown has honored his success by naming the main artery between the campus/downtown area and the interstate highway 'Hal Greer Blvd.'
Greer is sometimes confused with Hal Lear, another star guard who played alongside Guy Rodgers for Temple University in the mid-1950's.
