From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Alex English (born January 5, 1954 in Columbia, South Carolina) is a former University of South Carolina and Denver Nuggets basketball player. He was a top scorer in the NBA throughout the decade of the 1980s, averaging 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 vast majority of his career with the Nuggets, but also played briefly with the Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks.

English's style has been described as smooth and elegant. While he did not possess the physical strength of his contemporaries Dominique Wilkins and James Worthy, he relied more on his technique and his finesse. These skills allowed him to place 11th on the NBA all-time scoring list, as of July 2005. Besides, he has the distinction of being the basketball player having scored the most points in the 80'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.
