Biography

Bobby Jones played college ball at the University of North Carolina. He was a star in college as well as high jumping on the track team, before being drafted in the first round in 1973 by the ABA and again in the first round by the NBA in 1974. He opted for the NBA and thru a series of complicated trades started his pro career with the Denver Nuggets. He played five seasons in Denver, and then eight season with the Philadelphia 76ers. He played in four NBA All-Star games. He finished his career with an 11.5 ppg average, but was primarily known as a defensive stalwart. Eight times he was named to the NBA first-team All-Defensive team. Jones accomplished all this despite playing with asthma and a mild form of epilepsy, both of which required him to take medication throughout his career.
