Mel Daniels, all-time ABA rebounder, passed away


Mel Daniels, one of the best players in the 70s, died Friday at age 71 in Sheridan, near Indianapolis. Daniels, a 6'9" center, has gone down in history as the best rebounder of the defunct ABA (American Basketball Association), the competition who lived with the NBA between 1967 and 1976.

Previously, he was Rookie of the Year with the Minnesota Muskies in 1967-68, after which he was traded to the Pacers. Daniels will always be in the books as the leader of the ABA in total rebounds (9,494) and rebounds per game average (15.1). All Star Game Seven Games of the ABA and was MVP in two of them (1969 and 1971) and the number 34 is one of four retired by the Pacers.

Daniels briefly played for the NBA's New York Nets in the 1976-77 season.

After retiring as a player Mel Daniels joined the technical staff of Indiana State, which would lead to a future crack as Larry Bird. In 1986 he would join the Pacers, where he became Director of Sports Personnel until October 2009.
