Nathaniel "Tiny" Archibald (born September 2, 1948) is an American retired professional basketball player. Nate Archibald_sentence_3

He spent 14 years playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA), most notably with the Cincinnati Royals, Kansas City–Omaha Kings and Boston Celtics. Nate Archibald_sentence_4

In 1991, he was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Nate Archibald_sentence_5

Archibald was a willing passer and an adequate shooter from midrange. Nate Archibald_sentence_6

However, it was his quickness and speed and shiftiness that made him difficult to guard in the open court, as he would regularly drive past defenders on his way to the basket. Nate Archibald_sentence_7

High school and college career Nate Archibald_section_0

Archibald, a playground legend while growing up in a rough-and-tumble neighborhood in the South Bronx borough of New York City, played high school basketball for only one-and-a-half seasons, and was cut from the varsity squad at DeWitt Clinton High School as a sophomore. Nate Archibald_sentence_8

He returned to the team as a junior. Nate Archibald_sentence_9

During his time without basketball, Archibald briefly flirted with dropping out of school after having been largely truant in past years. Nate Archibald_sentence_10

But with the help of two mentors, Floyd Layne and Pablo Robertson, Archibald turned it around. Nate Archibald_sentence_11

Robertson, a former standout at Loyola of Chicago and a Harlem, New York playground impresario, had seen the gifted, mercurial Archibald in action on the playgrounds and convinced the young man's high school coach to re-instate him on the squad. Nate Archibald_sentence_12

Despite playing only in blowouts as a junior, the shy, quiet teen managed to blossom into a high-school star, being named team captain and an All-City selection in 1966. Nate Archibald_sentence_13

Off the court, Archibald began to attend school regularly and worked to improve his poor academic standing, which deterred most colleges from offering him a scholarship. Nate Archibald_sentence_14

To improve his chances of playing major college basketball, Archibald enrolled at Arizona Western College, transferring to the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) the following year. Nate Archibald_sentence_15

He had three standout seasons at El Paso, from 1967 to 1970 under Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins. Nate Archibald_sentence_16

Professional career Nate Archibald_section_1

Cincinnati Royals/Kansas City Kings Nate Archibald_section_2

Archibald was selected in the second round of the 1970 NBA draft (19th pick) by the Cincinnati Royals. Nate Archibald_sentence_17

On November 18, 1972, Archibald recorded 51 points and 14 assists in a 127-117 win over the Houston Rockets. Nate Archibald_sentence_20

In 1972–73 season, Archibald led the NBA in scoring and assists, becoming the only player to win the titles in both categories in the same season. Nate Archibald_sentence_21

(In the 1967–68 season, Oscar Robertson led the NBA in points and assists per game but did not win the titles because they were based on totals rather than averages at the time.) Nate Archibald_sentence_22

His scoring average of 34.0 points per game broke the NBA record for a guard and, as of 2020, is still a record for point guards. Nate Archibald_sentence_23

His 910 assists that season (11.4 assists per game) was also an NBA record at the time, breaking Guy Rodgers' mark of 908. Nate Archibald_sentence_24

He was named the Sporting News NBA MVP that season. Nate Archibald_sentence_25

Archibald played for the Kansas City Kings from 1970 to 1976. Nate Archibald_sentence_26

Buffalo Braves Nate Archibald_section_4

Injured for much of the 1976–77 season, he was traded by the Nets to the Buffalo Braves before the 1977–78 season. Nate Archibald_sentence_28

Archibald tore his achilles tendon and never played a regular-season game for the Braves. Nate Archibald_sentence_29

Boston Celtics Nate Archibald_section_5

Buffalo traded him to the Boston Celtics as part of a 7-player deal before the start of the next season. Nate Archibald_sentence_30

His career at the Celtics started poorly. Nate Archibald_sentence_31

He showed up 20 pounds overweight. Nate Archibald_sentence_32

However, he adjusted and helped guide the Celtics to the best record in the NBA for three consecutive years (1979–1982). Nate Archibald_sentence_33

Archibald won his first and only NBA championship with the Boston Celtics in the 1980–81 season alongside young NBA star Larry Bird. Nate Archibald_sentence_34

In Game 6 of the 1981 NBA Finals, Archibald recorded 13 points and 12 assists as the Celtics closed out the series against the Houston Rockets. Nate Archibald_sentence_35
