Fred Brown      Wisconsin Wikipedia 

Fred Brown attended Lincoln High School and lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was later nicknamed "Downtown Freddie Brown." He attended Southeastern Community College in Burlington, Iowa for his first 2 years in college. He caught the attention of Iowa coach Ralph Miller, where he finished his last 2 seasons of college basketball.

He was a crowd favorite at Iowa, where he finished his senior year in 1971, averaging 27.6 points per game, and was selected by the Kentucky Colonels in the American Basketball Association (ABA) draft and selected 6th overall by the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1971 NBA draft.

Professionally, he played 13 seasons (1971-1984) in the NBA, all with the Seattle SuperSonics. In 1979, Brown was the captain of the 1978-79 World Championship team, and led them to the NBA Finals in the 1977-78 season. Known for his accurate outside shooting, Brown was selected to the 1976 NBA All-Star Game and scored 14,018 points in his career. When he retired in 1984 Brown was the SuperSonics' all-time leader in Games played (963), Points scored (14,018), Field goals (6,006), and Free throws (1,896). His 58-point outburst at Golden State on Mar. 23, 1974 remains the best single game scoring total in franchise history.

Brown was one of the most popular players to don a Sonics uniform. For years, he purchased as many as 200 season tickets, which he would distribute to disadvantaged youth. Brown's #32 SuperSonics jersey was retired November 6, 1986 in honor of his career with the SuperSonics. Mayor Charles Royer proclaimed Feb. 11, 1985, as "Fred Brown Day." Brown continues to reside in the Seattle area and is one of the former players lobbying to bring NBA basketball back to Seattle after the SuperSonics relocated to Oklahoma City in 2008.

Born 8/7/1948 and is 75 years old.
