Dale Ellis might not be as familiar to today's fans as other top guards of his era. But at the height of his career, with the Seattle Supersonics, Milwaukee Bucks and San Antonio Spurs, Ellis was an elite shooter that excelled coming off screens - the Ray Allen of his era.

Ellis holds the all-time record for minutes played in a single game - 69 - in a five-overtime game between his Sonics and the Miwaukee Bucks on November 9, 1989.
