General Information
Maurice "Maury" E. King was an American professional basketball player, who played in the National Basketball Association for the Boston Celtics and Chicago Zephyrs, and with the Baltimore Bullets of the Eastern Professional Basketball League and the Kansas City Steers of the American Basketball League. King played collegiately for the Kansas Jayhawks and was the first black starter in Kansas basketball history in 1954. A teammate of Wilt Chamberlain, he scored 11 points in the famous 1957 NCAA Championship game, where the Jayhawks lost to the North Carolina Tar Heels in triple-overtime. The 6 ft 2 in, 195 lb guard was selected out of the University of Kansas by the Boston Celtics with the 48th overall pick in the 6th round of the 1957 NBA Draft. In 1957, King was drafted into the army. When he finished serving his two-year commitment, he joined the Celtics. He played only one game with the Celtics in 1959, before he joined the Baltimore Bullets in the Eastern Professional Basketball League. He then joined the Kansas City Steers of the ABL. In the league's fledgling season, King averaged 7.8 points per game, and led the team with an average of 3.2 assists.
