Stanner Hall of Fame

Smith, Kenny

Kenny Smith was one of Jack Curran's guys. A leader, "a gopher," and an all-time great, Smith's cherished years with Curran set him up for what would be a wonderful professional playing career. At North Carolina, Smith established the assists record with 768, including 86 assists in NCAA Tournament play. In 1988, Smith was named a member of the NBA All Rookie Team after averaging 13.8 points and 7.1 assists per game with the Sacramento Kings. Later with the Houston Rockets, Smith scored a career-high 41 points against the LA Lakers on December 26, 1993. The highlight of his career, however, was still to come. Fulfilling a life-long dream, Smith captured the NBA title with the Rockets not once, but twice, cutting the net in consecutive seasons in 1994 and 1995. In all, Smith played nine seasons in the NBA for the Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks. He is Houston's all-time leader in three-point field goal percentage at .407, and holds the best field goal percentage of all NBA guards for the 1992-93 season. He is the only Stanner to ever win the NBA championship. Today, Kenny "The Jet" Smith is an Emmy award winning NBA studio analyst and host, most recently working with Turner Sports and CBS.
