Collier "P. J." Brown Jr. (born October 14, 1969) is a retired American professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m), 239 lb (108 kg; 17.1 st) center/power forward was selected out of Louisiana Tech University by the New Jersey Nets with the 29th overall pick in the 1992 NBA draft, but began his NBA career only in the 1993–94 season. He has been voted into the NBA All-Defensive Second Team three times, in 1997, 1999 and 2001,[1] and won the NBA Sportsmanship Award in 2004.[2] He attended Winnfield Senior High School in Winnfield, Louisiana, where he played for the Winnfield Tigers, and has played professionally for the New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat, Charlotte Hornets, New Orleans Hornets, Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics.

College[edit]

Brown played four years at Louisiana Tech and averaged 10.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in 121 contests. He left Louisiana Tech as the Bulldogs' 2nd all-time leader in blocks with 241, and 5th in rebounds with 1,017.

NBA career[edit]

New Jersey Nets (1993–1996)[edit]

Brown was selected out of Louisiana Tech University with the 29th overall pick in the second round of the 1992 NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets. However, he elected to play in the 1992–1993 HEBA A1 season in his first year out of college and averaged 17.0 points, 13.3 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game for Panionios B.C..

In his first three seasons in the NBA, from 1993 to 1996, he played in 240 regular season games for the New Jersey Nets and increased his starts from 54 games in the 1994 season to 63 in the 1995 season before starting in all 81 games that he appeared in the 1996 campaign. The Nets made the playoffs in 1994, and Brown appeared in 4 first round playoff games as New Jersey was eliminated by the New York Knicks. That season also featured Brown participating in the 1994 Rookie Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend.

In addition to increasing his playing time Brown also increased his scoring average each year, and in the 1996 season he would average a then career high 11.3 points with 6.9 rebounds a game. The Nets however did not reach the post-season in both his second and third year with the team. In the 1996 offseason he would sign as a free agent with the Miami Heat.[3]

Miami Heat (1996–2000)[edit]

Miami had made the playoffs the previous year led by all-star center Alonzo Mourning, point guard Tim Hardaway and head coach Pat Riley, who decided to start Brown for 71 games in the 1996–1997 season. Brown increased his shooting percentage and rebounding, received the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award and was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team as the Heat won a franchise best 61 games and the Atlantic Division Title. Brown's defense and rebounding helped the Heat advance in the playoffs, as they defeated the Orlando Magic in the first round in 5 games and New York Knicks in a grueling 7 games series. He was crucial in the crucial games of the playoffs, scoring 12 points with 14 rebounds in the deciding game against Orlando and 18 points with 12 rebounds in a game 5 win at home against the Knicks. In that game, Brown was attempting to establish rebounding position with Knicks point guard Charlie Ward before lifting and flipping him onto a row of photographers along the baseline, leading to a brawl between the teams. This would result in Brown being suspended for the last two games of the series, along with players from the New York bench who intervened. Despite overcoming New York, the team could not overcome the defending champion Chicago Bulls however, who defeated Miami in 5 games in the franchises' first trip to the Eastern Conference Finals. Brown averaged 9.2 points and 8.8 rebounds in the playoffs.

Brown's production would be nearly identical in the 1997–1998 season, starting in all 74 games in which he appeared as the Heat once again entered the playoffs, but came up short in a five-game first round series loss against New York .

In the lockout shortened 1998–99 season, Brown was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team for the 2nd time in his career and averaged a career high 11.4 points a game. The Heat once again won the Atlantic Division but also were once again defeated in a stunning first round series in 5 games to the 8th seeded Knicks. Brown's role continued in the 1999–2000 season, and the Heat would win in the first round against the Detroit Pistons before facing the Knicks for the fourth straight year. Once again, the Heat would fall to their New York rivals in another long and grueling 7 game series.

Charlotte / New Orleans Hornets (2000–2006)[edit]

On August 1, 2000, Brown, alongside Jamal Mashburn, Otis Thorpe, Tim James and Rodney Buford, was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Eddie Jones, Anthony Mason, Dale Ellis and Ricky Davis.[4] In 2000–01, his first season with the Hornets, Brown was selected to his 3rd NBA All-Defensive Second Team. In 2001–02, he was chosen as the Central Division recipient of the NBA Sportsmanship Award. The Hornets relocated to New Orleans prior to the 2002–03 season, where Brown had his best scoring seasons, averaging 10.6 points per game in 240 regular season games from 2002 to 2005.

During the 2002–03 season, he received the NBA Community Assist Award for the month of September and was again chosen as the Central Division recipient of the NBA Sportsmanship Award, for the 2nd consecutive time. In 2003–04, he was yet again chosen as the Central Division NBA Sportsmanship Award recipient, for the 3rd consecutive season, this time capturing the 2004 NBA Sportsmanship Award.

Prior to the 2006–07 season, Brown had played in 999 regular season games, including 941 starts. By that time, he was one of 26 players in NBA history to have 8,000 points, 7,000 rebounds, 1,000 assists and 1,000 blocks.

Chicago Bulls (2006–2007)[edit]

On July 13, 2006, Brown was traded by the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets along with guard J.R. Smith to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for center Tyson Chandler.[5] He played well as a veteran with the young team, starting the majority of his games, though he scored in meager proportions, and only averaged a career-low of 20.2 minutes per game.

Retirement thoughts[edit]

After the 2006–07 season, Brown did not re-sign with the Bulls and rejected offers from several teams interested in his services, citing he might have been done with his career.[6] He went into semi-retirement while contemplating a possible return, lasting considerably into the 2007–08 season.[7][8]

Boston Celtics (2008)[edit]

On February 27, 2008, after resting for most of the 2007–08 season and weighing his options, Brown signed with the Boston Celtics for the remainder of the season, in order to bolster their front court.[8][9] His decision to come to Boston was strongly aided by a conversation with future teammates Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, who convinced him to sign with the Celtics during the 2008 NBA All-Star Weekend.[10] The San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Hornets were interested in his services, but he wasn't particularly intrigued by the offers, instead choosing the Celtics who tried to convince him to sign throughout most of the season.[11] He made his debut against the Chicago Bulls, his former team, on March 7, 2008.

Brown had an unexpected breakout performance which took place in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on May 18, 2008, when he scored 10 points and pulled down 6 rebounds, hitting all of his four shots and making key contributions in the 4th quarter. He hit a key shot with less than two minutes left in the game as the Celtics went on to win the game 97-92.[12] After the game, he told reporters: "That shot, hey, probably I would say the biggest shot of my career".[13] He also had a strong performance in Game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers on June 5, 2008, playing increased minutes in the first Finals game of his 15-year career en route to a Celtics victory.[14] He retired at the end of that season with a championship.
