Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story

Ted Green is producing a documentary titled "Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story." Roger Brown averaged 17.4 ppg and 6.2 rpg in eight ABA seasons and he increased those numbers to 18.7 ppg and 6.4 rpg in the playoffs while playing a major role in creating the league's greatest dynasty as the Indiana Pacers won three championships in a four year period--but statistics do not even come close to completely capturing Brown's greatness. A beautiful phrase that John Papanek used to describe Julius Erving's brilliance could also be applied to Brown: "You had to see the man and hear the music." I told Brown's story eight years ago and I very much hope that next year the Basketball Hall of Fame's ABA Committee--which has already corrected two huge injustices by selecting Artis Gilmore and Mel Daniels--will finally present Brown an honor that he so richly deserves and is so long overdue.

Here is the trailer from Green's "Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story":
