Wow Factor of this Jersey: 7.5 out 0f 10. Sean Elliott is the third best player from the Spurs David Robinson/early Tim Duncan era so the odds of seeing this jersey, in Chicago none the less, are about as good as Mark Sanchez winning a passing title. Also, this jersey is signed. That’s extra bonus points.
Did you know…that Kenny Lofton was the 6th man on the Arizona Wildcats team that Sean Elliott was the star of that went to the Final Four in 1988.
Sean Elliott, who’s nickname was Ninja (no clue), was a solid player in the NBA. He averaged 14 ppg for his career and topped out at 20 ppg during the 95′-96′ season with the Spurs. That’s impressive, but not as impressive as the trade that he was involved in in the Summer of 94′. The Pistons sent Elliott back to the Spurs for Bill Curley and a second round pick who became Charles O’Bannon. No, not Ed O’Bannon, his less talented brother. Fantastic!
Elliott’s most memorable game is without a doubt the “Memorial Day Miracle” in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals vs the Portland Trail Blazers. This shot will go down as one of the greatest in Spurs history.

With leading scorer Manu Ginobili out for two months, the San Antonio Spurs will need plenty of help from their other stars. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have the role players pitch in as well. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan put up their typical solid numbers Wednesday night, while reserves T.J. Ford and Danny Green played big roles against Golden State.
