Robert Pack

(age 45)

The former Portland Trail Blazers guard was born on this day in New Orleans.

Pack played for the Blazers in 1991-92, when they went 57-25 in the regular season and reached the NBA finals, losing in six games to the Chicago Bulls.

Pack, acquired as a free agent, averaged 4.6 points and 1.9 assists in 12.4 minutes per game. The former USC Trojan, 6-2, shot .423 from the field, going 0 of 10 on 3-pointers.

The Blazers traded him after the '92 season for a second-round draft pick (Kevin Thompson).
