WICHITA, Kan. – Dave Stallworth, an All American Shocker basketball player in the early and mid sixties is dead. He was 75 years old.
Stallworth was one of the NBA giants of his time and has been recognized by the NBA and others in different ways. This includes scholarships in his name to bright talents.
David A. Stallworth was born on 20 December 1941. He played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for eight seasons and was a member of the New York Knicks’ 1969–70 championship-winning team.
It was some thirty eight years ago, when the 6.7 foot tall player became a charter inductee into the Shocker Hall of Fame and, in 1997, a charter member of the Missouri Valley Conference Hall of Fame, says a report in the KSN. He scored a total of 95 points in his last two games before his eligibility expired in January of 1965. Stallworth was the first Shocker to have his jersey retired by WSU.
Dave Stallworth cause of his death is yet to be announced. Dave Stallworth funeral service details will be posted as and when become available.
Reports suggest that Stallworth was employed by Boeing in Wichita. At Boeing plant he made many friends, including CEOs and executives. “People don’t know what kind of condition I’m in, so it doesn’t bother me when they ask. Like I said, I’m OK,” he told The Wichita Eagle in 2013.
