It's a little odd that Dantley was such a journeyman, given how proficiently he could score (a 24.3 career points per game average). He was an exceedingly efficient shooter, and his lifetime .540 percentage is the 16th-best in NBA history, and his .818 free throw percentage also is a significantly high mark. He was at his best as a member of the Utah Jazz, where over a four season stretch beginning in 1980-81 he averaged over 30 points per game each season, and teamed with a couple young upstarts named Malone and Stockton in his final year in Utah. After being shipped to Detroit, his numbers dwindled as Dantley forced to accept a smaller role with the well-balanced Pistons.
