We Like Obscure NBA Players: Steve Scheffler

Steve Scheffler was a tough big man who played in the NBA for 7 seasons. His stats were not impressive but his work ethic was. Let's take a look back at Scheffler's career.
Scheffler attended Purdue University and saw very little playing time during his freshman year. The following season, in 1987, his role on the team increased as well as his production as he shot nearly 71% from the field. He helped lead the team to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament that year.
His improvement didn't stop there, he continued to work on his defense and rebounding and was a force to be reckoned with in the post:
He averaged 16.8 points and 8.1 rebounds per game while shooting 70% from the field and 80% from the line. There was hardly a player in college basketball more effective than Scheffler and his efforts earned him Big Ten Player of the Year honors. He was also proud to have completed all four years of college and believed in getting an education:
"If a player goes off to the NBA, it's not good for the individual because he's not getting an education"
Scheffler moved onto the NBA the following season as he was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets in the 2nd round of the 1990 NBA draft. Much like his freshman year at Purdue, he didn't see much playing time in his rookie season with the Hornets. He never played more than 17 minutes in a game and never scored more than 6 points but still shot over 50% from the field.
The Hornets and Scheffler parted ways after his rookie season, and perhaps they felt that he wasn't the same player they had hoped for after seeing his summer league success.
He had brief stints with the Kings and Nuggets, signing 10-day contracts with both teams before finally finding a home in Seattle during the 1992-93 season.
Scheffler was able to help out in the playoffs, suiting up for 9 games and gained valuable playoff experience.
Over the next few seasons, Scheffler never played more than 21 minutes in a single game and averaged around 2 points and 1 rebound per game but he was a fan favorite. For the Sonics' 35th anniversary, a poll conducted found that Scheffler was their favorite 12th man.
His NBA career came to an end in 1997 after playing only 7 games with the Sonics during the 1996-97 season. He was loved by the fans and was a part of the Sonics team that fell to the greatest team of all-time, record-wise, the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls in the NBA finals.
Scheffler is now the founder of K.S. Specialties Inc. which works with Amazon.com to market their grocery products. He also stays connected to the game of basketball by watching and through public speaking.
Scheffler definitely sets a good example for players who hope to make the NBA. He worked hard during his time in the NBA but also made sure to have a plan for when his basketball playing days were done. We definitely won't forget him or his Seattle Supersonics.
