Mark Eaton Speaker Profile
Two Time NBA Defensive Player of the Year
Mark Eaton Biography
Mark Eaton was born January 24, 1957 and is a retired American professional basketball player who was a member of the NBA's Utah Jazz from 1982 to 1994, with one NBA All-Star selection in 1989, and two NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards in 1985 and 1989. Though limited offensively, Eaton's 7 ft 4 in (2.24 m) height helped him become one of the best defensive centers in NBA history. Eaton holds the NBA record for most blocks in a season (456) and career average blocked shots per game (3.50).
His entire NBA career was spent with the Utah Jazz. In 875 games, he scored 5,216 points, grabbed 6,939 rebounds, and blocked 3,064 shots. At the time of his retirement, he ranked second all-time in league history in total blocked shots, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's career total of 3,189. Abdul-Jabbar played 1,560 games to Eaton's 875. (However, statistics for blocked shots were not kept until the 1973-74 season, missing the first 4 seasons of Abdul-Jabbar's career.) Eaton is currently the NBA's all-time leader in blocks per game, with a career average of 3.50.
To honor his contributions to the team, the Utah Jazz retired Eaton's number 53 during the 1995–96 regular season.
