Former NBA All-Star works out with N. Fulton campers

In the 1980s and 90s, Dale Ellis was one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA.

The Marietta native shot better than 40 percent from behind the arc in 10 of his 17 seasons as a professional.

On Monday, the 57-year-old dusted off his shooting skills and showed it off to some campers in Milton looking to learn a thing or two about putting a basketball through the net from deep range. Ellis worked with youths as part of a camp put on by “Halftime Sports” — a faith-based sports marketing company based in Alpharetta that focuses on youth tournaments and camps.

Ellis, who was an NBA All-Star in 1989, told the campers about his time in the pros and worked with them on shooting mechanics. The 6-foot-7 wing spent time with the Sonics, Mavericks, Bucks, Spurs, Nuggets and Hornets before retiring in 2000.
