Tony Campbell

Anthony (Tony) Campbell (born May 7 1962 in Teaneck, New Jersey) is a retired American NBA basketball player.

Campbell played high school basketball at Teaneck High School in Teaneck. [https://www.nbrpa.com/news/editorial/3_16_06.aspx One-on-One - Tony Campbell] , National Basketball Retired Players Association. Accessed March 16, 2006.] A 6'7" small forward out of Ohio State University, Campbell was selected 20th overall by the Detroit Pistons in the 1984 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1987.

The Lakers allowed him to be selected in the 1989 expansion draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves for whom he averaged 23.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in their inaugural season. He held the Timberwolves' original all-time scoring record, scoring 4,888 points, before having his record later broken by Doug West. During his tenure in Minnesota, Campbell was able to showcase his talent as the team's primary offensive threat. This was Campbell's biggest opportunity in the league. Campbell struggled for playing time during his stint in Los Angeles as he was forced to play behind hall of famers such as Magic Johnson, Kareem "the dream" Abdul Jabbar and many other stars.

After his time with the Timberwolves, Campbell played for the New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers before retiring in 1995.

In 2006 he became the head boys basketball coach at Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, New Jersey.

After resigning as head coach of Paramus Catholic High School, he became the Director of Athletics, and head coach of the basketball team at Bay Ridge Preparatory School in Brooklyn, New York, which is the position he currently holds.
