Kevin Porter (born April 17, 1950, in Chicago, Illinois) is a retired American professional basketball player.
Porter was an outstanding player at DuSable High School in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1968. The 6'0" point guard then went to Saint Francis University (PA). Porter played ten seasons (1972–1981; 1982–1983) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Baltimore/Capital/Washington Bullets, the Detroit Pistons, and the New Jersey Nets. Porter was one of the most talented passers in league history, leading the league in both assists per game and total assists four times during his career (1975, 1978, 1979, and 1981). At one point, Porter held the record for most assists in a game, with 29. (Scott Skiles broke the record when he tallied 30 assists on December 30, 1990.)
Porter was also a key member of the 1975 Bullets team which reached the NBA Finals before losing to the Golden State Warriors. When he retired in 1983, he had accumulated 5,314 career assists and 7,645 career points.
After his basketball playing days, Porter coached basketball at the Jensen Academy elementary school in Chicago. He won six championships during 1997-2003--five as the 7/8 girls head coach and one as the 5/6 boys head coach. His 7/8 boys squad from the year 2007-2008 reached the regional championship.
The team from 2007-2008 was said to be his best team there from all the time he coached there.
