To begin with, Brad Daugherty entered the University of North Carolina in the summer of 1982. At first, Daugherty played in the shadow of future basketball heroes named Michael Jordan, James Worthy and Sam Perkins. When all of them went on to continue their careers playing in the NBA, Daugherty carried the team on his broad shoulders. He completed his college career with a final top level season running at 20.2 points and nine rebounds per game. Then, all observers predicted an outstanding career in the NBA for him.

Concerning his professional career, Brad Daugherty was selected the 1st in the 1st round of the NBA Draft 1986 by the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the help of Ron Harper and Mark Price, Daugherty had a solid first season with an average of 15.7 points 8.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, and was selected to the All-Rookie Team. The following season, Daugherty became the top scorer and rebounder of the team, and participated in the NBA All-Star Game 1988 alongside other league stars Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson , Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Larry Bird. In 1988-1989, Daugherty led the Cavaliers to their best record in the franchise’s history with 57 wins and 25 losses.
