Jerry "Ice" Reynolds (born December 23, 1962) is a retired American professional basketball player who was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1st round (22nd overall) of the 1985 NBA Draft. A 6'8" guard-forward from LSU and Madison Area Technical College, Reynolds played in eight NBA seasons from 1985–92 until 1995–96. He played for the Bucks, Seattle SuperSonics and Orlando Magic. His best year as a pro came during the 1989-90 season as a member of the Magic, appearing in 67 games and averaging 12.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.39 steals per game.

Reynolds is credited with being the first person noted to have used the term "24/7", when he described his jump shot as being "good 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year".[1]

Reynolds was also the beneficiary of Scott Skiles' record-breaking 30th assist on December 30, 1990 against the Denver Nuggets.
