Micah Blunt is a retired American professional basketball player.

Background[edit]

The 6-9, 210-pound native of New Orleans was a product of Tulane University.

Basketball career[edit]

Blunt was the Los Angeles Lakers eighth round pick in the 1982 National Basketball Association (NBA) draft. He never made it to the Lakers roster with only first pick James Worthy working his way up to earn a spot with the LA Lakers.

In 1983, Blunt made his debut in the English league with the Uxbridge club, Brunel Ducks. He tried his luck in two NBA camps the following year but neither the Lakers nor the LA Clippers took the option to select him. He returned to England and suited up for Plymouth in the second division in the 1984-85 season. Blunt averaged 6.5 points for the Evansville Thunder in the Continental league, and also played briefly for the Dijon team in France.

In 1986, Blunt ranked second in scoring in the English league, hitting a 30.1 clip for the Calderdale Explorers. He led Calderdale to the Prudential Cup semifinals but the Explorers lost an 81-77 decision to Portsmouth despite his team-high 22 points.
