William Walton Sharman (May 25, 1926 – October 25, 2013) was an American professional basketball player and coach.
He is mostly known for his time with the Boston Celtics in the 1950s, partnering with Bob Cousy in what some consider the greatest backcourt duo of all time. While Cousy was primarily the playmaker, Sharman was the shooter. As a coach, Sharman won titles in the ABL, ABA, and NBA, and is credited with introducing the morning shootaround.
