Sixteen years after graduating from Jesuit High School in Beaverton, Mike Dunleavy Jr. has played in more than 900 NBA games.

Now, he's also a member of the Jesuit Hall of Fame.

Dunleavy, 35, was inducted during a special ceremony and luncheon Tuesday in the Jesuit High School Smith Gym.

"The relationships that I have built are by far the best at my time at Jesuit, specifically my teammates, thank you for the passes, the screens, the assists and all that you did to make me look really good," Dunleavy said. "You picked me up when I was down and always fought when things were tough. That is what a team is all about and because of it we can forever call ourselves champions."

Dunleavy first attended Jesuit during his junior year beginning in 1997. He led the Crusaders to their first 20-win season and a trip to the quarterfinals of the state tournament.

During his senior year, Jesuit won the first state championship in school history. Dunleavy was named Oregon Player of the Year, Metro Player of the Year and was named to the all-state first team.

After graduating from Jesuit, Dunleavy attended Duke University and played for coach Mike Krzyzewski for three years. That Duke team won the national championship during Dunleavy's sophomore year and he scored 21 points in the championship game.

Dunleavy entered the NBA Draft after his junior year and was picked third overall by the Golden State Warriors. He would go on to play for the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls during his career, which continued with the Bulls during the 2015-2016 NBA season.

According to ESPN, Dunleavy has career averages of nearly 12 points per game in more than 900 NBA games played.

Dunleavy, his wife Sarah and their three children currently live in Chicago.

His father, Mike Dunleavy Sr., is a former NBA coach and player who earned NBA Coach of the Year honors with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1999.
