Grevey enjoyed four more solid seasons in Washington, averaging no less than 13.3 points per game. An injury sidelined him for half of the 1982–83 season and reduced him to a reserve for the remainder of his career. He played his final two seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Grevey played college basketball at the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of legendary coach Adolph Rupp's last freshman class and played his three collegiate seasons (freshmen were not eligible to play varsity basketball at the time) under Rupp's successor, Joe B. Hall. He was named First-Team All-Southeastern Conference in all three of his college seasons and All-American in his junior and senior years. In his senior year Kentucky lost to UCLA in the championship game of the NCAA Tournament in what would be the final game in the career of UCLA's legendary coach John Wooden; Grevey scored a game-high 34 points and was named to the all-Final Four team.
Chenier was one of the better shooting guards in the NBA for the first six seasons in his career, but he suffered a back injury early in the 1977–78 season and had season-ending surgery.

Chenier was never the same player after that; he came back from his surgery late the next season, but never could crack the Bullets' starting lineup again.
The Sonics won a close one in OT 114–112, staving off a late Bullets comeback behind 36 points by Gus Williams and 32 by Dennis Johnson.

Johnson also had four blocks in the game, the last on Kevin Grevey with 4 seconds left to ensure the Seattle victory.
In 80 career games Parker scored 1,238 points and grabbed 660 rebounds. Parker also unwittingly played a large part in influencing soon-to-be Kentucky star Jack Givens' decision to attend. Givens was not thrilled with Kentucky as a potential school to play for, but after seeing Parker in action his attitude changed. Givens later said, "Tom Parker could really shoot the ball, a lefty small forward who was a lot like Kevin Grevey ... I loved the way Tom played, so that made me change my thinking towards Kentucky."
"Beyond the Gate" gathered positive reviews, and a special website (wretchedthrash.com) was created that featured short stories for every song on the album. So far, two pieces have been featured, but with the vocalist change in 2011, there is very little chance work will be completed. Currently, wretchedthrash.com redirects to an election news website. Along with the new vocalist, the band replaced Rico Marziali with Andrew Grevey as the bass player, and they have toured with The Browning, Serpents and Impending Doom to support "Beyond The Gate".

Wes Unseld scored 15 points while pulling down 9 rebounds as the Bullets emerged with a 105–99 victory to win their first NBA Championship.
