Pervis Ellison (born April 3, 1967) is an American former professional basketball player. Ellison earned the nickname "Never Nervous Pervis" due to his play at the University of Louisville, including leading the Cardinals to the 1986 national championship. A highly touted draft prospect, he played for four teams from 1989 to 2000 during a relatively disappointing career in the NBA.
