2. Sidney Moncrief
Sidney Moncrief was one of the greatest defenders in the history of the NBA.  His ability to shut down anyone in the backcourt no matter how big or how quick was his calling card.  Twice he won NBA Defensive Player of the Year award and was always named to the All Defensive Team.  Moncrief was also a solid offensive who was an integral part of the Bucks playoff teams in the 80's and earned a couple of all league honors.

He was a standout career as a member of the triplets (with Marvin Delph and Ron Brewer) at Arkansas where he was a first team All-American and played in a final four.  There is realistically no reason that Moncrief is not already in but he should be.

Should Sidney Moncrief be in the Hall of Fame?
