53. Glenn Robinson
Glenn Robinson is a player whose college career seemingly eclipsed his professional career; but if it did, it isn’t by much.  Robinson was the Player of the Year for Purdue in 1994 after leading the Big Ten in scoring and rebounding and taking the Boilermakers to an Elite 8. Professionally, Robinson had to go to San Antonio late in his career to get that coveted championship as a role player, but lest we forget Robinson was one of the most consistent scorers in the league with the Bucks from the time he was drafted number one overall in 1994 until his departure in 2002.  Sure, there were no finals but the Bucks won many games.  He may have only had two All-Star game appearances but he should have had more as his 20.7 point per game will attest to.  Glenn Robinson had one of the best mid range games ever and was a true superstar at both Purdue and Milwaukee.
