108. Truck Robinson
Len “Truck” Robinson fit his nickname and could very well be the very definition of a power forward.  He was a “truck” underneath, using his incredible strength to dominate.  A great rebounder Truck also had the ability to score and developed a great mid range game.  Injuries limited his career totals and this will hurt his chances, however fans of the NBA before the Bird-Magic liftoff remember how dominant he could be.

I have been following NBA since my childhood days and the nickname of ‘truck’ does suit Robinson very well looking at his massive energy capacity. He would have gone to more heights had his health served him better.
