Mark Aguirre was a star at the University of DePaul where he led the Demons to a final four and was a 2 time All-American. Drafted number one overall by the Dallas Mavericks, Aguirre quickly became the face of the Mavs. Aguirre proved to be a great scorer and the Mavericks became title contenders throughout the next several years though they could not get past the mighty Lakers. Traded midway through the 88-89 season to the Pistons for Adrian Dantley, Aguirre was reunited with childhood friend Isaiah Thomas and together they led the Pistons to two titles. Aguirre averaged exactly 20 points a game over his 14 year career and will be remembered for his great ability to post up and score from the small forward position.
