Wally Szczerbiak
The son of former ABA player, Walter Szczerbiak, Wally Szczerbiak took his pedigree to Miami of Ohio and was one of the top players that institution ever had. As a pro, he had his best years aiding Kevin Garnett with the Minnesota Timberwolves and was selected as an All Star in the 2002 game. Szczerbiak was a good player, but was never considered part of the elite. As he never had a PER over 19, it is difficult to make a case for him for the Hall of Fame, or frankly even our top 100 who should be considered. The Redhawks should do something to honor him though.

  • 98. Sam Perkins
    98. Sam Perkins Sam Perkins was the quintessential big man who could bang underneath and then step out and hit a three.  Perkins did everything the easy way and never looked like he was giving any effort at all; but his productivity was always there.  Contrary to popular belief “Sleepy” Sam never won a NBA title (though he captured an NCAA Championship).  It…
