8. Alonzo Mourning
The second overall pick in the 1992 Draft (behind Shaquille O’Neal), Alonzo Mourning made an immediate impact in the NBA for the Charlotte Hornets. Playing his first three seasons with Charlotte, Mourning would be an All Star twice and would average a spectacular 21.3 Points, 10.1 Rebounds and 3.1 Blocks per game as a Hornet.

Mourning would be traded and would later be a two time Defensive Player of the Year while playing for the Miami Heat and was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2014.
