33. Bobby Phills

Bobby Phills was drafted in the 2nd Round of the Milwaukee Bucks in 1991, but he never made it to the NBA with them.  He would eventually latch on to Cleveland and worked his way into a permanent roster spot with the Cavs where he would be known for his ferocious defensive ability.  Phills (who Michael Jordan once called one of the toughest men to defend him) was a Second Team All-Defensive Selection in 1995/96, and he would average 10.5 Points per Game over his 334 games in Cleveland.

Sadly, he will be best remembered for speeding and crashing his car as a member of the Charlotte Hornets in the 1999/2000 season.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.
