5. Larry Nance

Larry Nance spent the first half of his career with the Phoenix Suns where he was an All-Star in 1985.  The Power Forward would be traded in the 1987/88 Season in a mega-deal, and both teams would come out ahead.  The Power Forward brought defensive stability to the Cavaliers, and they would become more significant threats in the East.  The Power Forward would be named to two All-Star Games as a Cavalier, and he was a three-time All-Defensive Selection (one First Team and two Second Teams), and he would have five straight seasons averaging eight or more boards per game.  In that same stretch, he never dipped below 2.0 Blocks per Game in a year, and he never fell below 11th in that metric. 

46. Larry Nance

Larry Nance was a very solid forward in the NBA who is most known for winning the first All-Star game slam dunk competition in a huge upset.  At 6 foot 11, Nance was a player that could flat get up in the air, but he was much more than just a dunker.
