6. Richard Jefferson

Arriving to New Jersey as a draft day trade. Richard Jefferson would become an integral part of the Nets back-to-back appearances in the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.  The Small Forward would gradually grow his skills and at one time he was among the best mid-range shooters in the NBA.  Jefferson would twice go over 22 Points per Game (2004-05 & 2007-08) and over his seven seasons as a Net he had a PPG of 17.4.  While he was never an All Star, a case can be made that he is one of the best players ever who was never chosen for it. 

Richard Jefferson

Richard Jefferson may never have been an NBA All Star but it can certainly be argued that he was on the cusp of it in multiple seasons.  The best seasons of Jefferson’s career took place with the New Jersey Nets where twice he averaged over 22 Points per Game and another 19 PPG campaigns.  Later in his professional career as a reserve player with the Cleveland Cavaliers he would win a NBA Championship.
