84. Dick Barnett

Dick Barnett led tiny Tennessee State to three straight NAIA titles in the 50’s before becoming a star with the Lakers and the Knicks.  He was on both of the Knicks championship teams.  Barnett had 15,000 career points for “Fall Back Baby” as Chick Hearn dubbed him as he was as infamous for the way he shot his great jump shot (he actually kicked both of his legs out when shooting his jump shot). He was elected in the second College Hall of fame class in 2007, which will likely hurt his chances of getting in the real one.

106. Truck Robinson

Len “Truck” Robinson fit his nickname and could very well be the very definition of a power forward.  He was a “truck” underneath, using his incredible strength to dominate.  A great rebounder Truck also had the ability to score and developed a great mid range game.  Injuries limited his career totals and this will hurt his chances, however fans of the NBA before the Bird-Magic liftoff remember how dominant he could be.
