23. Walter Davis

Walter Davis was one of the best shooters n the history of the league.  He predated the heavy influence of the 3 point line or he may have been that generations Reggie Miller.  A great career at North Carolina was followed by an even better pro career primarily for the Phoenix Suns that got him elected to 6 All-Star teams.  Davis averaged almost 19 points a game and came up just short of the magical 20,000 point mark.

37. Rasheed Wallace

While Rasheed Wallace was known mostly for getting technical fouls, he was so much more than just that. Rasheed cut his teeth with the North Carolina Tar Heels and the former first rounder would make waves with the Portland Trail Blazers, emerging as the team’s leader and whether you liked him or hated him, his passion for the sport of basketball was undeniable. The four time All Star may not have been considered the best at his position at any point of his career but he was a vital member of the shocking Detroit Pistons team that won the title in 2004. That is something that men with better regular seasons cannot boast.

61. Brad Daugherty

Brad Daugherty was an All-American at North Carolina and the number one overall pick of the 1986 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers just ahead of Len Bias.  Along with fellow rookies John Hot Rod Williams, Mark Price and Ron Harper, Daugherty ushered in the highest competitive run in Cavalier history.  The Cavs were title contenders in the Eastern Conference for the next decade and if it wasn’t for the great Bulls teams, they may have won a few titles.  Daugherty averaged 19 points and 10 boards over those ten years and was a five time All-Star. Daugherty had the size (seven feet and 245 pounds) to dominate the middle and as you can see by his stats he was very productive.
