40. Larry Kenon
Larry Kenon was drafted by the Memphis Tams of the American Basketball Association but was traded to the Nets where he was named an ABA All-Star in his rookie season making an imposing frontcourt with “Dr. J”, Julius Erving.  “Mr. K” (or “Special K”) helped New York win the ABA Championship in 1974 and he averaged a double-double with 15.9 Points and 11.9 Rebounds per Game.  Kenon would again put up similar numbers in his second season (18.7 Points and 10.7 Rebounds per Game) but he was traded to San Antonio as they felt they could give up his rebounding for other playmakers.  Still, this a pretty good pair of seasons for the Nets, which earned him this decent ranking.
