12. Detlef Schrempf

Detlef Schrempf will always be best remembered in the NBA as a Seattle SuperSonic, but his American stardom really began in the state of Indiana.

The German Forward arrived in the Hoosier State in the middle of 1988-89 season, and he would never finish below 14 Points per Game a season during his four and a half years as a Pacer.  Schrempf was used off of the bench for most of his Pacers career, and he would win the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in two straight seasons (1991 & 1992).  The Power Forward's best year in Indiana was his last year, where he had a 19.1 PPG with his first All-Star Game.  After that year, he was traded to Seattle and would become a more prominent name in the world of basketball.
