8. Detlef Schrempf

The first German star of the National Basketball Association, Detlef Schrempf was already an All Star (with Indiana) when he came to Seattle but it was in the state of Washington where he would become a national star.  Schrempf was a part of the Sonics push to the 1996 Finals and would make two more All Star Games while playing for Seattle.  Schrempf would post his best scoring season with 19.2 PPG (1994-95) as a Sonic.

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.

26. Detlef Schrempf

Detlef Schrempf was the complete package.  He could score, pass, rebound, run the court and really shoot.  His ability to do everything made him the perfect sixth man; and he had that really cool German name.  People tend to forget that he (not Dirk Nowitzki) was the first European star to hit the NBA.  That has got to count for something!  He had a very solid career, but not spectacular and never playing on a winner; though he did come close with Seattle, hurts his overall Hall chances.
