97. Danny Manning
Like Laettner, Danny Manning is one of the great college players ever, almost singlehandedly carrying Kansas to a national title in 1988. His pro career was marked with frequent injuries and playing on some bad teams. He was a two time All-Star and if anyone could get in for one remarkable month of basketball it would be Manning. Manning was also elected to the college hall in 2008 thus greatly reducing his chances of getting into the main Hall in Springfield.
