12. Big Ben
“That I’ve seen, Ben Wallace. Huge, jacked, and he just had this look about him like he might murder someone at any moment,” GalileoWasDownvoted observed. Sometimes actions speak for themselves and this was exactly the case in Wallace’s situation. The former Pistons star was an unbelievable hit in Detroit, where he became a four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
As a result, he became one of the league’s most intimidating players. His intensity and winning mentality contributed to Detroit’s Championship win in 2004. Furthermore, he led the league in blocks in 2002 cementing his reputation as an unpassable obstacle. A four-time All-Star, Detroit even retired his jersey number because of his brilliance for the franchise.
