26. Bob Lanier
Several unsung players throughout the early part of the NBA should be highlighted, especially Bob Lanier. This man was as dominant as could be. From 1971 to 1980, he scored around 20 points per game each season. 5 times he scored 24 points per game and up. This allowed him to become a popular player, resulting in Lanier becoming an 8-time NBA All-Star.
Lanier was also a great rebounder and defender, averaging around 2 blocks per game 5 times and having 10 or more rebounds a game 8 times. He’d have 12 rebounds per game or more 6 times. Bob played for both the Detroit Pistons & Milwaukee Bucks, both of which ended up retiring his No.16 number. Sadly, he never won a ring. Thus, he’s one of the best players who never won an NBA Championship.
