23. Sidney Moncrief
There are very few men like Sidney Moncrief. He was not only one of the most gifted defenders who ever lived but he’s also a terrific offensive player too. Moncrief began his career as a good defender but quickly proved he could be a great scorer, proving this when he averaged 20 or more points per game for 5 seasons in a row during the 1980s.
He’s a 2-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, appearing 4 times on the NBA All-Defensive First Team 4 times in his career and once on the All-Defensive Second Team. Moncrief appeared on the All-NBA First Team once but appeared on the All-NBA Second Team 4 times. This is on top of being a 5-time NBA All-Star. Guys like Sidney could have been a massive use on a great NBA team that made the Finals, but he could never achieve his goal of getting a ring.
