17. George Gervin
The “Iceman” George Gervin was always one of the biggest threats on the court during his time. He played for both the ABA & NBA. He averaged around 20 points in his early ABA career but when he moved to the NBA, he showed how truly dominate that he was. Once in the NBA, he was able to put up no less than 21 points per game on average from 1976 to 1985.
4 times during those years, he was the NBA Scoring Champion. Including three years in a row from 1977 to 1980. Those years he scored 27.2, 29.8, 33.1, and 32.3 points per game each year respectably during his scoring title runs. Throughout this time, he was also a 9-time NBA All-Star, 5-time All-NBA First Teamer, and a 2-time All-NBA Second Teamer. While he still was unstoppable in the playoffs, he just couldn’t get it done. Thus making him one of the best players who never won an NBA Championship.
