7. Elgin Baylor
Elgin Baylor is what many NBA statisticians call a “technicality.” We’ll explain that in a second. Baylor is an 11-time NBA All-Star who landed on the All-NBA First Team 10 times throughout his career. He was mostly known for his work during the 1950s & 1960s. Baylor was an impressive player who was known for his absolutely incredible athleticism.
During a time in which this was not really as common as it would become, it excited fans. This allowed Baylor to be one of the game’s greatest scorers. He regularly averaged 25 points a season. However, from 1960 to 1963, he averaged 34 points a game with one season averaging 38. Elgin was also nearly impossible to stop as a rebounder, averaging 12 or more rebounds from 1958 to 1965.
Baylor is a career 27.4 points, 13.4 rebounds per game player. He sadly could never win a ring when he played. However, his last season he only played 6 games at the beginning of the season. Funny enough, his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, actually won an NBA Title that year. Baylor was given a ring by the team in honor of his work but he certainly did not win a title in his active career. Thus, the technicality.
