34. Dražen Petrović
We’re going to be a bit unfair with this one, just so you’re aware going in. Dražen Petrović is known by many to be one of if not THE greatest European basketball star who ever lived. European players were not often invited to the NBA back in the early 1980s, so it took some time before Petrović would get a shot. He certainly earned it too as he completely destroyed every league in Europe available to him.
He was the Yugoslav Sportsman of the Year & Croatian Sportsman of the Year in 1985. Petrović also won the Croatian honor a second time in 1986. He won the Mr. Europa Award twice, as well as the FIBA EuroBasket MVP and the FIBA World Championship MVP in 1986. He won the FIBA Saporta Cup Championship twice as well as the EuroLeague Championship twice. Dražen was the top scorer all 4 times. He did not win the FIBA Korac Cup but was the top scorer in those Finals.
He was the Spanish League’s Top Scorer & the Spanish Cup Final Top Scorer in 1989. By the time he ended up in the NBA in 1989, he was near the end of his career. Thus, Petrović only played 3 seasons with his last few seeing him put up 20 points a game, leading to All-NBA Third Team honors. Of course, he still ranks as one of the best players who never won the NBA Championship.
