7. Detlef Schrempf
Schrempf was the first of only two German players to ever reach the NBA Finals. Although he didn’t win, losing out to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, he was still a great player. In short, he lasted for 16 seasons in the league. Also, he gained a lot of individual recognition in the NBA and with West Germany.
The German starred for the Indiana Pacers, the Seattle SuperSonics, and the Portland Trail Blazers. He was also a three-time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year. Schrempf represented his country at the Olympic games and the EuroBasket Championships.
