11. Alex English
Most NBA fans remember the 80s as the decade of Bird’s Celtics vs Magic’s Lakers. That rivalry was filled with an endless list of all-time greats; Bird, Magic, McHale, Abdul-Jabbar and Worthy, just to name a few. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that even the most diehard NBA fans aren’t aware that Nuggets forward Alex English who finished as the leading scorer in the 80s.
He earned eight straight All-Star selections from 1982 to 1989, and despite never playing in the NBA Finals, English was extremely productive in the playoffs. In 68 career playoff games, English was incredibly efficient, scoring 24.4 ppg on 50% from the field and 86% from the free-throw line. English was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 1997.
