14. Moses Malone
The man who made “Fo’-Fo’-Fo'” a recognized part of the sports lexicon, Moses Malone was one of the first players in NBA history to jump straight to the professional level out of high school. Malone blossomed after being traded to the Houston Rockets, winning the NBA MVP award in 1979 and 1982.
And after Houston decided they did not want to meet Malone’s contract demands at the end of the 1982 season, they traded him to the Philadelphia 76ers, where Malone would go on to win another MVP award and help the 76ers win their last NBA Championship to date. During his prime, between 1979 and 1985, Malone averaged 25.9 points, 14.8 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game.
