15. Pete Maravich
Let’s put it this way: “Pistol” Pete Maravich was to the 1970’s what Stephen Curry has been to the 2010’s — a one-man offensive wrecking ball who forced opponents to check him as far as 25 feet away from the basket. During the peak of his career, Maravich essentially averaged 28 points per game, and that was before the implementation of the three-point line; it’s completely fair to say that he could have averaged upwards of 33 points per game if they counted three-pointers. However, unlike Curry, Maravich never made it out of the conference finals; his closest shot at even making an NBA Finals came in 1980, as a member of the Boston Celtics, during his last season in the NBA.
