A great shooter and an even better defender, Joe Dumars was one of the main reasons why the Pistons won back to back championships in 1989 and 1990. The six-time All-Star made the All-Defensive team five times and was named the MVP of the ’89 Finals.

17. Shawn Kemp, 1989

Shawn Kemp was one of the most exciting, ferocious players of the ’90s. From 1990-91 through 1996-97, he averaged at least 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. The Reign Man remains one of the best dunkers of all time (see above).
