Oklahoma City Thunder

Detlef Schrempf, Germany

The second big German on our list, Detlef Schrempf was a smooth scorer, a decent rebounder and a plus distributor during his time with the Seattle SuperSonics (now the Oklahoma City Thunder).

Throughout his six campaigns with Seattle, Schrempf averaged 16.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per contest, while earning two All-Star nods.

In 1995-96, with the 6-foot-9 German starting at the 4, the Sonics had one of their best campaigns in franchise history. They went 64-18 in the regular season and ultimately pushed the Bulls to six games in the NBA Finals before finally succumbing to Jordan and Co.

Schrempf may have been the third fiddle on that team, behind Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t vital to their success.
