Wes Unseld stood 6-foot-7 when playing for the Washington Bullets. No center that went up against the former Louisville star would tell you the height difference meant a lot due to the strength and will Unseld brought to the game. The NBA champ and Finals MVP in 1978, Unseld was also the league MVP in 1969 when he was Rookie of the Year after being selected second overall. Unseld averaged more rebounds (14) than points (10.8) and was an inductee to the Hall of Fame in 2006.
