Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain are names of stars that people will never forget, but what about some of the names of NBA stars that we shouldn’t have forgotten? The names of players like an Elgin Baylor, Alex English or even a Mitch Richmond fall into the category.
These players dominated in their time, but people often forget their name until someone says something about that player. The token response is usually, “oh yeah, that guy was great back in the day” or “I completely forgot about that guy.”
Players can have dominating impacts on teams and eras, but with the passage of time, their luster fades. There are at least 20 guys who might want a pat on the back for all of the hard work they put in during their day.
