High Risers: A History of Tall Sock All-Stars

Pete Maravich

TEAMS: Atlanta Hawks; New Orleans/Utah Jazz; Boston Celtics
CAREER:
 1970–1980
COMPLEX SAYS:
Pistol Pete Maravich's ridiculous moves on the court have often been imitated by young'ns in the league today, but his style of play can truly never be duplicated. Maravich was one of the best guards of all time, regardless of race, but many often give him the distinction of being the greatest white ball-handler of all time. It doesn't look like anyone is challenging dude for that title anytime soon, either. FOH, Ricky Rubio.
