Years: 1981-1994
Teams: Suns, Cavaliers
A power forward/center with a wingman's hops, Nance was a key member of a Cleveland Cavaliers nucleus that won 54 or more games three times in a five-year span in the late '80s and early '90s. He won the Slam Dunk contest in 1984, but it was his mid-range game and defense that made him one of the most valuable under the radar players during his career. He averaged 17 and 8 for his career, and shot below .520 only once (he posted a .546 career shooting percentage). If not for some dude named Jordan and his "Shot," Nance and the rest of the Lenny Wilkens era Cavs would've had a lot more shine.
