If not for a degenerative knee condition that forced him to retire at the age of 33, Sid Moncrief wouldn't be on this list-because he'd be in the Hall of Fame and there'd be a statue of him outside the Bradley Center. In the mid-'80s, Moncrief was the leader of a Milwaukee Bucks team that would've been the best of that decade if not for a couple guys name Bird and Magic. Between 1982 and 1986, Moncrief was named to four All-NBA second teams, one All-NBA first team, and was named defensive player of the year twice. He's also got one of the greatest nicknames in NBA history: Sid the Squid.
