Nate Thurmond never backed down from anyone. He played with a brash style that made opposing centers cower in his presence, even some of the greats. He had a well-rounded game that included efficient offense, tenacious rebounding, and extraordinary defense. Thurmond owns the record of most rebounds in a quarter with 18 and was the first player to record a quadruple-double. He's often lost in the shuffle between Wilt and Kareem, but folks that saw him play can attest that Nate was the real deal and deserving of his Hall of Fame status.
