Neil Johnston flew under the radar for many years, sandwiched between the likes of George Mikan and Bill Russell in the NBA timeline. But don't kid yourself, Johnston could ball. He played his entire career with the Philadelphia Warriors and led them to the 1956 title with the help of another great in Paul Arizin. Johnston was a great rebounder and scorer as well, leading the league in rebounding once and in scoring three consecutive times.
