The 15 Greatest White Point Guards in NBA History

8. Gene Shue

Team(s): Knicks ('54-'56, '62-'63), Pistons ('56-'62), Baltimore Bullets ('63-'64)
Accolades: 5x All-Star, 1x All-NBA 1st Team
Stats: 14.4 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 3.7 APG 

Back when players wore belts in their shorts and featured the bounce pass exclusively, Gene Shue was credited with inventing the "spin move." His flair for Elvis Presley-like razzle-dazzle made him one of the league's best guards but, presumably, offended the sensibilities of 1950's America with his aggressive hip gyrations. While with the Pistons, Shue went to five consecutive All-Star games and, in averaging 22.8 PPG, was named All-NBA in 1960.
