Career stats
: 18.7 PPG 9.4 RPG 3.6 APG SPG BPG
Teams: Cleveland Cavaliers

Before LeBron James came around, Brad Daugherty held the title of greatest Cavalier ever as he proved prognosticators right after being the No. 1 pick in the 1986 draft. He was a legit center with real big man moves and a powerful tenacity that rivaled some of the games greats. Back injuries cut his career short however, as after eight seasons he called it quits already considered the franchise's greatest big man and All-Time scorer. Had he remained healthy who knows how he'd be remembered today, plenty of NBA fans probably don't even know who he was and he averaged almost 19 PPG and 10 RPG for his career! SMH.
