Fat Lever has one of the most awesome names in all of sports, and also showed many that a point guard can rebound the ball and be a threat outside of dishing and shooting from the perimeter. Lever had a solid stretch from '86-'90 as a Denver Nugget averaging 18.9 PPG, 8.9 RPG, and 7.5 APG leading them to the playoffs every year. In 1990 Lever had a severe knee injury that held him out for most of the next two seasons and the entire '92-'93 season changing his NBA trajectory completely. Can we get back to talking about his name being Lafayette, though? 'Cause that's like amazing.
