A monster on offense, a beast on the boards, and a tenacious shot blocker, Nate Thurmond easily ranks up there as one of the greatest to ever hit the court. He also owns the record for most rebounds in a quarter (18) and recorded the first quadruple-double in history (1974) (a feat that was last accomplished by David Robinson in 1994) after being traded to the Bulls.
Thurmond made his Finals appearance in 1967 against Wilt Chamberlain's Sixers. Despite Rick Barry's 40.8 PPG performance in the series, the Warriors fell in six games.
