Highlights

Yes, Pistol was a two, people! Mahdi Abdul-Rahman, formerly known as Walt Hazzard, was the point guard during his Hawks years and Henry Bibby ran point during his Jazz years. Now that we got that out the way, Maravich was one of the first players to bring the playground to the NBA. He's credited with being the first pro to dribble behind the back and make a between-the-legs pass. Not only was he a magician with the ball, he was also a diabolical scorer; one of the best in fact and would've ranked higher had he played more than 10 seasons.
