Alex English was the centerpiece of the rainbow-colored chaotic force known as the 1980s Denver Nuggets. The forward was overshadowed by some of the other stars of his era, but it should be noted that it was he-not Magic, Bird, or Wilkins-who led the decade in scoring. He also holds the distinction of being the first player to score 2000 points in eight straight seasons. He led the Nuggets to nine playoff appearances but never made it to the Finals. Consistently having one of the league's worst defenses will do that to you.
