The Admiral dominated the glass as he recorded a total of 10,497 rebounds for his career and led his Spurs to two NBA Championships during his tenure with them.

In addition to being selected as an NBA All-Star in 10 seasons, he is also recognized as the all-time leader in blocks with a total of  2,954 blocked shots for the Spurs franchise.


25. Bill Walton

Bill Walton was selected number one in the 1974 NBA Draft by the Portland Trailblazers for brilliant career in UCLA, leading the Bruins to two NCAA Championships and to a record 88-game winning streak during his career.
