Goodrich, Worthy and Legends 41-50: Top 50 Players in NBA History

48. Dominique Wilkins

Wilkins’ nickname was the “The Human Highlight Film” for his athletic ability and highlight reel dunks. As a basketball player he was known as an acrobatic scorer, an outstanding finisher and one of the greatest dunkers in NBA history. His number 21 jersey was retired by the Hawks on January 13, 2001.

Prior to his last three NBA seasons, Wilkins never averaged fewer than 20 points per game and captured a scoring title in 1985-86 with an average of 30.3 points per game.

A nine-time NBA All-Star and the winner of two NBA Slam Dunk Contests, Wilkins registered 26,668 points and 7,169 rebounds in his NBA career.


47. Ray Allen

Ray Allen is one of the most accurate 3-point and free throw shooters in NBA history. He is a ten-time NBA All-Star and won an Olympic gold medal as a member of the 2000 United States Men’s Basketball Team.

On February 10, 2011, Allen became the NBA’s all-time leader in regular season three-point field goals made, surpassing Reggie Miller’s mark of 2,560.

Allen finally captured championship fever when he won his first ring with the Boston Celtics in 2008.
