Elgin, Cousy and the Dream: Top 50 Players in NBA History Part IV

Part IV of the updated list of the 50 greatest players in NBA history looks at players 20-11, and lists some of the best players to ever play in the league. Make sure you’re up to date by checking out Part I, Part II and Part III of the list.

20. Bob Cousy

Bob Cousy, or “The Cooz” was instrumental for the Boston Celtics during the 1950′s as he helped orchestrate the offense as they won six championships during his tenure with the organization. Cousy created the dynasty for the Celtics with his ridiculous passes and amazing ball-handling skills, which eventually totaled 6,955 assist (7.5 apg) for his career.

Through his stellar play, he was selected to be an NBA All-Star for 13 seasons and selected to the All-NBA First Team for 10 seasons. All Celtics fans admire the “Houdini of the Hardwood” for his contribution to the organization, and the number 14 is retired and hung in the rafters of the Boston Garden.

19. Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett spent most of his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 1995 to 2007 as he was the superstar for the team, but then he was able to unleash his full potential when he joined the Boston Celtics in 2007.

He has been selected as an NBA All-Star 14-times in his career for his remarkable basketball skills as a double-double machine in points and rebounds. He has averaged 19.6 points per game and 11.1 rebounds per game for his career, but he is mostly recognized for his amazing presence on the defensive end of the floor.

Garnett has been selected on the All Defensive Team for the NBA 11-times and was also the rebounding champion for the entire league for four consecutive seasons from 2004-2007.
