14. Isaiah Rider

Most casual NBA fans would know Isaiah Rider for his 1994 Slam Dunk Contest performance (seen above).

He should receive some recognition for that performance alone, he was one of the first to do a between-the-legs dunk (East Bay Funk Dunk!). On the other hand, in Rider’s three season in Minnesota he was a good basketball player and not just a dunker.

Mainly known for his scoring, Rider averaged 18.5 points per game in three seasons in Minnesota and averaged 20.4 points per game during the 1994-95 campaign, the highest points per game average throughout his entire nine-year career.
