One of the greatest international players in NBA history, Detlef Schrempf was a 6-foot-9 forward who could play either the small forward or power forward position, but it was his deadly accuracy from the perimeter and his Ivan Drago-esque flat top that really made him a memorable player on some strong Seattle teams. When the Sonics had Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, Schrempf was entrenched in the starting lineup at the small forward position, and he made three all-star teams during his time as a starter. But he also won back-to-back Sixth Man of the Year Awards, first in 1990-91 and then the following season when he was playing with the Indiana Pacers. The first of his awards came after he averaged 16.1 points and 8.0 rebounds, while the second saw even better numbers of 17.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 3.7 assists. Those are very solid numbers for a starter, but off the bench? Get out of here.
