9. Don Otten

Otten, a 6'10" center played 3 seasons in the NBL with the Buffalo Bison and Tri-Cities Blackhawks. He was one of the last stars of the dying league and the leagues last scoring champion and MVP.

He had a reputation as a bruiser, which is likely why he holds the NBA record for most personal founds in a game with 8, which he got in 1949 in a game against the Redskins

He would go on to have a successful NBA career with the Milwaukee Hawks, Fort Wayne Pistons, Baltimore Bullets and Washington Capitols.

He and his brother Mac would become the first brothers to play on the same team at the same time.
