20. Clyde "The Glide" Drexler was a sight to behold in his playing days

Clyde "The Glide" Drexler was a sight to behold in his playing days. One of the more underrated scorers in the history of the game, Drexler could light up the scoreboard on any given night. A smooth shooting guard out of the University of Houston, Drexler made the Blazers relevant in his playing days.

He earned his nickname "The Glide" through his magnificent drives to the basket, which resulted in smooth dunks and beautifully crafted layups. His game just had a velvet smooth feel to it. But don't mistake that for a lack of drive. Drexler did more than enough to warrant himself as one of the game's greats.

His accolades include being a 10-time NBA All-Star, Olympic gold medalist, two-time All-NBA Third Team, two-time All-NBA Second Team, one-time All-NBA First Team and an NBA championship in 1995 as a member of the Houston Rockets.

Drexler was one of the better all-around wing players the league had ever seen, as evidenced by his 20.4 points per game average, along with more than five-and-a-half assists and six rebounds a game.
