Ranking Top 10 Power Forwards in NBA History

#9 Dolph Schayes

Although we tend to associate Syracuse and its rich sports history with college basketball and the success of the Orange, once upon a time pro basketball was the talk of the town. Prior to relocating to Philadelphia in 1963 and becoming the 76ers, the Nationals, led by Schayes, were one of the premier sports teams. They won the NBA title in 1955, largely because of the dominance of the 6-foot-7 power forward. Schayes, a Bronx, N.Y. native and 12-time All-Star, emerged as a great coach, too, winning the Coach of the Year Award with the Sixers shortly after retiring as a player.
