Ralph Sampson

The season before Michael Jordan became the 1984 NBA Rookie of the Year, Ralph Sampson wore the title proudly as a player for the Houston Rockets. He proved to be a great first overall draft pick as well. He qualified as an NBA All-Star for every year that he donned a Rockets jersey. His 7-foot-4 stature allowed Ralph Sampson to pretty much dominate on the court. How could anyone forget that game-winning buzzer shot during Game 5 of the 1986 NBA Playoffs?
