1987

Rick Barry (pictured), Walt Frazier, Bob Houbregs, Pete Maravich, Bobby Wanzer.

It's all about style and substance for this group, starting with Maravich's floppy socks, mop-top hair and creativity as a passer and as a scorer (pay attention, Ricky Rubio) that made fans smile. Barry was driven and diligent, way more eager to win than to be liked. No one was -- heck, is -- cooler on the NBA scene than Frazier. Wanzer, you should know, was a free-throw marvel who set an accuracy target for Barry's underhanded heaves. Hook-shot specialist Houbregs was from Vancouver, an early NBA import.
