Dolph Schayes Nats

No school like the old school. Before Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain there was a man by the name of Schayes, Dolph Schayes. 12 Straight All-Star seasons and all 15 years of his illustrious career were spent with the Nationals/76ers franchise.

Schayes competed with the best of the best during his tenure in the league, playing pre and post NBA merger. Schayes led the Nationals to a Championship in 1955, leading all players in the post-season in both points and rebounds. Unfortunately for Schayes and the Nationals in 1957 Russell and the Celtics ended all future title aspirations.
