7. Blair Rasmussen
An Oregon legend, three-time All-American, 7-foot Blair Rasmussen went on to play eight seasons in the league after the Denver Nuggets drafted him in the 1985 NBA Draft.
In three seasons, the center averaged 12 or more points a game, his best season at 12.7 points per game from 1988-89.
Rasmussen played in 532 games over eight years before a back injury ended his career at just 30 years old. He had career averages of 9.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
While he never won a ring, Rasmussen’s production levels were highly impressive for a center in the late 80s to early 90s. If you ask me, his offensive contributions alone put Rasmussen at No. 7 on this list.
Not to mention he also averaged a block a game over all eight years in the NBA.
Rasmussen played with the Nuggets until 1991. He then played two seasons, 103 games, with the Atlanta Hawks.
