When you have your image forever immortalized as the emblem to an entire league, you deserve to crack the top ten. Jerry West has the stats and the game to back it up. He has made a career out of being one of the best scoring and passing guards in his time with the Los Angeles Lakers. He led the team to a number of Finals, but was tormented by the Boston Celtics in the deciding series for years. He reached his break-through two years before he retired in 1972, when his Lakers beat the New York Knicks.
Career averages: 27 ppg, 7 apg, and 6 rpg.
