7. Elgin Baylor

Baylor, with his chiseled 6-foot-5, 225-pound frame, had a game ahead of its time. That's why the skill set of one of the league's original swingmen remains timeless. "[Elgin] was one of the most spectacular shooters the game has ever known," Jerry West said. "I hear people talking about forwards today, and I haven't seen many that can compare with him."
