24. Conrad McRae
Coming up through Brooklyn Technical High School, Conrad McRae became “McNasty” through his play at tournaments at Rucker Park. Imagine showing up to the courts one day to see this 6’11”, 220 lb. monster working the paint. We wouldn’t want any part of that afternoon. McRae was picked in the 1993 NBA Draft (38th overall by the Washington Bullets), but opted for a career in Europe, starring in the the Turkish League. He came back to the States in 2000 to play for the Orlando Magic, but tragically collapsed and died during a summer league game on July 10 of that year.
