35. Gus Johnson, basketball

The windmill dunk. The kangaroo leap. The shattered backboards. That was Johnson, a prototype for today's power forwards who played nine seasons for the Baltimore Bullets (1963-64 to 1971-72) and led them to three division titles. "Honeycomb," who stood 6 feet 6, averaged 17.1 points and 12.7 rebounds in 10 NBA seasons and made the All-Star team five times. He's a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame.
