30. Allen Iverson
A.I. is best known for dominating the following years (between 2000-2010). Iverson made the All-Star team every single season during this span. However, he also featured for four seasons during the ’90’s. In this time period, the diminutive guard averaged 25.2 PPG — including 23.5 PPG as a rookie. Though Iverson didn’t feature for the entire decade, his impact on the league during the latter portion of the ’90’s was palpable.
29. Tim Duncan
The ‘Greatest Power Forward of All-Time’ began his illustrious career in the 1990’s. During a three-year stretch with San Antonio, Duncan was productive immediately. He averaged 22 PPG, 11.9 RPG, and 2.4 BPG. There weren’t many forwards putting up these types of numbers (let alone a rookie). The Wake Forest product flashed an advanced post game, was an above-average rebounder, and was a willing defender. Had Duncan featured for a few more years in the ’90’s, he’d skyrocket up the list considerably.
