#4: Larry Foust (PER 22) 

Foust was a teammate of Yardley’s in the Fort Wayne era, but he never actually played for the team in Detroit. 

But he did make the All-Star team the first six years of his career with the Pistons, which lasted 476 games overall. He averaged 15 points, 10.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists for the Pistons, and made the All-Star team eight times total in his career, which eventually led to his induction into the Hall of Fame. 

The game was certainly different back then, as Foust made the All-Star team in his first three seasons in the league even though he shot less than 40 percent from the floor. Foust once led the league in field goal percentage at 48 percent, which would not put him in the top-50 in field goal percentage this season.
