10. Othella Harrington

Othella Harrington accepted a scholarship to Georgetown University following fellow “big men” Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, and Alonzo Mourning to play for coach John Thompson, so he clearly had a lot of pressure on him upon his arrival. He was named Big East Freshman of the Year and was a 2nd Team All-American selection heading into his sophomore year and would eventually leave Georgetown ranked fifth in all-time scoring, with a career field goal percentage of 56%, fifth in blocks, fourth in rebounding overall and finished as the school’s all-time leader in offensive rebounds. In the NBA, Harrington was mostly used as a reserve, but he was a solid post presence in that capacity (most successfully as a Knick). In his brief stint as a Grizzlies starter, he averaged career highs of 13.1 points and 6.9 rebounds.
