The Mavs have drafted and signed a lot of forgettable big men and one of those guys in the 90s was 7’1 Greg Dreiling. He played 10 season in the league with 3 different teams but there’s a good chance even basketball fans from the 80s and 90s wont remember his name. As for his game, his career high in scoring and rebounding came in 1990 when he averaged 3.5 points and 3.5 boards.

If you try to find any highlights of him, the only thing that you might find is this dunk by Scottie Pippen during Drelings’ final season in the NBA. Maybe this dunk is the dunk that put him in retirement or the fact that he finished the game with 2 points and 5 fouls in just 10 minutes.

So how did he rebound from this game?  He had 0 points and 3 fouls in 17 minutes the very next night. But I have to give the guy some credit. He was a 2nd round pick and lasted 10 seasons. There’s #1 picks that can’t say that.
