Lots of worthy players to choose from, but I'm going with Dolph Schayes here.
Schayes, a 38% career shooter, is a a more "worthy" player, right?

Elvin Hayes is my vote

Hayes led the entire Playoffs in points that year.
Hayes led his team in points, rebounds, and blocks in the '78 playoffs when they won the Championship, so he was clearly the best player on the team.

8th all-time on the NBA scoring list with 27,313 points
4th alltime on the NBA rebounding list with 16,279 rebounds
20th all-time in blocks with 1,771

NBA champion (1978)
**Robbed of Finals MVP (1978)
12 NBA All-Star (1969–1980)
NBA scoring champion (1969)
3 All-NBA First Team (1975, 1977, 1979)
3 All-NBA Second Team (1973, 1974, 1976)
2 NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1974–1975)
NBA All-Rookie First Team (1969)
I've heard from posters here that he wasn't a good teammate, but I think he has the best career out of everybody else. He did good on the court it seems.
