Jason Richardson

Jason Richardson is remembered by most for his incredible athleticism, particularly his dunking ability. He was selected 5th overall by the Golden State Warriors in the 2001 NBA Draft.

Richardson also had successful stints with the Bobcats, Suns, Magic, and 76ers throughout his 14-year career. His best statistical season came in 2005-2006 with the Warriors, where he averaged 23.2 points per game.

He has been named an All-Star eight times and has been selected to the All-NBA First Team five times. Howard has led the NBA in rebounds a remarkable five times and blocks twice. His highest achievement came in 2008 when he was named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year, an honor he would win three times consecutively.

Primarily known as a journeyman point guard and a valuable role player, Smith’s quickness and ability to distribute the ball have been his standout attributes.
