Peja Stojakovic was an integral part of the Kings team that was a perennial playoff contender in the early 2000s. His scoring ability, shooting touch, and off-ball movement made him a key weapon in the Kings’ high-powered offense, complementing Chris Webber’s versatile inside game and Vlade Divac’s passing ability.
During his NBA career, Stojaković was a three-time All-Star, and he won the NBA Three-Point Contest twice. His 2002-03 season was his best, as he averaged 24.2 points per game and finished fourth in MVP voting. He won an NBA Championship in 2011 with the Mavericks, providing valuable shooting off the bench during the team’s playoff run.
Stojaković also had a successful international career. He won gold medals with the Yugoslavian national team at the 2001 FIBA European Championship and the 2002 FIBA World Championship.

David West, a formidable power forward, built a reputation for his toughness, consistency, and leadership both on and off the court during his NBA career. Coming out of Xavier University, West was selected 18th overall by the New Orleans Hornets in the 2003 NBA Draft.
In New Orleans, West quickly became a foundational player, pairing up with point guard Chris Paul to form a dynamic duo. Over the course of his tenure with the Hornets, he established himself as a reliable scorer and rebounder, twice earning NBA All-Star honors.
After his successful stint in New Orleans, West went on to play for the Pacers, where he was an essential part of a team that made multiple deep playoff runs. Later in his career, West pursued an NBA championship and played key roles for the Warriors, contributing to their back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018.

Selected in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson spent the first four seasons of his career in Indiana. His best season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, and led the NBA in triple-doubles (5).
He was a significant contributor to the Pacers teams that made back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 2013 and 2014.
Stephenson later played for several other teams, including the Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Pelicans, and Lakers. Despite bouncing around the league, his dynamic playstyle and sometimes flamboyant on-court antics have made him a memorable figure in the NBA.
Selected 18th overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 1999 NBA Draft, James Posey’s journey in the league spanned a decade, playing for multiple teams and earning a reputation as a reliable “3-and-D” player before the term became widely popular.
The highlight of Posey’s career came during his stints with the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics. In Miami, he played a pivotal role in the Heat’s 2006 championship run alongside stars like Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O’Neal.
As a key reserve for Boston, Posey provided crucial defensive stops and timely three-point shooting, helping the Celtics secure the 2008 NBA Championship. His ability to contribute significantly to two different championship teams attests to his value as a player who could impact games without necessarily being in the spotlight.
