In 2016, Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors. During his time with the Warriors, Durant won two NBA championships in 2017 and 2018 and was named the NBA Finals MVP both times. In 2019, he left for the Brooklyn Nets. However, he missed the entire 2019-2020 season due to an Achilles injury he suffered in the 2019 NBA Finals.

Over his career, Durant has averaged 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. He’s also a multiple-time All-Star and has been named to several All-NBA teams.

In 2016, Jefferson won an NBA Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He played a key supporting role alongside LeBron James, helping the Cavaliers come back from a 3-1 series deficit in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

Troy Murphy

Troy Murphy was known for his rebounding prowess and his ability to stretch the floor with his three-point shooting, a somewhat rare combination for big men during his era. Drafted 14th overall in the 2001 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, Murphy quickly became a key player for the team, showcasing his double-double capabilities.

After spending six years with the Warriors, Murphy also had a successful stint with the Indiana Pacers, where he continued his trend of being a consistent double-double performer.

He later played for teams like the Nets, Celtics, and Lakers. Throughout his NBA journey, Murphy’s unique combination of inside presence and perimeter shooting made him a valuable asset for the teams he played for.

Jamal Crawford

Jamal Crawford is widely regarded as one of the best sixth men in NBA history, thanks to his uncanny scoring ability and flair for the dramatic. Over the course of his lengthy career, Crawford played for several teams, leaving an indelible mark with his unique ball-handling skills and clutch shot-making ability.

Crawford was a three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner, a feat only a handful of players have achieved. Though he bounced around the league, some of his most memorable moments came during his stints with the Los Angeles Clippers and the Atlanta Hawks.

Whether it was scoring 50+ points in a game with multiple franchises or breaking defenders’ ankles with his signature crossover, Crawford’s style and prowess have made him a fan favorite wherever he’s played.

Jim Jackson

Jim Jackson entered the NBA when he was selected 4th overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 1992 NBA Draft.

In Dallas, he quickly showcased his scoring prowess, becoming one of the young pillars of the team alongside Jason Kidd and Jamal Mashburn. However, despite the promise, the trio was short-lived due to various factors, including injuries and internal dynamics.

What followed for Jackson was a journeyman’s career, as he played for 12 different NBA teams, which included stints with the 76ers, Warriors, Trail Blazers, and Rockets, among others. Despite the frequent relocations, Jackson consistently proved his worth on the court, often providing a scoring punch and veteran presence.
