23) Horace Grant

NBA veteran Horace Grant is largely remembered for his trademark goggles that he wore as a member of the Chicago Bulls, where he won three championships with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. He was also named to the 1993-94 All-Star team after a career year in which he averaged 15.1 points, and 11 rebounds per game.

However, he had a falling out with the Bulls and opted to sign with the Orlando Magic, surprising many at the time since they were still a new franchise. Then again, they had two stars in Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway, helping make it an easy decision. In Orlando, Grant flourished playing next to a dominant center and his defensive versatility and mid-range game proved to be the ideal fit for an upstart team.

Grant later helped the Magic beat the Bulls in the 1994–95 Eastern Conference semi-finals, handing the Bulls their only playoff series loss with Jordan during his final eight seasons with the team. Although Grant and the Magic lost in the NBA Finals, Grant would later join the 2000-01 Lakers and win a fourth championship, making him one of the most successful players in the last 40 years.
