2) Sean Elliott

Although he may be known more for being the San Antonio Spurs' color analyst for the last 20-plus seasons, Sean Elliott was an All-Star back in the 1990s. Elliott spent all but one of his 13 seasons in the NBA with the Spurs and was a key player on several great Spurs teams that featured Hall of Famer David Robinson and, later, Tim Duncan.

During the 1994–95 season, Elliott averaged an impressive 18.3 points and 6.3 rebounds, netting him his first of two All-Star appearances. Even still, he remained a steady contributor throughout his career and hit a memorable clutch shot on Memorial Day to help the Spurs clinch their first trip to the NBA Finals.

There, they easily dispatched the New York Knicks thanks to the dominant play of Duncan and the contributions of Elliot, who averaged 16.5 points and 6.5 rebounds during the five-game series.

He may not be a household name, but he managed to carve out an impressive career for himself considering he battled through kidney issues that eventually forced him to have a kidney transplant during his career. He later retired after the 2000-01 season, had his jersey retired by the Spurs, and remains a part of the organization nearly 35 years after they drafted him.
