Derek Fisher (L.A. Lakers, 1996)


Fisher has posted modest career numbers while playing for five teams over the course of 17 NBA seasons: 8.5 points, 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game. And yet he's won five NBA championships, always seeming to come up big when it counts.

Some of Fisher's finest performances have taken place in huge postseason games -- from his incredible turnaround shot with 0.4 seconds left to beat the Spurs in Game 5 of the 2004 Western Conference semifinals to his 11-point fourth quarter to help put away the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Fisher won't be remembered as one of the all-time individual greats but he'll certainly be remembered as a winner and a great find at 24.
