He's not really a role player yet, but he's a bench player...Donte Greene. For some reason, I love the guy and always pull for him when he comes. 5 points in 7 minutes last night. :rock:

Trevor Ariza. This dude is underrated. He hustles and his D would be appreciated on any team. His shot is getting there too.

Nate Robinson and AK-47. They are the most under-rated players that could be starters. Travis Outlaw too.

Ariza is a very solid role player. He smoked the Warriors last night. :(

As for my favorite role player, it's Craig Smith of the Timberwolves.

Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike for the Warriors

No worries, to each his own. I just love Donte's attitude. He is one of the happiest people I have ever seen. When they told him they were sending him to Reno to the D-League he was actually really excited. He started talking about how he couldn't wait to drive there and see the scenery of the Sierra Nevadas. And his show...the Donte Greene show is awesome.

He's also probably the first NBA player that has publicly said that he loved the city of Sacramento and wanted to retire there before he even played a game.

And as far as ballhogging goes...he doesn't get on the court long enough to do that so we'll see.

Ariza is the man. His improvement has been a major factor in the Laker's improvement, but he isn't getting the credit. And thank god we have him, I feel like both Vujacic and Farmar have regressed from last year.

Trevor Ariza and Derek Fisher are my favourites for the Lakers. From around the league, I'm a big fan of Ronny Turiaf, Udonis Haslem, Shane Battier and Mike Miller. Just guys who hustle and play with energy...

I was going to mention Tayshaun, I don't know if people consider him a role player or a star though :shrug:

I completely forgot about Mutombo...

I consider him on the bubble, not quite a star, but a very good role player and definitely one of the better defenders in the league....

Reddick make a comeback?!?
A) he never did anything to come back from in the NBA
B) he finally getting minutes and doing fine.
I have always Like E House, ever since his college days when I stayed home sick and saw him score 60+

Leon Powe and Eddie House from the C's.

James Posey as well.

If I'm picking someone that was never affiliated with the C's, I'd go with Nate Robinson.

Joel Pryzbilla is my favorite role player. He's always accepting of his role, and is the defensive anchor for the Blazers. They should have started him and made Oden come off the bench.
