Dude is like the next Shane Battier when it comes to being elite glue guys. I hate descriptions like "role player" because technically, everyone has a role to play, maybe tireless workhorse would be a more apt description. Anyways, if hes not your guy, who is? I used to have Amir Johnson up here but hes been injured lately. Matt Barnes has completely lost his shot and without that, hes not holding anything together.


So who are the best glue guys in the league. Best role player, whatever fits . You know it when you see it.

Amir is one of my favourites without a doubt. I also still have love for Landry.

Green has been my favourite Warrior since his rookie year, never mind my favourite "role player"

Tucker last year and Beverley deserve a mention.

I'll be intrigued to see what Clipper and Houston fan thinks after Green elbowed some people to prevent the 3 point record being broken and he's always in Griffins face.

...Part of the reason I like him so much haha.

Agree on Green and I like the Taj Gibson mention. Not in the league anymore but Lindsey Hunter was the first guy I thought of. I love me a PG that will tirelessly press you full court every possession.

I'm going to give a shout out to Nate Robinson as well... that's just me though.

That was Beverly that he suckered but I'd lay any punk blame on Preacher Man. Never read the scripture that said that clothes lining an opponent when they are owning you is very Christ like, but whatever. I guess it was in the Old Testament.

Green tried to mix it up with Harden a few years ago and they got in a flopping contest and things got heated (from what I remember; it was probably worse in my mind) and I kept saying "You're too important for your team to get baited by this fat scrub" so now every time I see DG I think "Fat Scrub" although I know he's not. Good player.

Does Nic Batum count?

I cannot stand Green and the way he carries himself but he's forsure one of the best 'role players' out there. Dude is a beast all around now.

I still like Nic Batum the best right now. Or Leonard in last years finals.

I have always liked guys who seem like they would not even be in the league if they did not try harder than everyone else. Not super athletic and not particularly great at anything; just pure hustle. Brian Cardinal is the one who comes to mind for me, not sure who that person would be today.

My favourite for sure. Batum counts also.

Maybe Nick Collison. I do not hear about him as much anymore, but he has made a career out of out hustling everyone else. I always hated my team playing him because I could never understand how he was always able to out rebound other players. Dude has heart, that is what I want in a role player.

He's a chump. Probably hate him more than anyone in the NBA. Dirty player's are always pieces of **** in my book. Would never want him on my team

I'd put him in the same category as someone like Bruce Bowen, another guy I have ZERO respect for

Not gonna lie, totally forgot that happened.

As for favourite role players, green is up there. I'm also a fan of Jimmy Butler.

Bruce Bowen is the male NBA version of that crazy german boxer ***** at the end of Million Dollar Baby. POS.

Does Korver count? If so he would be my choice. I was a fan of Matt Barnes.

Green is probably a player you would HATE to go up against but would love on your team. His defensive effort energizes the team and the scoring this year is a huge plus.

I love green but mine is Amir Johnson. He is incredible to watch on a day to day.

Homer pick but a guy who plays his role well is Tony Allen. I HATED him up until he signed with the grizz. Now he's a fan favorite

No he starts and gets around 25-39 mpg. People were naming odom and Beverly, so I named a guy similar to them

Larry Sanders.

dare I even say he's a role player? posters all over this forum have been dumping on him for over a year. people scoff at his contract, and fans in the Lakers forum shook their heads when I suggested buying him low last season using expirings and picks. most NBA fans don't understand how important a defensive anchor is. true, 75th percentile guys.

with the new CBA, the final year or two of his contract will be an absolute steal. he is a great anchor. the man can defend the paint for the bucks. I know were only 10 games in but the Bucks are 2nd in defensive rating (they finished dead last in 2014). When he is tuned in and focused, he's one of the leagues great under the radar game changers.

he's really not a role player. he's just a greatly undervalued anchor. the Bucks allow 98 points per 100 possessions, which leads the league. they allow 89 per 100 possessions while Sanders is on the floor. the length of Giannis and the size of their other front court players help, but he deserves the bulk of the credit for what is going on in Milwaukee.

i don't know what to do with the term either.
