High Risers: A History of Tall Sock All-Stars

Michael Cooper

TEAM: Los Angeles Lakers
CAREER:
 1978–1991
COMPLEX SAYS:
OK, so young'ns may only remember Cooper for the famous "Rock the Baby" poster dunk that Dr. J put on him. But Cooper was actually the 1987 Defensive Player of the Year, named to five All-Defensive First Teams, and won five rings with the Lake Show in the '80s. Good D, FTW. Pause.
