You're not usually going to see an Al Jefferson play in the highlight reels, but don't sleep on him. The center has a solid post-game, putting up double-double numbers in 2006-07 and respectable stats now with the Jazz. He's one of the more talented players on that Utah squad, but his team-first attitude is something the NBA could use a lot more of. He's one of the more underrated players in the league.
