Don't let those numbers fool you, Mark Jackson has always been one of the most slept on. From getting traded from his hometown Knicks in favor of Rod Strickland to making only one All-Star team to turning the Golden State Warriors around as a first-time head coach, Action Jackson is still proving people wrong. He played in 17 seasons and was a key contributor on many Knicks and Pacers playoff teams, including a 2000 Finals appearance with the latter. Jackson also sits at No. 3 on the all-time assists list. Mama there goes that man.
