Becoming an NBA champion can be really hard, but players can enter into a championship situation luckily. After a very successful career, Stojakovic was pretty much on his way out of the league after being waived by the Toronto Raptors. Soon after, the three-time All-Star was picked up by the Dallas Mavericks, hit a few threes and got a championship for his troubles.
