Sam Cassell was a stud point guard for years playing alongside Hakeem in Houston and Ray Allen and Glen Robinson in Milwaukee. Nabbing two rings early, Cassell never really got the chance to play on a major contender again until his final season with Boston and their Big Three of KG, Pierce, and Ray Allen. There he played 18 minutes a game and even less in the playoffs. He managed to snag a third and final ring before becoming an assistant coach.
