Years: 2002-present
Teams: Spurs
All foreign players are soft and have no "real" game? Think again, son. Well, at least in regards the latter part. Manu quietly played a pivotal roll in the Spurs "Sleepy Dynasty" throughout the 2000s. He's only been named to two All-Star teams (2005, 2011) and his highest individual achievement was winning the Sixth Man of the Year award in 2008 but anyone who stayed up to watch the Spurs win those three titles knows that it really wouldn't have been possible without Manu. During San Antonio's 2005 and 2007 title runs Manu averaged 18 PPG 5 APG. Those numbers put a lot of well-known starting guards to shame.
