27. Mychal Thompson

A former No. 1 pick, Thompson spent the tail end of his career in L.A., helping the Lakers pick up championships in 1987 and 1988. In the '87 Finals against Boston, Thompson reached deep into the recesses of his memory to stop Kevin McHale, using defensive tricks he learned from the Celtics' big man in their college days together at the University of Minnesota.
