Toni Kukoc may not have lived up to the absurd amount of hype he received while still playing in Europe, but the 6-foot-10, extremely versatile lefty was a dynamic and outstanding player for the Bulls throughout the 1990’s. Kukoc was a key player on three of the six championship teams that Chicago put on the floor in that decade. One of those three championship rings came in 1995-96, when Kukoc was named the Sixth Man of the Year after starting just 20 games but still managing to average 13.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists while also shooting better than 40% from three point range. Kukoc never really found a permanent place in the starting lineup at any point in his career, having never started more than 55 games in a season. That didn’t stop him from ending his career with averages of 11.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists-per-game, some truly outstanding numbers for a starter, let alone a bench player.
