I guess you could say John Starks had more heart than skill but he was a big reason why the Knicks were contenders during the ’90s. He always guarded the best player on the floor and electrified the home crowd with his style of play. Unfortunately, he was streaky and choked oftentimes when it matter most which frustrated those same fans that appreciated his hustle. He makes this list for being able to get under Reggie Miller and Michael Jordan’s skin, even though it wasn’t the smartest thing to do. He had good intentions for doing it, he just wanted to win.
