For years when you thought of Soviet born basketball players they were faceless drones, but that would change with the likable (and Ivan Drago lookalike), Andrei Kirilenko who would become a star with the Utah Jazz.
Advanced stat gurus in Basketball loved Kirilenko whose efficient play and position versatility made him a huge asset as a basketball player and while he was only an All Star once, he put together a career that puts him closer to the discussion than you think, especially when you consider his international play with Russia that saw him win a Bronze at the 2012 Olympics and a Gold in the 2007 Euro Basket Championship.
