41. Tony Battie
Playing for the Boston Celtics for five and a half seasons, Tony Battie was never going to be confused with an elite player, but the Center was strong at the little details that did not appear on a stat sheet.  Averaging 6.8 Points and 5.9 Rebounds per Game, Battie was an expert screen setter and a master of floor placement, which was why the Celtics held onto him for so long and he would have a 14-year NBA career.
