36. Jason Collins

Jason Collins did not do a lot of the things that would get you noticed in a box score.  Playing over 500 Games with the Nets, Collins would only average 4.3 Points and 4.4 Rebounds per Game but what he did do incredibly well was screen, defend the post and was praised for his leadership and high basketball I.Q.  Collins played with New Jersey from the 2001/02 season when he arrived as a draft day trade from Houston until he was traded to Memphis in February until 2008 but he would return at the end of his career (2014) for 24 Games.  It was notable as he had come out as gay only a month prior making him the first openly gay player in the Big Four of American Sports.
