15. Steve Kerr

Steve Kerr is nowhere near the caliber of player that most of the players on this list were, but his play off the bench combined with him being a five-time NBA Champion is worth noting. Kerr played in the NBA from 1988 until 2003, and he averaged 6.0 points, 1.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.5 steals per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from downtown.

Kerr was a sniper from downtown, and any team can use a solid shooter at point guard. He shot 45.4 percent from downtown for his career, and his basketball IQ and ability to selflessly play his role were solid. One of the top moments of Kerr's career was when he hit a game-winning jump shot against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals, and he was a good compliment to Michael Jordan.

Kerr was an elite role player for the Chicago Bulls' dominant run during the 1990s, and the Mavs were one selection away from picking him in the 1988 NBA Draft as Dallas selected Jose Vargas with the No. 49 overall pick and Kerr was selected by the Suns with the No. 50 pick.

Kerr is now better known for his coaching as he helped lead the Golden State Warriors to multiple NBA Championships, but his play on the floor is often underrated and he was always great in his role.
