4. Kurt Rambis
Kurt Rambis was always the coach’s favorite player, he never backed down from a challenge and always made the hustle plays. Rambis was part of the Showtime Lakers and played for the team from his rookie season, 1981-1982, up until the 1987-1988 season.
Rambis however retuned to the Lakers for his last two seasons in the NBA. Rambis did not have stellar stats, but he did not care about what showed up on the box score. Rambis did what he was told, if he had to score he would or if he had to get rebounds, he would. Rambis was all about hustle and doing whatever the team needed.
During his time with the Lakers, Rambis never averaged more than 10 points per game, or more than 10 rebounds per game. He didn’t have to score much because he played along side Magic and Kareem. Rambis won four titles in his career, all coming with the Lakers.
Kurt Rambis is considered won of the best power forwards in Laker history because of the way he played and his never-back-down mentality. Look back at history and you can see that every team had a player like Kurt Rambis.
