Yep, that about sums it up.Originally posted by <b>R-Star</b>!
Calling Scottie a role player is like calling Kobe a role player.
Exactly...by definintion, a "role player" does not have a huge impact on a team. That's what a role player is; a player who isn't a major option. So, really what is being asked is..."Who was the most significant insignificant player on a championship team?"Originally posted by <b>TheRifleman</b>!
Dennis, Danny were starters and not the standard "role players" who usually come off the bench and provide either offense or defense or sometimes both! ONLY Horry & Coop (especially as Silk was still there in the early to mid 80s) on your list haven't been starters and actually more of a "role player".
You'll have to come up with some more real "role players" for your poll. Sam Cassell was one for the Rockets - he came off the bench as a role player! Bill Walton came off the bench for the Celtics, as did Havlicek, for years on the Celtics. Bob McAdoo also came off the bench and was a role player for the Lakers. Rick Mahorn came off the bench for the Pistons and was definitely a role player.
