Honorable Mention:

Player: John Salley.

The Deal: Spider possesses a nice comedic touch.

Player: Michael Jordan.
Credit(s): Space Jam & host Saturday Night Live.
The Deal:
His Airness was impressive in Space Jam. Of course, he played himself, which wasn’t a stretch.

#5) Player: LeBron James.
Credit(s): Host of ESPY Awards & Saturday Night Live.
The Deal: The NBA’s version of Billy Crystal because the King can host an event.

#4) Player:  Alex English.
Credit(s): Amazing Grace and Chuck.
The Deal: English gives an understated performance.

#3) Player: Ray Allen.
Credit(s): He Got Game.
The Deal: The sweet-shooting two guard is a perfect swish in this Spike Lee joint.

#2) Player: Rick Fox.
Credit(s): Oz.
The Deal: Fox has done a bunch of stuff. But he stood out in this critically acclaimed cable show. We could only show the trailer because all of Oz’s clips contain curse words and violence.

#1) Player: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Credit(s): Game Of Death.
The Deal: Like Fox, Jabbar has done a ton of movies and television shows. But his one-on-one fight scene with Bruce Lee is epic.
