29. Trevor Ariza

Would the Lakers have gotten past Denver in the 2009 Western Conference Finals if it wasn't for Ariza? Turning inbound defense into an art form, Ariza made like Rayden in Mortal Kombat, seemingly morphing to the right spot to secure game-changing steals late in both Games 1 and 3. He wasn't in L.A. long, but fans will talk about his contributions for a long time. (Noah Graham/NBAE/Getty Images)
