14. Pau Gasol

Feb. 1, 2008 could go down as the day the Lakers entered into their fourth dynasty, thanks to the acquisition of a scruffy-bearded big man from Spain. In less than two full seasons in L.A., Gasol has helped the Lakers to two Finals appearances and one ring while the team has, amazingly, not lost three games in a row since he donned the purple and gold.
