From substitute to superstar, only 5 people in NBA can do it

1- Steve Nash: Nash overcame doubts about his athleticism and potential to become one of the best point guards in the league. Despite not winning a championship and having subpar defense, his strengths were evident.

2 - James Harden: Harden's rise to stardom began with the Rockets. In his 8 years with the team, he won an MVP award and achieved All-NBA First Team honors six times.

3 - Giannis Antetokounmpo: Currently the best two-way player in the NBA, Giannis dominates offense and defense. His MVP and DPOY awards in one season parallel Michael Jordan.

4 - Nikola Jokic: Jokic, the lowest-drafted MVP, lacks athleticism but possesses unique skills. He has won two MVPs, led his team to a championship, and earned the Finals MVP title.

5 - Kobe Bryant: Kobe made a name for himself with his defense and unleashed his offensive talents after the "OK" team breakup. He dominated as the best shooting guard in the NBA, winning 5 championships. These five players transformed from benchwarmers to superstars through hard work and determination, solidifying their place in NBA history.
