Shawn Marion (Kevin Johnson and Kyrie Irving)

The Suns hit the jackpot when they drafted Shawn Marion. Acquiring a Swiss army knife player who doesn't run out of energy on the court was their first step into developing a dynasty in the 2000s. In Marion's rookie year, the 1999-00 season, he had the chance to play with Kevin Johnson. It was Johnson's last season in Phoenix after coming out of retirement.

The young forward helped the team reach the postseason in his first year. But they lost in the second round against the Lakers that year. That was the start of a project for the Suns that led them to form the Seven-Seconds or Less squad.

After bouncing around the league and winning a title with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, Marion joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in his final year. The Cavs had a young Kyrie Irving who was on a mission to prove himself and help Cleveland win the title. LeBron James was also in the mix as he returned to the team that drafted him.

Throughout Marion's career, he had the opportunity to play with elite guards. He played with Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Dwyane Wade, Johnson and Irving.
