Published on September 10th, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 9,843 views

The only thing undrafted Ben Wallace was really known for after his first 3 seasons in the NBA was getting posterized by a young Kobe Bryant. He then spent a season in Orlando before they traded him to Detroit for Grant Hill. And while Grant spent much of the next 5 years injured, Ben Wallace turned into a star – a 4 time All-Star and NBA champion. He was also a 4-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year award winner and made an All-NBA (2nd & 3rd) team 5 times, while averaging less than 10 points a game for the Pistons.

He would play 6 more productive seasons in the NBA with the Bulls, Cavs and Pistons. The Pistons also retired his number in 2016.
