7. Derrick McKey – 142 games

Derrick Mckey is the type of player that plays under the radar but still plays significantly. A two-time All-Defensive team recipient, he showed his brilliance on the defensive side with multiple teams. McKey was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics in which he played for five years. He then moved to the Indiana Pacers in 1993-1994 where his mentor was the legendary Celtic, Larry Bird. He helped the team reach the NBA Finals in 2000 against the overwhelmingly favored Los Angeles Lakers.

He established his game to be a fast-moving forward that can easily adjust from small to power forward. Hence the nickname, Heavy D. Surprisingly, McKey was also proficient on offense. He averaged 11 points per game with a field goal clip of 48%.

6. Charles Oakley – 144 games

This guy was a menace. If you ever go up against his team, you better be prepared to battle him. If you search his name on YouTube, you wouldn’t see any highlight reel but compilations of his heated moments. It goes to show how tough of a player he is.

His presence boosts his team’s character to not back down. He may be a former Jordan teammate, but his most fruitful years were with the Knicks. During his time in New York, he has become a model for toughness for them.
