14. Andres Nocioni
Nocioni took an unorthodox route to the NBA. He first played in his native Argentina before heading to Spain, where he became one of the best players in Europe. To cap it all off, he won Olympic gold in Athens. This brought him to the attention of NBA scouts and a deal with the Chicago Bulls quickly followed.
The Argentinian star spent most of his US career in Chicago, where he became a fan favorite. However, opposing teams criticized him for his aggressive style of play. Several confrontations resulted from this. But overall, he’s one of the best Argentinians to play in the NBA.
