19. Rik Smits
A glance at this towering Dutchman should tell you that he was a natural fit for basketball. Standing 7′ 4″, Smits found into his way onto the court despite soccer being more popular in the Netherlands. However, he made his way into the game and found himself playing at the highest level in the NBA.
Smits spent the entirety of his 12-season career with the Indiana Pacers. He was an NBA All-Star in 1998. That was probably the best moment of his time in the US. Despite never winning an NBA Championship, he did make the Finals in 2000, where the Pacers lost to the Lakers.
