8. Boris Diaw
After 14 seasons in the NBA, Diaw finally walked away with his head held high. In 2006, he won the NBA’s Most Improved Player award. But he would go on to further success eight years later when he won the NBA championship with the San Antonio Spurs. This makes him one of the few foreign players on this list to win a ring.
The power forward started off his career in his native France before the Atlanta Hawks drafted him. Furthermore, he has represented France on the international stage, winning the EuroBasket title in 2013. During his championship-winning year, he led the series in total assists and was second in rebounds.
