#10 Eddie Jones
There was a time when fans debated whether Jones or Kobe Bryant was the better complement to Shaquille O’Neal in Los Angeles. A similar debate ensued a few years later in Miami, where fans argued whether the Heat should make Jones their franchise player or if they should turn the page and feature a young and up-and-coming Dwyane Wade. The Lakers and Heat, obviously, made the right decisions as it relates to these two topics. However, that shouldn’t take anything away from what Jones accomplished. Born and raised in Pompano Beach, Jones was a three-time NBA All-Star and a tremendous defender.
