Over the next two months, we will be looking back at the 2008-09 season with breakdowns of all 14 players who were on the Hornets' roster during the playoffs. It begins with a review of Sean Marks' career-best campaign. The New Zealand native is a free agent this summer.

Marks surprised many observers by making a noticeable impact in 2008-09, compiling career-highs across the board. From a personal standpoint, I think everyone in the organization was thrilled to see the success of the amiable Marks, who took advantage of a rare chance during his nine-year NBA career to contribute.

"I'm proud of Sean," Hornets coach Byron Scott said during the playoffs. "When he came in, he said all he wanted was an opportunity. We told him he would get that here."
