Best Rocket (2010)

Shane Battier

Shane Battier is almost too perfect: a Duke pedigree, a guy who does plenty of charity work, an unselfish player who does the anonymous dirty work that helps his teammates get glory, a funny guy. He does have one glaring fault, though: YouTube evidence from a charity karaoke event shows the man has absolutely no ability to sing whatsoever. He is so terrible that it almost wipes out his on-court abilities. But when those under-the-radar abilities are enough to merit a glowing article in The New York Times Magazine (a publication that doesn't typically pay attention to the Houston Rockets), we guess it's a trade-off we'll have to settle for.
