Who is the greatest over-achiever in NBA history?

For me my pick is Ben Wallace

He can’t shoot, he can’t create his own shots (he averaged 6 PPG for his career), he was undrafted, he was undersized for a center at only 6′9 and yet despite all those disadvantages, his hustle, strength, tenacity and elite defense allowed him to be a 5x All-NBA player, 4x DPOY, Hall of Famer and his single greatest accomplishment I’d say is anchoring the 2004 Pistons team as their only all-star that year and upsetting the Lakers in the Finals which had 4 HoFers on it.

All from a guy who had no offense, was undersized and was undrafted. Pretty impressive right?
