Scorers, rebounders and defensive stoppers may steal the headlines in the NBA, but you can't overlook the importance of the intangibles contributors.
These 10 players are the best of the best when it comes to filling the "glue guy" role, playing with constant energy, infusing teammates with desire and providing cerebral play on the court. They're the players who hold value, have locker-room presence and essentially serve as coaches on the court.
What they do might not show up in the box scores after the games, but their impact is certainly felt in the win column.
As you'll see, the best intangibles guys usually happen to be on title contenders. Their services are far more valuable in the championship hunt than in the race amongst bottom feeders.
