With James Harden now headlining the Houston Rockets, the race for NBA's best off-the-bench spark plug is on.
Few role players enjoy the media attention and popularity of these 10 players.
Whether they are offensive-minded or contribute in several categories, their potential for gaudy numbers and highlight-reel plays make them relevant.
But, like with any facet of the game, a hierarchy exists among these combustible players.
Some are only one-dimensional players who can shoot or slash their way to double-digit outputs, and lack the all-around skill to consistently see meaningful minutes.
Others possess a diverse offensive portfolio, but their lack of attention on the defensive end keeps them relegated to their club's second unit.
Finally, there are a select few who are NBA starters masked as reserves. They may not open the evening's proceedings, but rest assured they will be around for the finale.
