David Lee was drafted by the New York Knicks with the 30th pick in the 2005 NBA draft and almost immediately made a name for himself as one of the game's best rebounders. Lee was eventually dealt to the Golden State Warriors in July 2010 after the Knicks came to terms on a free-agent deal with Amar'e Stoudemire.
Statistically, Lee enjoyed his best season in 2009-10 as a member of the Knicks, when he averaged 20.2 points, 11.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. Lee made his only All-Star appearance that season but couldn't help the Knicks turn into a winning team.
Since being traded to the Warriors, though, Lee has become one of the NBA's more consistent power forwards and, entering play on Dec. 11, is averaging a healthy 18.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
More importantly, though, Lee's contributions have helped make the Warriors winners. Entering play on Dec. 11, the team has gone 14-7, and he's a major reason why.
