The Big Dog.

Although Antoine Carr spent only four seasons with the Utah Jazz and started only 12 games in that entire span, the 6-foot-9 veteran down low provided a little bit of everything off the bench across what still stands as the best four-year stretch in franchise history.

Two NBA Finals appearances. An average of more than 60 wins per season.

Plus, take into consideration the fact Carr was generally seen as a fan favorite and that his exit to the Houston Rockets at age 36 just so happened to mark the start of Utah’s gradual decline from being a legit perennial title threat.
