Washington Wizards

Marcin Gortat, Poland

The seven-footer known as the Polish Hammer, Marcin Gortat has been the Washington Wizards’ best big man during their recent resurgence as a franchise.

One of the top screen-setters in the league and an excellent finisher on dives to the basket, Gortat has been able to form a solid partnership with his point guard, John Wall, since joining the team. (At least on the basketball court.)

Gortat already ranks Top 10 in both blocks and rebounds in Wizards history, despite only having been there for five seasons.
