15. Jason Thompson

Even on championship caliber teams can their be forgotten players. When the Golden State Warriors were chasing down 73 wins in the 2015-16 season, Jason Thompson was along for the ride.

He didn’t last the entire year and would eventually end up with the Toronto Raptors. Thompson was a high pick in the draft and came into the league with a lot of promise with the Sacramento Kings.

Unfortunately, he ended up like most Kings draft picks and didn’t live up to his potential. He then started to bounce around the league and eventually ended up playing for Golden State in a year they went to the NBA Finals.

He would be waived during the season and wouldn’t get a chance to experience making history with the team. He didn’t miss out on a championship after the team lost in the NBA Finals, but every player wants a chance to experience that level.

He didn’t play the following season in the NBA and instead played overseas in China. Playing globally will happen to a lot of fringe players after they flame out of the league. A forgotten Warrior on a history-making team was he.
