Value of card: Coal
Key 1994-95 stat: 100 pounds gained
"It's a Christmas Miracle," starring Shawn Kemp: The Seattle SuperSonics sponsored a TV special during the 1995 holiday season, and superstar Shawn Kemp was the natural choice to play the lead role: Santa Claus. There were many reasons for this choice. Kemp, of course, had put on a couple of extra pounds by the mid-1990s. The notorious dunker was often seen flying through the air. He liked dressing in outlandish outfits and was even working on a beard. But the deciding factor? This was a player who loved his ho-ho-hos.
