IBN Notes: Undrafted coming out of Virginia Union, Ben Wallace worked his way from hard-working summer-camp invitee to hard-working bench-warmer to to hard-working starter to hard-working perennial all-star. Do you see the common denominator? Blessed with strong hands, crazy jumps, and a body out of video games, Ben Wallace combined those traits with his work ethic and hustle to make him the ultimate team player. IBN Facts:  Is the only undrafted player to ever start in an NBA All-Star Game. Three-time defensive player of the year (2002, 2003 and 2005) only Dikembe Mutombo has been awarded with more.
