Chris Moore - 42
Despite being 6'9", 225 pounds, Chris Moore is known for doing the little things on the basketball court. From banging bodies inside to get a rebounding advantage to denying the ball to an opponent in the lane, Vikings fans learned to quickly appreciate Moore's blue-collar style of play. A skilled post player who is comfortable playing both facing or with his back to the basket, his efficiency -- he shot 56-percent from the floor last year -- makes him an offensive threat.
