RANKED: All 26 Players in the NBA Finals from Least Important to LeBron

26. Dahntay Jones – Cavaliers


His purpose in this series will solely be for a potential heated exchange with Matt Barnes in garbage time. Everybody wants to see it. Nobody wants to see Jones actually play meaningful minutes.

25. James Jones – Cavaliers


He was a sharpshooting, role-playing contributor for LeBron James’ teams of yesteryear. Now, the former Miami product has been relegated to cheerleading from the bench. Although he doesn’t get many minutes nowadays, Jones does hold the distinction of playing in seven straight NBA Finals. He seems to be LeBron’s lucky charm at this point.

24. James Michael McAdoo – Warriors


The athletic big has shown glimpses of promise during his short career. He’s got size, length and enough springiness to warrant a look as a rim-runner, but the Warriors already have JaVale McGee in that role. If McAdoo is getting minutes, it either means it’s going really well for the Warriors… or really bad.
