    Correct answer is Ryan Bowen.

    About five years ago, when Chuck Norris facts were popular, my friends and I made a spoof using Ryan Bowen and made a Facebook group and I just dug it out. Some are lame.

    Ryan Bowen once scored 82 points.

    Ryan Bowen once scored 14 points in 35 seconds.

    Ryan Bowen once jumped and touched the top of the backboard... with his testicles.

    Ryan Bowen is the inspiration behind Adam in the Creation of Man of the Sistine Chapel.

    It takes a bowl made exclusively for Ryan Bowen which uses wood that can be only found on the top of the K-9 peak in the Himalayas, embedded with diamonds, to achieve his sexy hair-cut.

    Ryan Bowen signed his first shoe deal at age 2.

    Currently a trade which would send Ryan Bowen to the LA Lakers for Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom, Smush Parker, fillers, the next 10 LA 1st round draft picks, and cash consideration is in the works.

    The sad part about Ryan Bowen is that he actually played. He started at PF in the playoffs for us so I wouldnt consider him a benchwarmer.

    For the people who say Yao = 100% correct lol.

    End of story.

    I like Craig Ehlo and Scotty Brooks. Both were white, as any 12th man should be, American, and both went on to bigger things after they left here. Brooks' whining about being let go was entertaining, which is the primary function of the white 12th man.

    Go ahead, tell me you never participated in the trash-time calls for the white guy at the end of the bench... of course, it's less of a joke now that the Euros are coming over here.

    Wow, totally forgot about Scotty! I still have my Fleer 94 Scott Brooks card, i believe he's shooting a Luis Scola style scooped layup.

    Scotty Brooks.

    Stuck behind Kenny and Sam on the depth chart but the greatest benchwarmer we ever had, The one moment that stands out to me, I cannot remember the playoff game during the Championship run, but it was at the Summit. It was late in the 4th quarter and there was a bad call against us and Rudy grabbed Scotty who was standing next to him,the whole time staring down the official with fury and almost shook him like a rag doll...Great stuff..

    Flyin Ryan Bowen was a complete disaster on the break....Bill Worrell used to get so excited when Bowen would finish with a dunk or shall a say hard layup

    Really my vote is for Charles Jones.

    Was initially leaning towards Charles Jones...but my vote was swayed due to my lunch...


    I'll say Two Sandwiches...Thomas Hamilton.
