Jamison played 16 seasons in the NBA after being drafted fourth overall in 1998 by the Toronto Raptors (traded to the Golden State Warriors on draft night). He was a two-time All-Star, and the 2004 Sixth Man of the Year with the Dallas Mavericks.

Jamison also had stints with the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers, averaging 18.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 1,083 career appearances.

Chambers had his number retired by the Phoenix Suns in 1999 after playing five seasons with the franchise. He also competed for the San Diego Clippers, New York Knicks, and Utah Jazz, while having cups of coffee with the Charlotte Hornets and Philadelphia 76ers.

He's perhaps best known for his infamous slam dunk over point guard Mark Jackson in 1989, with his head rising above the rim.
