Whether they're really solid backups or laughable athletes, there are certain players who belong on sports' B-team. These 15 would be perfect for an overall B-team in sports.
The underachieving defensive tackle just can't find a landing spot in the NFL. He's been embarrassing at times and definitely deserves a spot on the B-team.
One of the most notable bench players in the NBA, Lamar Odom could be a star on the B-team. Like a decent varsity player playing on the junior varsity team, he could potentially dominate.
Brewer is another guy who has always been a key role player with the teams he's played on. He could do the same thing on the B-team, because he's not supremely talented but he's still important.
As the backup of Tom Brady for the last several years, Ryan Mallett is the ultimate B-team player. Although he may be ready to get to the A-team soon, for now he's definitely a starter on the B-team.
Cousins realistically could be the starter for the Redskins, but more than likely he will be headed to another team in the near future. However, for now he's been seasoned to be a backup and thus belongs on the B-team.
Redick is one of the most beloved bench players in the NBA and for good reason. He's a three-point sharpshooter and would fit in perfectly out on the wing for the B-team.
Curry really could've been a star in the NBA, but multiple problems derailed his career. Have no fear, Eddy; there's a spot for you on the B-team.
Once a star in the NBA, it has been a while since Carter's career fizzled out. As an old man now, he would be perfect for the B-team.
Haynesworth is another player who once seemed destined for superstardom but never realized his true potential. As long as he can pass the fitness test, the B-team has a spot reserved for him.
One of the better sixth men in the modern NBA, Crawford can shoot with the best of them. Since he doesn't have much starting experience, the B-team is a perfect spot for him.
In recent years Smith has become a joke as he can't even shoot from the outside any longer. While he tries to recover from his poor seasons, the B-team will take good care of him.
One of the bigger disappointments in recent NFL history, Leinart still knows how to party. He could bring some fun and marginal talent to the B-team, and they'd be happy to have him.
Remember when Anthony was starting at center for the Heat when they had LeBron, Wade and Bosh? Me too, but now he should be playing for the B-team regardless of how little talent he has.
There may be no better player for the B-team than Tim Tebow. One of the marks of a B-teamer is hustle and hard work, and those are two things Tebow will never run out of.
Scalabrine is probably the most beloved bench warmer in sports history. People around the NBA love him and his former fanbases love him even more. For the sake of selling tickets, the B-team needs Scalabrine on its side.
