  1. Luke Burnett

Guard Luke Burnett might not be the powerhouse that is Chaney Johnson, but he still is a valuable member of the team. If a basket wasn’t made by Johnson, it ended in Burnett’s 341 points this season. Burnett’s real strength lies in three-point shots, having landed 78 of them over the course of the season, more than any other Charger.

  1. Daniel Saylor

Occasionally, what matters most isn’t scoring points but keeping the opponent from being able to score. When a situation like that arises, the Chargers rely on forward #45 Daniel Saylor to block the goals. With 14 blocks this season, Saylor is the team’s most prolific blocker, keeping the opposition from landing baskets that might deliver them victory.

  1. Max Shulman

The Charger’s local Jack of All Trades, #33 Max Shulman is not the greatest at any part of the game. He makes up for this by being the second or third greatest in almost everything else. With 308 points, 63 three-point goals, 127 rebounds, and 58 assists, Shulman fills any role required. He lets the Chargers keep up the pressure even when their best players start to flag during the ending portions of the game.
