Third pick in the 2013 Draft, Otto Porter played for teams like Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic, in addition to Warriors, Raptors and Jazz. Even with all this time in the league, he suffered a lot from injuries, which resulted in the winger playing only 527 games, averaging 10.3 points and 4.9 rebounds. The player always showed potential, but when it seemed like he was going to take off, he got injured.

In 2017, he finished fourth in the voting for the most improved player award, but he never managed to play a prominent role in the NBA. In 2019, after being traded to the Bulls, he gained space and the chance to produce more. But he played 15 games for the Illinois franchise the rest of that season and was injured again the next. Porter had the main chance to win an NBA title with the Warriors, where, coming off the bench, he recovered part of his best career moment and played an important role, especially in the attack, culminating in the trophy.
