Who am I?

Who am I?
A little bit of trivia.
Things arent always what they seem. . .

1. I am a pioneer for international basketball, achieving many firsts for a German-born player in the NBA. At 6'10 with one of the deadliest long-range games in the League, I've created problems for many a defense. After being drafted by Dallas, my first few seasons as a Mav were all promise, but over time I turned into a multiple-time All-Star and even an All-NBAer. Who am I?

2. A senior point guard out of Wake Forest, I was drafted shortly after another highly notable point guard who, like me, has since averaged double-digits in assists over a full season. Eventually becoming the Hornets' starting point, I soon proved to be essential to the team's success; my speed and ball-handling skills allow me to squeak through almost any defense. I've also made a name for myself stealing the ball. I got myself a gold medal playing for the U.S. National Men's Team. Who am I?

3. I was drafted by a small market in the mid-90's, but was immediately shipped via trade to the bright lights of Los Angeles. Among other things, in my rookie season I won the Slam Dunk Contest and cracked the All-Rookie second team. I've done some record-breaking things in the three-point shooting department, and I've gotten myself some Championship rings playing alongside a certain big fella you may know. You could say basketball is in my blood; my dad was an NBA All-Star. Who am I?

4. I was a First Team All-American in high school, where I led my team to two state championships. I came into LSU as the marquee center, and the attention I garnered there got me drafted by the Orlando Magic in 1991, where I averaged double digits right away. Since then, the main knock on me has been my playing shape and free throw shooting. Who am I and then tell me, which of the following teams did I go to after leaving Orlando?

1. Dirk 3. Kobe 4. Stanley

1. Dirk
3. Kobe
4. Stanley Roberts

#2 would appear to be Chris Paul but he came out as a sophomore it can't be him. I'm probably wrong about the first two as well but at least I got #4.

Hmm, seems someone else

Hmm, seems someone else already got it. I would've said Dirk, CP3, Kobe, and Shaq...although there are little facts in each that make me question
