    Those are some of the main candidates, yea. I would also add dudes like Moses Malone, Reggie Miller, even Elvin Hayes...

    Number 1? I would probably say Kareem... I mean, he was still doing things like "putting up" one of the GOAT Finals performances at 38 years old, amongst many other "things"...

    No doubt KG has more mileage. I just don't think his body held up well enough. He was breaking down in 2009, tbh. Tim was too at one point (2010 was a low point in terms of physical shape), but he did some Nash type ish where he got and stayed in phenomenal shape.

    It is kinda sad seeing Garnett lately. He didn't play last night so we're never gonna see him and Tim suit up against each other again. I really hope the Nets make the Playoffs so he can at least go out on a positive note.
    KG has exactly 122 regular seasons ahead of TD and played 5138 more minutes in the regular season.

    Duncan does have 91 more playoff games played and a total of 3619 more playoff minutes than KG.

    So KG played a total of 1519 more minutes and 31 games more than TD.

    Not as many games as I originally thought so I guess this does put TD ahead of KG at least on my longevity list.

    Miller is a good candidate, I thought about Moses but I feel like he fell off pretty hard after 92 I think? But then again, he did have around 16-17 season under his belt by 92 so I'll add him in as well.

    Hayes is a beast as well, playing no less than 80 games a season in his whole NBA career. Definitely belongs in the list.

    Ray Allen deserves a mention. So does dirk nowitzki. Dirk is still incredibly effective even though he's not what he used to be. He'll be 12th or so all time in games played at the end of next year depending on how many rest games he gets

    Kareem with his unstoppable skyhook.

    he won five titles in his thirties and early forties.

    Kareem scored more points (1863 pt) than Magic Johnson (1738 pt) during their championship runs.

    oldest player in history to win the FMVP (1985, at age 38), and perennial rim protector of the Showtime Lakers.


    Kareem played 66,297 minutes (regular season plus playoffs), won six NBA titles, six MVP and two FMVP

    Lebron in 5 years would be the undisputed answer for this topic.
