Default The curious case of Derek Fisher. Was there ever a role player who lasted so long?

Derek Fisher has been a role player for 17 years.

Most (and as far as I know, all) players who lasted 17 years were able to do so because they had amazing skills...they were at one point all-stars and then later as their skills and athleticism dwindled they hung on for a few more years as role players.



Try to name another player besides Fisher who lasted 17 years and never even came close to an all-star team. 1...2...3...Go!

Kevin "Fresh" Willis played in 23 NBA seasons, 1,424 games, 891 starts, 38,362 minutes ...

Winner?

EDIT: All-Star in '92... Damn it! Can't believe he made an All-Star team.

Dale Davis made it 16. And I don't care if Dale Davis made a lifetime achievement All Star game, guy was a role player. An outstanding one, but a role player.
