What will these guys be remembered as?

With the Shaq/Duncan/Kobe/KG etc. era coming to a close, it got me to thinking. What team will the players that hopped around a lot through their career be associated with? Obviously guys like Duncan and Kobe have stayed put, but there's plenty of guys that moved around quite a bit. Will we remember Shaq as a Laker? KG as a Timberwolf or Celtic? I thought this could be kind of a cool way to reminisce over some of our older favoties.

Here's some names to throw around to get this started -

Shaq
Kevin Garnett
Tracy Mcgrady
Ray Allen
Steve Nash
Jason Kidd
Grant Hill
Dikembe Mutumbo

off the top of my head. I'm sure there's countless others that will be brought up throughout this thread, and even though he's not even close to being on the way out, why not -

LeBron

Have at it.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

Guys that have moved a bit, like Shaq, Ray Allen, they'll be remembered more for the unique aspects of their game rather than their time spent with one team. Although, I will say that despite any of Kobe's successes without the big fella, L.A. has a vested interest in possessing his reputation. He goes down as a Laker.

Dikembe, same idea. Although he'll be remembered for a lot more than his shotblocking.

KG's hard, man. That "fake tough guy" image is one he'll never fully shake, but he's a passionate dude and that can't be questioned when talking about his work ethic. I think he'll go down as a Celtic, but nobody's ever going to forget the 12 seasons he put in as a a member of the Timberwolves, especially Minnesota.

Steve Nash is a Sun, J-Kidd.. Nets. But, again, they'll be remembered more as incredible point guards.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

How is Ray Allen remembered as a Celtic but Kidd as a Net? Both those guys had their best years on their original teams and got a single trophy on their ring-seeking excursions.

TMac has to be for the Magic I'd say. Allen is a toss up. I think he's moved around too much to be remembered for a team. When I think back on him I'll probably picture him in a Sonics or Bucks jersey though I think.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

You're right about KG though, which is crazy. I mean he was the Wolves. To picture him in a Celtics jersey and not a Wolves feels strange.

Because I think that most people will remember Kidd for turning around the Nets and Allen for his tenure with the Big 3.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

I'm leaning towards Allen as a Sonic. I have no idea about KG.

KG is the hard one. I mean he was the Wolves, but now he is the Celtics.

Because of the championship I think he'll be remembered for the Celtics when it comes time to pick the primary for him.

Allen will be remembered for Jesus Shuttleworth.

McGrady is Magic.

Shaq will always be a Laker.

Amare would be an interesting topic.

Carter a Raptor?

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

Shaq - Lakers
Kevin Garnett - Celtics
Tracy Mcgrady - Magic
Ray Allen - I can't even answer this objectively. I think he'll just be remembered for the 3-point record more than any of his eras with a team
Steve Nash - Suns
Jason Kidd - Nets
Grant Hill - Pistons
Dikembe Mutumbo - Nuggets (Rockets by the younger crowd)
