A player has no losing season in his career (5+ years in NBA)

How many players has no losing season in his career?

Shaq and Duncan have no losing seasons?

I remember that KG lost 56 games in one season.

Shaq and Duncan are the only franchise players that haven't played a losing season I believe. Maybe some roleplayers I can't think of off the top, have played on only winning teams.

Of course, I'm only counting guys who have been in the league for awhile. Dwyane Wade hasn't been on a losing team, but it's only his 2nd year.

Baron Davis and Kobe never did before this season and Kobe theoretically isn't out of it yet.

Bonzi Wells never has, since he played on Portland (unless Portland made the playoffs with a losing record). 'Sheed would, except for his rookie year

Malone and Stockton have no losing season in their career. How about Jordan and Pippen? Bird and Magic?

Yeah, Uncle Cliffy was on winning teams every year in Portland, Phoenix and Detroit before he went to Golden State.

Gary Payton ? He was on a .500 or better team every year with the Sonics until 2002-03, when he was traded to Milwaukee which finished 42-40. I guess he counts...

Tim Duncan, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant (so far) and I'm not sure about other players. But, those guys for sure have never had a losing record in their careers.

Robert Horry 6 rings and always wanted by contenders due to his intangibles.


Tim Duncan surs has been championship contender ever since he came in the league, 2 MVPs, 2 Rings, 6 All-NBA team selection, 2 Finals MVPs, 7 All-Stars..... whoa!


Shaquille O'neal, with the exception of his rookie year, he has been on a winning team since.

Just kidding.


Give it up for Jonathan Bender, who's never endured a losing season on the bench with Austin Croshere. Jeff Foster, too (All IND). Jermaine O'Neal (POR and IND).

Devean George, but he'll probably go down with Kobe (LAL).

Scott Padgett (UTA and HOU).

Malik Rose (CHA and SAS), but he'll go down this year. San Antonio broke his streak by trading him to the Knicks!

Arvydas Sabonis--OK, so he's retired, but he deserves a mention (POR).

Peja, of course (SAC).

Wally Szczerbiak (MIN).

That's about it for recent players, I believe.
