Top 20 Players with the Most Games Played in NBA History

Robert Parish Played More Basketball Games Than Anyone in NBA History

Robert Parish Played More Basketball Games Than Anyone in NBA History

Jason Kidd‘s three-year contract with the New York Knicks could see the point guard become one of the top five players with the most NBA games ever played.

He and Kevin Garnett are the two actives on today’s list of cagers with the most regular-season games played in history.

The Chief, Robert Parish, tops them all. He’s the only player who’s appeared in over 1,600 games.

John Stockton played the most games for a single team, the Utah Jazz.

He, his courtmate Karl Malone, and seven more of these guys never won a title. They are noted with an asterisk.

Others, like Kidd and Gary Payton, journeyed until landing on a championship team late in their careers.
