NBA: Active Players with the Most Minutes Played Total (Regular + Postseason)
Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett have clocked over 50,000 minutes if you include the postseason. Wow. Ray Allen and Tim Duncan will reach that mark in 2013-14. How much can they possibly have left – and Kobe’s coming off that Achilles’ tear.
You have to include the postseason if you’re really going to determine the true mileage on these guys’ tires.
For example, Kobe Bryant has played 45,390 regular season minutes in his career – second most amongst actives, but since the Los Angeles Lakers make the playoffs pretty much all the time, Bryant has another 8,641 postseason minutes under his feet – most amongst actives. That’s a whopping number. In fact, it’s just 210 minutes off Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s all-time record of 8,851.
Today, it’s the top 20 active players with the most total career minutes played: regular season + postseason.
The top seven in the regular season are the same here, with just the top two switched up. After that, you can see where some players’ playoff experience has really upped their overall totals.Follow @VinGetz
