John Stockton Played More Games For One Team (The Utah Jazz) Than Anyone In NBA History

John Stockton Played More Games For One Team (The Utah Jazz) Than Anyone In NBA History

Who is “Mr. L.A. Laker?” It’s Kobe Bryant. No one has suited up for more games in the Purple and Gold (or the Minneapolis Lakers‘ Blue and Gold) than Bryant.

And who is “Mr. Cleveland Cavalier?” Why, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, of course.

Wait, what?

Yes. No one has played more games for the Cavs than Ilgauskas.

Here’s every team’s “Mr. …,” the player who carried the banner more than anyone else: most games played for his team (+ two more). Five leaders are still playing today.
