There is only one player in NBA history that has played 22 seasons: Vince Carter.
It should come as no surprise then that he's had his fair share of teammates over the years. 261 of them to be exact if we're only including the ones he actually played alongside.
Carter made his NBA debut on Februay 5, 1999 against the Boston Celtics. The leading scorer in that game? Kevin Willis who at the age of 36 went for 28 points and 16 rebounds. To give you an idea of how long Carter has been in the NBA, Willis himself debuted in the fall of 1984.
The four players that Carter appeared alongside the most during the 2019-20 season are De'Andre Hunter, Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish. At the time of Carter's NBA debut with the Raptors, Hunter had not yet turned two, Young and Hurter had not yet turned one and Reddish was not yet born.
Take a minute and reflect back on his time with the Raptors, Nets, Magic, Suns, Mavericks, Grizzlies, Kings and Hawks. Can you name his top 20 teammates?
Here's a hint: none of the players pictured above are among the top 20.
Carter's been around for quite some time.
In reflecting back on his time in the NBA with eight different teams, Carter has seen it all and suited up against 1,668 different players. He also went undefeated alongside five different teammates: Briante Weber, Tyrus Thomas, Garth Joseph, Gani Lawal and Jordan Sibert.
