Erving also played for the Nets when it was in the ABA, and before that the Virginia Squires. It was a cruel joke on the ABA teams that merged with the NBA that the Nets were required to give up their team leader.

Tim Duncan is my all time favorite player in the NBA. So humble and easygoing, nothing like the self-titled "King" James. I grew up watching Spurs games with my dad. We will be sad to see him go, but San Antonio cannot thank TIm Duncan enough!

The top two players (though they have played for the same team for the entire career so far) should no be on here--they haven't even played a decade yet. There are enough great/good players that played their entire careers with one team, why include guys that are quite likely to switch before their careers are up?

The problem is that the Celtics have so many legendary players that were also one teamers that you could do an entire quiz with them. In addition of Hondo, there's also Bob Cousy, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn etc.

The quiz doesn't say, "Name all the players who ever played who only played for one team." ... It's, here are some player, here's the hint, name them. "But what about Bryant Reeves?" ... It's not a cumulative list, and never was meant to be intended as such.

Didn't even realise Haslem was still playing, that was a lucky guess. Also didn't guess Erving as he played for the Nets but that was under ABA sadly.

You may have not realize that you did not include Klay Thompson. He was in fact drafted by the Golden State Warriors and has never played for any other NBA Franchise. If their is a purpose for his exclusion then I don't mind. I know it would be hard to include every NBA player that has only played for one team. Thanks.

I understand you can't put every player that has only played for one team but I personally think Klay Thompson has made a big enough impact to be listed
