Insane fact: Kevin Garnett has played against both Magic Johnson and Nikola Jokic
He's also played against prime Jordan, Kobe, and Lebron which is pretty dope
Plus Duncan and Shaq. That adds up to half of a lot of people’s all-time top 10.
The depth chart of who KG played against is pretty good
Reggie Miller played against Kareem and Lebron, that’s a career timeline spanning 1969 to 2021
Vince Carter being teammates with Hakeem Olajuwon and Trae Young seems like a good one.
Vince Carter is older than Trae’s dad
Vince Carter played against Charles Barkely and Zion Willamson.
Also played with Dell Curry and against Steph Curry.
Vince Carter was born before the implementation of the 3pt line.
Vince Carter played with Charles Oakley who played with George Gervin. Gervin was active during the NBA-ABA merger.
Dirk Nowitzki played with Dennis Rodman (born 1961) and Luka Doncic (born 1999).
Dirk was a teammate of both Tim Hardaway Sr and Jr. Only instance of that happening in NBA history
Also Steve nash and luka doncic
If Jordan played one more season, he could of played against lebron, melo, wade, and bosh
Shaking in his boots at the thought of playing against Darko
Kawhi and T-Mac were also teammates.
T-mac played with kyle lowry too
And Lowry played with Dikembe Mutombo
I always forget that D’lo and Kobe were teammates
They were teammates and their coach that year, Byron Scott, was teammates with Kobe during Kobe’s rookie year
That reminds me that Luke Walton coached LeBron for a season, they were each drafted in the same draft.
Kevin Willis played against Kareem and LaMarcus
This is the craziest one, because who tf is Kevin Willis, and thats 50 years of basketball. Half a century.
Bruh how do you not know who Kevin Willis is?
He’s basically the Taj Gibson of his era
The NBA is such a young sport
Mine is a big "what if" kind of moment.
The 1996 97 NBA season for the Los Angeles Lakers is perhaps notorious for being the commencement of the Kobe Shaq epoch. During the offseason preceding the start of that season the Lakers, under the guidance of general manager Jerry West, acquired Shaquille O’Neal in free agency and completed a draft day trade that sent Vlade Divac to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Kobe Bryant.
The aspect of that offseason that has escaped scores of basketball minds is that Magic Johnson nearly made a third comeback for the Lakers because of his desire to play with O’Neal.
"I want to come back, yes," Johnson said during halftime of the U.S. Olympic team's victory over Angola on July 22, 1996 to the NY Daily News.
Imagine Magic and Kobe and Shaq on the same team lol
