Looks like the days of players playing for one team for their entire career are over.
Dirk might be the last one...
I can see Steph Curry playing for the warriors for his career but too early to tell.

Any other players you can think of?

Nick Collison just retired last year only played for the Sonics/Thunder (Manu also did with the Spurs).  Haslem is probably done after this year, so he will join Dirk in retiring having only played for 1 team.

In addition to Curry (draymond and klay also have shots at it with the Warriors), I think Lillard has a pretty good shot at it.  Wall is basically untradeable for awhile, so he might get there by default.  If Kemba Walker re-signs this summer he might very well be in Charlotte his whole career.

Good call.  I totally forgot about him.

So far I got..

Westbrook
Lillard
Walker
Manu (I know he just retired)
Haslem
Dirk
Nick Collison
Conley



I would've said Gasol, but he just got traded.

Lilard is a good one. i don't think Westbrook will finish his career as a Thunder.

It's only been 4 years, you never know if Giannis might ever want out like AD, if they fail to reach the Finals in two or three years.

He will demand a trade after 2 more exits vs the Celtics in the playoffs   :)

Me either.  I don't think he has the personality for it.  Once his role isn't to his liking I think he'll become disgruntled.
