With Jason Kidd’s retirement earlier this week, Kevin Garnett becomes the active leader in minutes (47,801) and games played (1,323). At 37, KG isn’t the league’s oldest player. Kurt Thomas (40),  Juwan Howard (40), Steve Nash (39), Derek Fisher (38) and Jerry Stackhouse (38) are all clinging to their respective careers. Nash is the only one of the group with a contract for next season. Robert Parish leads all players with 1,611 games played. Garnett would need nearly 3 more full seasons to eclipse the Chief. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played more minutes than any other player – 57,446. Maintaining 25 mpg for 70 games, KG would need another 6 seasons to pass Jabbar. Don’t hold your breath. If KG returns for his 18th season (and Jackie Mac thinks he will), expect Garnett to surpass Reggie Miller (14), Alex English (13) and come close to John Havlicek on the all-time scoring list.  He’s likely to overtake Walt Bellamy (9) and possibly Nate Thurmond (8) on the all-time rebounding list.
