The longest-tenured player on each NBA team


How quickly time flies.

It feels like just yesterday we received the Woj bomb indicating that LeBron James would be leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Los Angeles Lakers.

Now?

The four-time league MVP and four-time NBA champion is the Lakers’ longest-tenured player, partly due to the amount of turnover the L.A. roster has seen since James’ arrival back before the 2018-19 season.
