Fadeaway World

Making it to the NBA is difficult but staying there is even harder. I mean, you’re competing against the top-notch basketball players to ever set foot on hardwood, so standing out isn’t for everybody.

Needless to say, that means some of the legends of the game have dominated most of their opposition, either because they’ve played on better teams, or because some of their rivals have been traded around the league and often put in difficult positions to succeed.

Role players get passed around. Superstars stay with their teams. Playing for a bad team obviously gives you a tough time trying to beat the best in the game. That’s why we’re going to give you a list of the most wins against a single player without a loss in NBA history.
