Playing in the hardest league in the world is not an easy task by any means. Only the best of the best even get a chance to display their talents to the whole world via the NBA. Moreover, even among such players, there are a few players that are cut from a different cloth.
Be it winning championships or simply winning games, it takes a lot of hard work to achieve that. What's harder? It is to stay with a single team for the most part or for an entire career and help them win games on a regular basis.
Today, we are discussing 5 players who have won the most regular-season games with a single franchise. Evidently, you can also find the list of 5 players with the most losses in the regular season with a single franchise.

Tim Duncan tops the list with 1001 wins to his name. He spent his entire career with the Spurs and won various accolades with the team. If it weren't for his laid-back nature, he might even be in the debate for the GOAT. Duncan and the Spurs dominated the 2000s and won several NBA championships.
