10 NBA Players With The Most Wins In The Last 10 Years: Danny Green Is First, LeBron James Is Surprisingly Seventh

10 NBA Players With The Most Wins In The Last 10 Years: Danny Green Is First, LeBron James Is Surprisingly Seventh

Every time a team goes on a winning streak, everyone on the roster becomes more optimistic. After all, winning games consistently is the whole idea of participating in the NBA. Since more victories equate to a better team record and a higher standing in conference standings, winning results in championships. Teams have an advantage over lesser teams in the playoffs if they have a strong record and standing in their conference. Players also gain status and the vote of confidence from media, fans, and their peers.

Which player has won the most games over the past 10 years, though? The best player in the NBA typically wins the title in a given year since the NBA is a superstar-driven league and the top players typically lead to triumphs for their teams. To find out which players had the biggest influence on the game over the past decade, we compiled the greatest NBA players with the most victories. Although there have been many exceptional players in the NBA over the last 10 years, not all of them have been able to produce victories. The players with the most overall wins are listed here so that we can review NBA history and analyze longevity with impact.

10. Serge Ibaka - 443 Wins (682 Games)

One of the best role players when it comes to defending the rim and blocking shots was Serge Ibaka, and he is on the list of players with the most wins over the last decade. The man known as “Iblaka”, as the big man led the NBA in blocks twice in his career and played on some very impactful teams, including the Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto Raptors, and Los Angeles Clippers over the last 10 years. Of course, Ibaka won the championship in 2019 as a member of the Toronto Raptors as a defensive big man who could also space the floor from three.

Since 2013, Ibaka averaged 13.3 PPG, 7.3 RPG, and 1.8 BPG. His numbers were not All-Star worthy when compared to other elite big men, but Ibaka still had the impact necessary to compete with winning teams. Barring the 2021 season when he first joined the Clippers, Ibaka averaged at least 27.0 MPG per season. In the last two seasons, Ibaka has averaged under 24 MPG but he has played on two contending teams including the Milwaukee Bucks last year. It is obvious Ibaka helps to win games because teams constantly want him on the roster for defensive purposes.

9. Andre Iguodala - 445 Wins (608 Games)

Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala will be the first one to admit that he benefited from playing with some of the best players in the NBA right now, including Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Draymond Green. Iguodala only made 1 All-Star Game in his career but proved to be an incredible leader and clutch performer whenever his superstar teammates needed him most. The stocky wing player played hard-nosed defense and was a winner of the highest order, things nobody will ever take away from him. Of course, he shocked the world when he won the Finals MVP award in 2015 as a member of the Golden State Warriors ahead of Stephen Curry. 

Iguodala changed the series in Golden State’s favor when he defended LeBron James and prevented The King from taking over the series single handedly despite the absence of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. The swingman had more impact in the series than Stephen Curry, and that is why he ended up winning the award. Of course, Iggy became a role player following the 2015 season by forming a “Death Lineup” and has 4 NBA championships to his name. Since 2013, Iggy has averages of 7.4 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 3.5 APG, which are indicative of role player numbers. 

8. Jae Crowder - 451 Wins (735 Games)

Jae Crowder

It is no surprise to see Jae Crowder on this list, and that was because he has played on contending teams alongside great players for a long time. Crowder was a part of the Boston Celtics team that began building its status in the East between 2015 and 2017 before joining LeBron James in Cleveland during the 2018 season. After a brief stint in Utah and Memphis, Crowder joined the Miami Heat and helped the team make the NBA Finals alongside Jimmy Butler and head coach Erik Spoelstra. The bulky defensive wing had a rather slow start to his career, before blossoming into a legitimate starting-caliber player.

Crowder has been a member of the Phoenix Suns over the last two seasons, helping them make the Finals in 2021. The forward defends at a high level, can make threes, and hustles for loose balls. No doubt about it, Jae wins games because contending teams need a player who can compete on both ends of the floor. The former Celtics forward has averages of 9.6 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 1.6 APG while shooting 34.6% from three. Crowder also shot 38.9% from three during the 2021 season with the Phoenix Suns and hopefully, he can return to the Finals again next year.

7. LeBron James - 453 Wins (677 Games)

LeBron James

Heading into year 20 and counting, LeBron James is truly a freak of nature. The powerful small forward continues to play at an elite level despite completing 1,366 games, an incredible fact that will stand the test of time. The King has achieved everything in the game, from individual awards (4 MVPs, 4 Finals MVPs) to team awards (4 NBA titles). Of course, James has won a lot of games to place himself in a position to earn those accolades. LeBron is getting close to 900 wins as a whole, which would place him closer to the top 5 all-time among past and present legends. 

As the 2nd greatest scorer ever in total points and with a history of incredible success in his resume, James currently sits at 453 wins over the last 10 years. The King has undoubtedly become the best player in the past decade considering he won all of his 4 titles in the past decade, including championships that were won in the 2012, 2013, 2016, and 2020 seasons. James took an initiative to always be surrounded by the best players in the league, including the likes of Kyrie Irving, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Love, and Anthony Davis. All of those players helped LeBron win a ton of games year after year. We have not seen many players achieve LeBron’s success for so long, which means The King could have more records to break in due time.

6. Patty Mills - 462 Wins (730 Games)

Patty Mills

Patty Mills is one of the most popular role players because of his love for the game and clutch ability. With a very solid career spanning 13 seasons so far, Patty has career averages of 9.2 PPG and 2.3 APG on 38.9% shooting. Over the last decade, the guard has averages of 9.6 PPG and 2.4 APG on 39.9% shooting from three. Patty has also been on some very good teams, including the San Antonio Spurs squads that were winning championships and competing in the playoffs.

Armed with a quick release and an accurate three-point shot, Mills has to be considered one of the best shooting role players. The Australian won the 2014 championship as a member of the San Antonio Spurs and also played for Brooklyn Nets this past season. Mills has played with the Spurs since the 2012 season, which is a massive reason why he has accumulated a ton of wins, even more than what LeBron James has over the last ten years. No doubt, at 34, Mills will be hungry to win his second championship in his career as a member of the Brooklyn Nets in 2023.

5. James Harden - 466 Wins (722 Games)

James Harden

A candidate for being a top-5 shooting guard of all time, James Harden is fifth among current players in terms of winning games. James Harden is one of the greatest players to have never won an NBA title despite making an NBA Finals appearance as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2012. But he joined the Rockets in 2013, and until the 2021 season, he was a monster as the best shooting guard in the league and won a ton of games as a result of that. He played alongside some other stars, including Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Clint Capela, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Joel Embiid since 2013.

In his prime, Harden was unstoppable as a member of the Houston Rockets. He averaged 28.6 PPG, 6.3 RPG, and 8.1 APG while shooting 44.2% from the field, 36.0% from three, and 86.3% from the foul line. The Beard was able to get to the rim anytime he wanted, and even when he is older and slower right now, he has still been able to win a ton of games because of the quality of teams he has played for. Next season, Harden has a chance to keep raking up the wins as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers alongside Joel Embiid.

4. Draymond Green - 470 Wins (685 Games)

Warriors GM Bob Myers Says The Team Is Not Thinking Of Offloading Draymond Green In The Future: "We’re Going To Do Everything We Can To Keep Him In The Fold"

Whether you like him or not, Draymond Green is a player that simply wins games as a member of the Golden State Warriors. Sure, his numbers are not as great as Curry’s, Durant’s, or Klay’s, but his impact is arguably just as valuable because he defends at a high level and sets the tone for his team. Green won the Defensive Player of the Year in 2017, and over the last ten years, he averages 8.7 PPG, 6.9 RPG, and 5.4 APG while chipping in 1.4 SPG and 1.0 BPG. Green can defend multiple positions, lead the offense through playmaking, and be an irritant to the opposition. 

With 4 NBA championships to his name and 4 All-Star selections, Draymond Green is part of the original core alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson that won a ton of games. The power forward is an above-average defender without a doubt, and he always finds a way to be effective even if his shot does not fall from three or anywhere else on the court. A future first-ballot Hall of Famer, Green has won a very impressive 470 games over 685 played, which is a testament to his winning nature. Ahead of him is none other than Stephen Curry, who has 4 more wins.

3. Stephen Curry - 474 Wins (646 Games)

Stephen Curry

The greatest point guard over the last decade, Stephen Curry, has won a ton of games and a ton of championships with the Golden State Warriors. The Golden State Warriors legend has won 4 NBA titles over his career, including 1 Finals MVP and 2 MVPs. Curry has only played for the Warriors over his legendary career, making them a winner as soon as he arrived on the team as a bona fide MVP candidate. Winning back-to-back MVP awards and later winning 4 titles thanks to his incredible deep-range shooting, we will never get another Steph Curry.

Legendary head coach Gregg Popovich admitted that it was Duncan who was the driving force behind 5 championship teams and without him, it would be hard to replicate that amount of success. Curry has not only been the best point guard for the majority of the last decade but also arguably the most dominant player who affected the offensive side of the game through shooting. With 474 victories, Stephen Curry sits firmly in the top 3 in total victories over the last decade. 

2. Chris Paul - 478 Wins (670 Games)

Chris Paul 2021

Chris Paul is not only a future Hall of Fame player with 12 All-Star appearances and 11 All-NBA appearances, but he has had an incredibly long career that has spanned 17 years. Over the last decade, CP3 has played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Phoenix Suns. Paul was a stalwart for the Clippers, Rockets, and Suns, and was a legitimate contender for each franchise. It is no wonder why Paul ranks 2nd among players in terms of total victories because he has played alongside James Harden, Blake Griffin, Devin Booker, and DeAndre Jordan over the last decade.

Paul has had over 450 wins over the last ten years, which is a testament to the greatness of the teams he was on and also to his own quality as a leader. The two-way point guard has been a force for the majority of his career, and over the last decade, he has averages of 17.6 PPG and 9.3 APG to go along with 1.9 SPG. As a winner, leader, and impact player; Chris Paul is unsurprisingly second place on this list behind one player who was also a member of the famous San Antonio Spurs franchise.

1. Danny Green - 512 Wins (725 Games)

Danny Green

Unsurprisingly, Danny Green is atop the list with the most wins by a single player in the NBA over the last ten years. The solid two-way shooting guard and small forward has played on some great teams, including the San Antonio Spurs in 2014, the Toronto Raptors in 2019, and the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020. Thanks to his defensive acumen and long-range shooting ability, Green has always found a way to be effective starting or coming off the bench. Danny is obviously fortunate to have played with the likes of Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Pascal Siakam, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis, which essentially boosted him to earn 3 NBA championships.  

Green has solid averages of 8.9 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 1.6 APG, 1.1 SPG, and 0.8 BPG, while shooting 39.8% from three. His defense and three-point shooting have been a reason why Green was on the Spurs for 8 seasons in his career, 1 season with the Raptors, 1 with the Lakers, and 2 more with the Philadelphia 76ers over the last two seasons. Danny has played on a title-contender every season of his career and that is a major reason why he has accumulated so many wins in the past ten years. With a solid advantage over Steph Curry, Green can keep piling on the wins as long as he continues competing with title contenders.
