Top 10 Players With The Most Losses In NBA History


Losing is never a fun experience, and that's even more so in professional sports, where players can lose millions of dollars in potential earnings just by being unsuccessful on the playing field.

Just as it takes a special kind of player to win a massive amount of games over the course of career, it takes an equally-as-impressive player to own the record for the most losses in a career, a record that was recently broken this week.

The player has to be good enough to have the longevity where he can continue to be signed and hang around the league for enough years to break the record, be unlucky enough to play on enough unsuccessful teams, and be a player who isn't impactful enough consistently to actually win games off their own back.

Join us as we take a look at the top 10 players with the most losses in NBA history.
