Guys Who Played At a High Level for the Longest Time

With KG's return to Minneapolis set for Wednesday, let's review the list of guys who played at a 10+ Win Share level for the most seasons.  KG no longer plays at that level, but he is on the list in a tie for 18th place.  See below for the name, dates, and (at the end) number of seasons a guy managed to get 10+ Win Shares (led by Kareem's 16 seasons).  The "one of this guys is not like the other" guy would be Reggie Miller.....certainly not a top 25 (or probably not a top 50) player, but he is tied for 7th place on this list.  (For you younger folks, Bob Petit was ten times first-team All-NBA.).
