From 1 to 35,535: The Bottom/Top Ten

Let's recap where we stand on our journey from the Wolf who saw the shortest amount of court time to KG and his franchise-best 35,535 minutes (which is roughly the equivalent of 1,000 games played). In the nine men we have reviewed, there were a few NBA journeymen but most were guys who, as basketbally gifted as they were, just couldn't cut it at the top level.

The countdown (or countup?) to date:

1 - Calvin Booth, 1 minute played

2 - Jason Hart, 5

2 - Trevor Winter, 5

4 - Paul Grant, 8

5 - Nikoloz Tskitishvili, 13

6 - Jim Thomas, 14

7 - Steve Johnson, 17

8 - Dan Godfread, 20

9 - Myron Brown, 23

Which leads us to:

10 - Brian Evans, 24
