Top 5: Players with most appearances in NBA finals

What are the top five players with most appearances in NBA finals?

Given the team’s dominance in the 1950s and 1960s, it’s no surprise to see a couple of Celtics legends stand alone when it comes to playing in the NBA Finals. Bill Russell and Sam Jones are the only players who have ever punched their tickets to the series more than 10 times.

As for the current Warriors, Andre Iguodala has bragging rights over Curry, Green and Thompson because he played for the Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals, giving him seven total appearances. Golden State’s “Big Three” is part of a “Six-Timers Club” that includes Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Tim Duncan and Shaquille O’Neal.
