Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson has played in parts of nine NBA seasons, doing so for six different teams.

Technically you might qualify that as a journeyman, but Robinson takes pride in the notion, recently suggesting he wants to become the first player in history to play for every team in the league.

Nate Robinson: “If I can be the first player to play for every team in the league, I want to do it.”

With the 5’9 Robinson playing on six squads already, he certainly has a head start on the idea though with thirty teams in the league, he has a while to go.

The former Washington Huskies point guard has a player option at season end, so to complete such a task he’d likely need to decline that and play on one-year contracts for the next 24 years, giving him a grand total of 38 years in the league.

Sorry Nate – you’ve already given it a good effort, but I think you’re going to fall short on this one.

Former number one overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft, Joe Smith, holds the record, playing with 12 different NBA teams.
