Mikal Bridges. 1. player. 66. . .

The Phoenix Suns have the best record in the NBA by a wide margin at 51-13 and Mikal Bridges has been present for the entire 64-game ride. This is extremely familiar territory for Bridges, who has astoundingly not missed a game yet in his four-year NBA career. That’s right: 291 consecutive regular-season games. Bridges also played in every game during his three-year collegiate career at Villanova. He’s an iron man through and through. But if he wants to break A.C. Green’s All-Time NBA Iron Man record, he still has 901 games (equivalent to 11 NBA regular seasons) to go to reach Green’s unthinkable 1,192 straight games.

With less than 20 games left in the season, who will be the last 2021-22 Iron Men standing?
