10 Current NBA Vets Who Deserve a Championship

Kurt Thomas

NBA experience: 18 Seasons (1995 - Present)
Teams played for: Miami Heat (1995-1997), Dallas Mavericks (1997-1998), New York Knicks (1998-2005), Phoenix Suns (2005-2007), Seattle SuperSonics (2007-2008), San Antonio Spurs (2008-2009), Milwaukee Bucks (2009-2010), Chicago Bulls (2010-2011), Portland Trail Blazers (2011-2012), New York Knicks (2012-2013)

After re-upping with the Knicks for the second time in his career this past season, Kurt Thomas became the oldest player in the NBA at 40 years old and change. Known throughout his tenure in the Association as a hard-nosed battler on the boards, Kurt has never been about numbers or individual accolades, just a commitment to winning.

During his first run with the Knicks he made back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals Appearances (1999, 2000), and one trip to the NBA Finals in '99 where his eighth-seeded Knicks fell to the Spurs in five. Thomas has called nine different cities home over the course of his 18-year career, and after being waived by the Knicks this past April, he will likely have to seek refuge in a 10th if he's going to continue his quest to lift the Larry O'Brien Trophy.
