Sports is all about winning. We define our team by their win-loss record. We define a coach by his career winning percentage.
If a player has a horrible game, but hits the game-winning shot, all is forgotten and he is the hero. If a player has a great game, but misses two free throws in the closing seconds, he has failed.
If a team turns the ball over 25 times but comes away with a win, we are happy. If a team hits 20 three-pointers but loses the game, we are not.
But, for some reason, we don't pay attention to the winning percentage of NBA players. I have never seen any statistics on the matter.
So, I decided to find out which current NBA players have the highest career winning percentage. I calculated the individual winning percentage of every NBA player that has played in at least 500 games.
To qualify for the team's win or loss, the player must have played in the game.
So, lets get to the results...
