Default Too Many Teams?

We often hear that Shaq played on too many teams. Iirc, he played on 6 teams. Kareem, Jordan and LeBron played on 2 teams. Barkley played on 3 teams.

How many is TOO MANY for a superstar player?

I think it's more about which of their years were spent on other teams.

Jordan spent all his relevant years on one team, same with malone. Kareem split his best years between two teams, same with LeBron...

Shaq spent his early years with orlando, his peak years with the Lakers, his downturn years with the Heat and then hopped to 3 other teams for a year or so each... he should have retired after the heat I think and his career would have been looked at more positively down the stretch. The end reeked of desperation, like he couldn't just let it go when he knew he couldn't bring it anymore.

2-3 teams is the max I think, but context also plays a big role.

case by case scenario... there is no set number..

Ray Allen is on his fourth and has been more than a solid player at each and every stop.. Shaq should have stopped on his third..

Horry was on four different teams and produced everywhere he went

Not to compare him to Horry but Jordan was on two and easily could do without his time in Washington being part of his career notes...


Case by case

3. For example, if LeBron joins another team (which will be his 3rd), his image will be ruined.
