The NBA players with the best winning percentage ever

- by

In the NBA, winners get immortalized over anyone else, pretty much like in every other sport in existence.

As such, we decided to take a look at the NBA players with the best winning percentages in league history.

The player who remains No. 1 in that stat is Kawhi Leonard, which makes sense considering how much winning he has done throughout his career. He’s followed by Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, two of the greatest players ever who played solely for two of the best franchises in NBA history.
