The 10 NBA Seasons With the Most Miles Traveled Since 2013
Sports people always talk about how playing in the NFL inflicts damage on players' bodies -- and that's true -- but, in comparison, we rarely talk about the different type of toll the NBA grind has upon its players.
Even when we do discuss it, all we talk about are high minutes and back-to-back sets. But, with advancements in technology, we're able to measure the impact of an 82-game season more accurately than ever before.
Three years ago, new technology allowed us to track player movement. From that data, NBA.com produces statistics on various categories, including speed and distance.
Over the first three years of this new era, we've seen many thoughts play out through these numbers -- like the speed of dynamic players such as John Wall and Russell Westbrook. We don't talk about distance much, though.
In looking at distance, it's the true measure of what it costs to play on a game-to-game basis. It's measured in feet (steps) and miles (games) and adds up quicker than minutes over time.
With that being said, so far, which players have put on the most miles in a single season since tracking began in 2013-14?
