His 22 seasons in the league set an NBA record, surpassing former luminaries such as Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, and current Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James.

Bill Laimbeer, a former Detroit Pistons center and WNBA coach, was nominated for the first time in his playing career. 

He played in the league for 15 years and won back-to-back championships with Detroit in 1989 and 1990.
