    Only 10 players have been able to reach NBA finals five straight seasons or more. LeBron James and James Jones are the only two players in modern era to achieve the feat, all of the other players were the members of Boston Celtics dynasty of 50s and 60s.

    Using Twitter for endorsing products is fairly common these days. Many NBA stars also use their twitter accounts for advertising purposes and their rates are just eye-popping.

    There is always a possibility that two teammates will set a few records if they play together over a long period of time.
