The New York Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau marveled at the soon-to-be 19-time All-Star’s ability to maintain his “truly amazing” level of play over 20 NBA seasons.

“When I look at Kareem’s record, that’s one of those records I never thought anyone would get to,” Thibodeau said. “The fact that he’s doing it and he will do it and doing it in such an efficient way, he’s truly remarkable, durability wise and the way he continues to improve each year.

“But I also think that it’s not only the greatness that he’s brought out of himself, but every team that he’s been with, like the track record of the championships and getting to the Finals. Just an unbelievable career.”
