Congratulations to A.C. Green on the 17th Anniversary of His Historic “Iron Man” Record


Nov. 20, 1997 – A.C. Green of the Dallas Mavericks sets the NBA record for consecutive games, competing in his 907th straight game. The old mark of 906 belonged to Randy Smith, a 6-3 guard-forward who played in the NBA from 1971-83.

Green, from Benson High and Oregon State, winds up playing in 1,192 consecutive games, earning the nickname “Iron Man.”

He is inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2003, after 16 years in the NBA, three league titles and one NBA All-Star year.
