Only 5 players to be selected to seven of last eight All-Star Games:— Jordan Howenstine (@AirlessJordan) February 1, 2019
LaMarcus Aldridge making his 7th All-Star appearance is impressive on it’s own, but this year’s accolade adds to the league leading 21st consecutive season* for the San Antonio Spurs. Starting back in 1998, the Spurs have had an All-Star in each and every game.

Perhaps it’s easier to play the trivia angle and ask which years the Spurs did NOT have a player in the NBA All-Star Game: 1989 and 1997.
George Gervin attended nine consecutive All-Star Games after the Spurs joined the NBA between 1977 and 1985. Alvin Robinson carried the torn playing from 1986-1988. In addition to his appearances during this 21 year run, The Admiral played in each game between the years 1990-1996, essentially breaking his streak during the injure-riddled 1997 where he played in only 6 games.
Now if David Bertans can just get himself into the 3-point shooting contest...
