That's why I don't like Jordan's rings comment because it doesn't apply. If lets say Lebron also had prime Shaq on his team before he became the man and got 0 rings, then Jordan's reasoning could be applied.
That's what you get for being the 1st pick. Almost 100% of the time you end up on a horrible team. That is unless Stern decides to throw an envelope in the freezer that year.
