Thanks. I think Magic benefited from playing with many hall of famers. Kawhi did more with less. Both top 10 locks for sure.

Wow we ranking them on win percentages in the finals.

How about the number of times they got to the finals, compared to the number of years in the NBA.

Most of the top 10 players mentioned above got at least carried to one ring. Which isn't the case for LeBron

Plus made the same number of playoffs as Bron (13) and literally did each stat less

less points, steals, game winners, rebounds, assists, blocks, 100 or lower defense RTg seasons

Nobody remembers second place. You either win the ring or you didn't. Would be interesting to see another list based on number of rings divided by number of seasons in the league.

According to OP, itís better to have both less titles & less Finals appearances

According to LeBron's logic actually. Y'all worship the man. Why not respect his logic?
LeBron: I'd rather not make playoffs than lose in Finals.

To qualify, players need to have made at least 3 NBA finals in their careers (dominance) and awarded the Finals MVP at least twice (to prove it wasn't just a fluke).

Top 10 NBA players of all time (NBA finals records wins/losses):
1. Michael Jordan (6/6, 100%)
2. Bill Russell (11/12, 92%)
3. Tim Duncan (5/6, 83%)
4. Kobe Bryant (5/7, 71%)
5. Shaquille O'Neal (4/6, 67%)
6. Kawhi Leonard (2/3, 67%)
7. Kareem Abdul Jabbar (6/10, 60%)
8. Larry Bird (3/5, 60%)
9. Magic Johnson (5/9, 56%)
10. Kevin Durant (2/4, 50%)

Outside looking in:
Wilt Chamberlain (2/6, 33%)
LeBron James (3/9, 33%)

The perfect top 10 criteria has finally been derived

Appears so.
Also Lebron is a modern day Jerry West in the finals win column if not for Kyrie and Allen hitting 2 out of the 3 biggest shots in NBA history.

Imagine needing historical shots by teammates to account for 66% of your rings because you are only capable of making a single FT in the last 4 minutes of a game 7 finals when your team needs you the most.

How is Kyrie's shot considered historical, when your stance is that GS was decimated with injuries and extremely tired at that point. His shot was against the one guy everyone cried about being injured the most.

You'd think you'd get tired of me exposing your Kyrie Finals takes after constantly pointing out your stupidity.
