Default rings don't always define a players career.......................................duh

but it helps allot.


where would barkley with 5 rings rank all time ( not his current 15-20 spot )

where would baylor with 5 rings rank all time ( not his current 12-15 spot )

where would karl malone with 5 rings rank all time ( not his current 15-20 spot )



yes lebron. we know there are great players without rings. but theres a big difference between top 20 great and rare legendary status i.e. kobe/jordan

and all 3 of those guys would be on that level with 5 rings

baylor with 5-6 rings would be arguable goat

And Kobe riding finals MVP Shaq to 3 rings doesn't mean anything?

Lebron finishes with 1 rings he is top 10-15, he finishes with 3 Rings he is top 7, He finishes with 5 or 6 Rings he is Easily top 3 all time.

My question to all these scenarios is: How do the players in question play in these scenarios? That's the pertinent detail people always leave out in these hypotheticals.

It's different due to Kareem's efficiency and status as the defensive anchor on the team.

All LeBron really needs to achieve to be equal with Kobe is another ring and Finals MVP.

lol kobe was the main play maker, main ball handler, top defensive ranked player( 1st team defense ), main clutch player on the lakers for those 3 titles. and ontop of it he dropped 25-30 points

lmao

like i said... no difference between those 3 and kareems 4 as non finals mvp


when its multiple legends. only 1 can win finals mvp. and shaq just did a bit more when it mattered most.

the east had crap representatives in the finals. shaq took full advantage.

when the west was tight. kobe had the best stats against the real competition


no one ever says kareem only has 2 rings

right?

Not when you conspire with 2 top 5 players at the time to make a super team.

No one will respect someone who did that.

and in my opinion, he will never be goat.

That doesn't mean he was the "higher ranked" or better and more impactful defender on those teams.

We making stats up now? . Kobe averaged 15.6/4.6/4.2 in 2000 finals compared to Shaq's 38/16.6 .

Kobe in 2001 finals 24.6/7.8/4.8 compared to Shaq's 33/15.8/4.8 .

2002 finals Kobe - 26.7/5.7/5.2 and Shaq - 36.5/12.2/3.7 .

So again Shaq was a ****ing monster and there's a reason he won the Finals MVPs, and stop making up bullshit stats (especially 2000 playoffs).
