Michael Jordan has cemented himself as the greatest of all time. 6 championships, 6 Finals MVP’s, 5 League MVP’s. The man did it all and dominated the league in the process.
He won 6 NBA titles in 8 years. The only reason he didn’t win 8 titles in 8 years was because he took a break from basketball to see if he could dominate another sport.
This got us thinking. Michael Jordan wasn’t the only great basketball player in the 1990’s. He ruined the chance for many great players to win rings. So we put together a list of players who Jordan eliminated from the playoffs and didn’t allow to win an NBA title.
Some of these names are all-time greats and Hall of Famers. Some of these guys are players who were just good for their era. Either way, none of these men ever got to lift the Larry O’Brien trophy as champions because Michael Jordan and his Bulls were running the league.
Take a look and see what you think. For some fans out there you’ll be taken back to heartbreaking moments of “what if” and “what could have been” if not for the dominance of MJ.
