Not going to say it was skip. But the convo was ballooned in early 2000s. It basically became a focal point in arguments over who was a better player.
Michael Jordan’s rings is what really started it. Because every player in history got compared to him going 6-0
Then you had guys like Barkley Malone Ewing etc... retiring without rings.
So the convo became who is better worthy or barkley.... “well worthy has rings”.... etc

Skip started that 6-0 bullsh*t because I remember people saying if Kobe win 3 without Shaq he was better than Mike because the west was tougher

I hate how fans turned basketball and football into a individual sport like they don't have teammates that played a big part in winning

At the same time, a player putting a team on his back or being the main contributor in winning it all is one way to measure greatness.

Now, rings don't matter IMO when it comes to judging who the better player is though.
Still need a good team to win hit big shots defense and rebound

The correct answer isn't Iverson when the team played better with billups who went to 7 straight conference finals, basketball is a team sport not a individual sport
AI is better than Billup...AI with that Detroit team would win more than 1 chip. Dummies attaching team accomplish to individuals...so Billup got to Detroit and became a super duper player? What of his beginning when he was bouncing around from Celtics to Other teams, he got to Detroit and became great or that he joined a well constructed team at the right time?

If 7 straight conf finals is such a big deal then Bron must be the greatest then given that criteria of going to 8 straight finals with multiple chips in the modern era!!!

Allen Iverson couldn't play point guard so he wouldn't have fit on that Detroit team it's a reason why Detroit went from the conference finals to getting swept in the first round once they got him and Denver did the opposite once they got billups
It's more to basketball than individual success that's why it's 10 players on the court

Ask him to wear a ring for a second and he will look at you crazy. Rings mean something we need somebody like paxson to say what horry means

No!! The Championship argument really doesnít matter when someone is considered the GOAT with only 6 rings when itís HOF players with 11 and 6 rings with more points as well.
