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.

Right and wrong. When you're using for players like Horry and Fisher then yes it's a dumb arguments. When you're using it to compare dudes considered to be Goats or once in a generation players like Kobe and MJ then yes rings are important as you have to use everything to compare the true greats. Horry has made it clear he's a Bron stan and doesn't view Kobe highly the media has been trying to devalue rings ever since they realized my King wasn't gonna pass MJ.

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

Kobe is the greatest because of his ability to adapt and find a way to score. The man won championships with a finger splint on his index finger on his shooting hand. Had games where he only used his left...

All smart people have this saying this for years. But then the trolls start talking the 3-6 sh*t. It takes a fu*king team to win.

Problem is that downplays all the work that role players put in to help their team win the title.

That's why I've always said being a role player in basketball is the most thankless job in sports (especially the NBA). Your team wins a title, all the credit goes to the star player and your role is marginalized. But if your team loses, then people will throw you under the bus by saying "star player X needs more help!"

No star player wins on his own. Pippen's rings means just as much as Jordan, despite Jordan being the better player. They never won without each other, yet Pippen is just used to catapult MJ into GOAT status. That's some bullsh*t if you ask me

"Can't be like them n*ggas out here looking fat and gaudy
They ain't never won no rings, but be mad at Horry
Talking bout, man that n*gga don't deserve that sh*t!"

He's treated like one especially nowadays.

Cats out here trying to revise history and act like Jordan carried Pippen to 6 titles

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
