For every era dominating Jordan, there exists a bevy of Malones, Millers, and Barkleys that never quite managed to break through. These players were innovators, perfectionists, and BEASTS. Their only down fall may have been never playing for the ’96 Bulls or the ’83 Sixers. But they deserve a little bit of your love and respect, as well as a spot on our list of the top 5 players never to win a championship!
And before anyone goes running their mouth about Dwight Howard or Kevin Durant or (sigh) Jeremy Lin, bear this in mind: we’re strictly dealing with players who have already retired and, therefore, have no future chance of winning a ring as a player. And, barring a phenomenal physical turnaround from Sir Charles, this list looks to remain pretty static.
