Rings are an integral part of every historical NBA debate, but
how important are rings when judging players? We all know that the
aim of the game is to win, that’s obvious, but are they the be-all
and end-all? Clearly not, so where is the balance? How differently
would we view Ewing had the Knicks had won in 1994 over Hakeem and
the Rockets? How about Barkley; where would we rank him had he led
the Suns to the title over Jordan in 93? Or Karl Malone had he
claimed either (or both!) the 97 or 98 championship?
Also in this podcast, we insert Kobe into the eye-test comparison with LeBron and Jordan.
