Here’s just a little food for thought. No matter which team wins the NBA Finals this year (nice work boys, keep it up) a player whose career has become a joke will win a title. Either Adam Morrison or J.J. Redick will walk away from this series with a ring. That’s got to kill hundreds of NBA greats to come before them.
When the Magic and Lakers are done dueling, Morrison or Redick will have one more ring than LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson, Dirk Nowitzki, Chris Paul, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, Jason Kidd and Steve Nash combined.
Does that drive anyone else crazy? Regardless of what you think of the players listed, they’ve certainly worked their asses off in the NBA and none of them have a title to show for it.
Want some more guys who couldn’t score a title but whose careers make Morrison and Redick look like D-League role players?
Frankly, I’m sure Malone is good for a double-double right now. How awful do you think he feels sitting on his couch watching this series? And there’s no doubt in my mind that Reggie Miller would be a huge upgrade over Redick right now.
So, Adam, J.J., good luck, enjoy getting that ring you did nothing to earn.
