The UTEP legend had a great NBA career but is amongst an elite group of players who failed to win a ring. This was despite playing for some of the most historically successful franchises. These included the Warriors, the Nuggets, and the Miami Heat. None of these managed to win a championship with him on their roster.
He played in the Eastern Conference Finals but that was the peak of his postseason adventures. Otherwise, analysts judge his Hall of Fame career off on his achievements. The Olympic gold medalist was a five-time All-Star and also made the All-NBA First Team. That’s an incredible list of personal honors and he deserves respect (via The Player’s Tribune).
