The Miami Heat loss game 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals to the Boston Celtics. I'm sure many were expecting this series to be over by now since the Miami Heat was up 2-0 on the Boston Celtics. Well, expect the controversy of whether or not the so-called BIG 3 (Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh) will survive this summer to continue. Where will coach Erik Spoelstra end up? What will the legendary coach Pat Riley do?
Lebron James joins a list of Hall of Fame greats which includes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Moses Malone. All have won at least 3 most valuable player awards and at least 1 championship ring, Lebron still has 0 ring.
When ask which non-celtics player has the most championship rings in the NBA, don't rush to guest Michael Jordan. As a member of the Chicago Bulls for most of his NBA career, Jordan won 6 championships. Robert Horry won his first 2 of 7 championship rings with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995. He then went on to win again in 2000, 2001, 2002 with the Los Angeles Lakers. Horry picked up his last 2 championship rings in 2005 and 2007 while playing for the San Antonio Spurs.
