Elgin Baylor Report Abuse
It’s amazing how few people know about Elgin Baylor, a man who had a career average of 27.4 points per game. Elgin was offensively gifted and was a great rebounder as well. However, he never managed to win a title.

Amazing career averages, 27,4 PPG (3rd All-Time) and 12.9 RPG, being only 6'5", also holds the NBA record for most points in a Finals Game with 61, it's hard to imagine that he'd never won a NBA Title.

Charles Barkley Report Abuse
Charles Barkley is a trash talker, hall of famer, and ringless. Michael once again was the main barrier between Charles and an NBA championship.

Karl Malone Report Abuse
Karl Malone is one of the greatest all time with career numbers like 25 points and 13 rebounds per game and 13 all-star appearances. But the one which they call Michael Jordan was the one who ultimately kept him from a title.

At only 6 feet tall, he was the most explosive scorer of his generation, curent holds the 5th highest career scoring average in NBA history (26.8 ppg) and the 2nd highest in Playoff history (29.7 ppg) only behind Michael Jordan, he also holds 2 NBA records; 'Most steals in a Playoff Game - 10' and 'Most Consecutive season leading the league in Steals - 3', and was one of the very few player with consecutive 50+ point games in the Playoffs.

John Stockton Report Abuse
John Stockton is yet another victim to Jordan and the Bulls. He made it to the finals in 1997 and 1998, but lost to the Bulls both times.

One of the greatest 3-point shooters in NBA history, second best in 3-point field goals made All-Time (behind Ray Allen).

Chris Paul Report Abuse
One of the best leaders of all time, and THE best leader currently. Penetrates like Nash, passes like Kidd, and handles like Iverson. You combine those things, you get Chris Paul. An unbelievable player.

13 points in 35 seconds is enough to be in the list, but he's also one of the few active players that have scored more than 60 points in a single game.

Vince Cater Report Abuse

Comments:
Probably the greatest dunker to ever play in the NBA, sorry Jordan, Dr.J, Dominique and all the other great dunkers, but Vinsanity has brought the dunking game to another level, the same way that Dr. J did it in his time, Jordan did a decade later, and the final "Dunk Revolution" happened at the hands of Vince Carter at the beginning of the 21st Century, let's see who comes next.

LeBron is a 3x MVP and won an NBA championship in 2012, as well as finals MVP and an Olympic Gold Medal. The only other player that accomplished that in one summer was MJ.

He is only 26 years old, and is in good position to win a title in the next couple of years, so I think he shouldn't be in the list just yet, but if he never wins a ring he will probably stand among the Top 5 players of this rank, maybe number 1 if he keeps playing like he has been playing in the last 5 years.

Jason Kid Report Abuse
Kid is the kind of point guard that comes once every decade. He is a general on the floor and can bust a triple-double on almost any given night. However, Kid has yet to win a ring despite a couple of opportunities.

*Kidd; He won a championship in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks so he shouldn't be on this list.
