What about Kareem? In his last three years, he won the championship twice. Even in his final year, where he put up the worst stats of his career (still averaging over 10 PPG, mind you), the Lakers made the NBA finals. It’s not as perfect as winning the finals, but it’s on par with a story like Duncan. He played for two teams in his career, but he’ll forever be remembered as a Laker, where he played 14 seaons, made the playoffs 13 times, won five of his six championship rings, and finished out his run as one of the game’s greatest ever in style.
