NBA losers than became winning players
 
Is there a better example than Zach Randolph?

He was cancerous in New York. An absolute disaster. It seemed like he was always a net negative even if he scored. Then he became a contributor in Memphis. They were a really tough team for years.


Are there any other players that lost their loser repuation that late in their career?

JR Smith is still kind of a loser. Lebron changed that. Not JR.

Jason Williams - went from a turnover machine to a championship contributer.

Dirk Nowitzki - Went from being bounced in the early rounds of the playoffs to beating the most stacked team in NBA history.

Gilbert Arenas - Went from nba statpadder to Instagram savage.

Michael Jordan - Went from your ordinary chucker being bounced in the early rounds on the regular to a 6 time championship.

This goes to show that with the right help, anyone can LOOK good.

Lebron

was missing playoffs and then choked in the Playoffs for 5 consecutive seasons before he met an even bigger choker in Harden with a young OKC squad, legit should have also lost 2 out of the 3 rings he did win but was bailed out by the league and his teammates.

Lebron, he went to Miami ask for help as he was tired of losing every single year

Rasheed was a good player but he was such a volatile headcase that Portland traded him away, then Atlanta gave him away for free to Detroit... and he became one of their three most important players on the championship team...

Does it matter if LeBron helped JR out?

You just want to argue that Zach Randolph is the only guy to ever turn it around.. you're being weird.

Nah because Ron Artest is another that I agree with from listed players.
