I think people will put any potential rings in proper context with Lebron and Wade on this Heat team.
But again, if people cared HOW you win your rings, Bird should be ranked behind Duncan in every list.
Duncan's 4 titles based on HOW he won them blows Bird's 3 out of the water. Its not close at all. Same with Hakeem's 2 vs Bird's 3. Again...not close.
Thats not how it works though for the most part.
People rank players here by overall production and rings. Not much emphasis on HOW rings are won actually.
