Do you mean literally become a better player? Or the perception? I think they were all the same players, but the perception is much better. A Ring really makes you that much better in peoples eyes. If Nash had a ring he would without a doubt be looked at much better than he is now.

EDIT: Ex.. All rational basketball fans can agree that LeBron is the best player in the game. If Durant wins a ring this year, come preseason next year, it will be back to a debate just because Durant got that ring.
