Not everyone can get three championships. Here's a look at the honorable mentions, some of the best players with rings on two of their fingers:
• LeBron James: It took James seemingly forever to get his first ring, but now, it doesn't feel like he's ever going to stop racking up jewelry. The Heat have been to the NBA Finals four years in a row, have won two straight and may be on the way to their third this season. At just 29 years old, who knows how many more championships LeBron has in him?
• Chris Bosh: We've got to get all the Heat guys on here, right? For all the grief Bosh takes, the guy may be a future Hall of Famer and is one of the best shooting big men of his generation.
• Ray Allen: The all-time three-point leader got his first ring as a member of that 2008 Boston Celtics championship team. His second one came just last season in Miami. Like LeBron and Bosh, he has a chance to earn No. 3 in June.
• Norris Cole: Cole has won 100 percent of the championships that have happened since he's entered the NBA. Is it bold to say this won't continue for the rest of his career?
• The rest of the Heat: Yes, Shane Battier, Mario Chalmers, Joel Anthony, James Jones and everyone else on LeBron's Miami teams have two rings, as well.
• Pau Gasol: Gasol got his two championships with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010. Like Bosh, Gasol gets lots of flack, but his 18.6 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in the 2010 Finals were integral to LA's victory.
• Andrew Bynum/Lamar Odom: Both of these guys are question marks for next season. Over the last two years, Bynum has played in a total of 26 games for four organizations (including the Bulls), and now finds himself teamless. Odom, meanwhile, didn't play in the NBA this past season, but has himself a contract for next year with the New York Knicks.
