What does it say about a great NBA player who never wins the Championship? As it stands right now, Allen Iverson will retire never reaching his ultimate goal. To me this makes A.I. and others a collection of the greatest losers in NBA history.
Iverson will be remembered for a lot of things; sweet hair styles, making neck tattoos ok in the work place, and the toughest 5’ ft nothing guard to lace them up.
All the players mentioned in the following list can be described, remembered, and pictured transcending the game in one way or another but ultimately finished there careers as 2nd place, runner up, first class great losers.
Some of the active great losers in the NBA are; Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, and sad but true Grant Hill. These men hypothetically still have a chance to avoid this list.
With it appearing that Iverson’s career will end without a title for sure I have created a top 5 list consisting 6 great losers from within Iverson’s generation. How can I name 6 on a top 5 list you ask? Stick around and see if your list matches mine.
