9 NBA Players With More Rings Than Michael Jordan

Bill-Russell

Many NBA legends have had phenomenal careers, but for one reason or another ended their career ringless. The likes of Allen Iverson, Chris Paul, Reggie Miller, Dominique Wilkins, Patrick Ewing, Steve Nash, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, and many others have never been lucky enough to wear the precious piece of jewelry.

Here are nine NBA players who have more rings than Michael Jordan:

7 — Jim Loscutoff

Loscy did not fit the traditional lanky frame of a basketball player from the 1950s and 60s; he was built like a bull and he played like one. Auerbach once said that Loscutoff had two jobs: “He was there to rebound and to make sure that nothing happened to Bob Cousy.”

Boston Celtics (1956-57, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64)

7 — Frank Ramsey

Although Ramsey never accumulated any eye-popping statistics during his nine-year career, he did finish with very solid numbers. He accumulated 8,378 points and 3,410 rebounds en route to career averages of 13.4 PPG and 5.5 RPG. His best statistical NBA season arrived in 1957-58 when he averaged 16.5 PPG, 7.3 RPG, and 2.4 RPG in 69 contests. Interestingly enough, that season was one of only two in which his team did not take home the NBA title.

Boston Celtics (1956-57, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64)

7 — Robert Horry

Every championship team has a player that’s a no stats all-star, someone who does the little things that don’t show up in the box score. Robert Horry crafted a memorable career out of being in the right place at the right time, making smart plays, and of course making clutch shots in big games. He never made an all-star team.

Houston Rockets (1993-94, 1994-95)
Los Angeles Lakers (1999-00, 2000-01, 2001-02)
San Antonio Spurs (2004-05, 2006-07)

8 — John Havlicek

When you spend 16 seasons playing for the same franchise in any sport, you become an immortalized figure in that town. When you win a title in half of those seasons, you become a legend of the game itself.

Boston Celtics (1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1967-68, 1968-69, 1973-74, 1975-76)

8 — Tom Heinsohn

Heinsohn’s professional career took off immediately upon his arrival in the Celtics organization. He was named NBA Rookie of the Year in 1957 after averaging 16.2 PPG and 9.8 RPG in 72 games. He helped a loaded Boston squad that featured the likes of Bill Sharman, Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, and Frank Ramsey win the NBA title in that very first season.

Boston Celtics (1956-57, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65)

8 — K.C. Jones

Jones began his illustrious career with the Celtics when the team selected him in the second round of the 1956 NBA Draft. All nine of Jones’ NBA seasons were played in Boston. Eight of them resulted in NBA championships.

Boston Celtics (1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66)

8 — Tom Sanders

Sanders averaged 9.6 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per game, but those numbers are not an indication of his impact or level of success. The only number that matters in regard to Sanders’ career is eight, which is the number of championships he helped bring to Boston.

Boston Celtics (1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1967-68, 1968-69)

10 — Sam Jones

Called "Mr. Clutch" by many of his peers, Sam Jones was one of the linchpins of the fabulous Boston juggernaut of the 1950s and 1960s. His uncannily accurate bank shots, lightning quickness, and cool demeanor helped the Celtics win 10 NBA Championships in the 12 years he played with the team.

Boston Celtics (1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1967-68, 1968-69)

11 — Bill Russell

There are champions, and then there is Bill Russell. Russell is the champion of champions, as he owns the most NBA championship rings of any player in the history of the game, with 11, and has been winning off the court for a half-century.

Boston Celtics (1956-57, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1962-63, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1967-68, 1968-69)
