If so they explain if not then why not? Me personally I say it does because stayed with the grind. He experienced everything you could with the bucks. From being a laughing stock, to losing in the conference finals after being up 2-0. To being heavy favorites in a year he won back to back MVPs and a defensive player of the year and being bounced out in the second round. He stayed with it. Thoughts?
Gianniss "hardest road" >>>>> KDs "hardest road"
KD’s hardest road was slithering to the bay
most of the rings won in nba history do lmao
Is there one that doesn’t?
any non superstar ring for instance, kds rings with the warriors mean more to his legacy than any patrick mccaw ring means to his
Prob not. Every team has lucked out some way or the other
No. Cleveland/Warriors finals was a fare match up.
Yes. 100x yes
All rings are rings But also yes
Yes, this one is better than Kevins rings. KD basically did the equivalent of losing his virginity to a hired prostitute in order for him to get his rings.
Theres nothing wrong with players going to better teams, but KDs situation was uniquely bad. So yes
No offense but who gives a shit, a ring is a ring is a ring
This logic makes no sense to me. Is Gary Payton’s ring equivalent to Dirk’s? The whole point of a ring when you’re comparing players is because it’s supposed to represent a level they could get to in difficult circumstances to win a title. Of cour
Dumb children give a shit unfortunately.
apparently KD is a dumb child also since he constantly keeps wanting to validate his rings .. you don’t see any other superstar doing that
A ring isnt just a ring. Ill explain later.
On paper yes but some rings definitely mean more to a players legacy than others. Those two GS rings did absolutely nothing for my view of KD legacy. If he won 2 with OKC hed probably be a top 10 player ever rn.
Yup, this is why everyone goes crazy over Brian Cardinals 2011 ring. Just as impactful and important as Giannis this year, or LeBrons in 2016 or the one on my finger now. A ring is a ring is a ring. Context is meaningless
1 ring on ur own, is better than multiple on a stacked superteam.
Except no ring is won alone...
There’s no i in Ring
This conversation is so stupid you could discredit this ring and say it doesnt mean anything because of injuries. A ring is a ring
championship is a championship
2 is more than 1
Two McDonalds hamburgers arent better than a gourmet burger.
yep, Giannis got 2 mvps
Good thing KD got two rings
Yes, to the Bucks fans.
And everyone else that isnt a KDickrider
They each count as one. But yeah, easily.
A rings a ring. But seriously though, KD joined a top 10 team of all time making them either the best or second best team of all time, which hurts him here. Giannis (and the rest of the entire league) got lucky that the Nets superteam got injured. Over
Giannis took the hard path. to me, yes, feel the same way about it. This one means more than any of KDs now.
I mean, to us as fans? Absolutely. To the players that win? Debatable.
LeBron’s win in Cleveland meant way more to him than any ring in Miami or LA. That seems obvious from how he responded to each win. I do think some mean more than others.
That’s one player, though (and I agree). I don’t think Durant thinks his rings are lesser than Giannis’s are. He still won rings and was Finals MVP both times.
Yes because KD doesnt have any rings
Always funny to see the Lebron haters who can’t stop thinking about him so they have to insert him into random posts that don’t involve him at all
Shaq and many other all time greats called last seasons ring one of the hardest rings ever won. . Any NBA player including Ryan Hollins opinion >>>>> r/nba Nephews.
Still salty ?
Yes no matter how much KD thinks his rings were "evenly matched"
Almost every ring means more than those rings.
It definitely feels the best being drafted by the worst team in the league and winning a championship without mega superstar trades/signings.
Fucking Certainly No offense to KD, but this is what he never managed in OKC, luck involved or not
I love Giannis but holy shit is this such a dead end question. I wish all NBA fans could just accept that every championship is a championship, and not have to pick apart each one to try and leverage their favorite player in a Twitter brawl.
A chip is a chip
Yes. This is why KD leaving OKC ruined any chance of him surpassing LeBron
Yes. Enough with the "post popular opinion" karma baiting
Warriors were already champions before KD joined, with or without KD warrior probably would’ve won another championships or two. KD just made it a lot easier besides the one where they choked
No. Only stupid people think that. A ring is a ring.
No, because the 17 warriors are in best team of all time discussion and this bucks team isnt close to that level.
50 point performance regardless of whether you think superteam rings are less or not it definitely does mean more.
KD said the rings with Warriors didnt gfeel as good as he thought they would feel. He was up 3-1 and joined the team that beat him. The Warriors were already one of the greatest teams of all time before KD went there. KD is a snake
Yeah, 100%. Maybe not as much right now but after his peak years are over (hes only 26), this will propel Giannis past KD.
99% of those rings do. I wouldnt even hate on those KD-Warrior rings if any of the series they played in were well fought.
Yes durants rings mean the least of any best player on a finals winning team
This weight like dirk’s ring, pretty significant
At the end of the day, both are champs. With that being said, I’d honestly say it’s equal. The Warriors were far and away the best team in the league when KD joined and they did what they were supposed to do. The Bucks and the Suns realistically shoul
Idk, I feel like KDs means little to nothing when compared to anyone else’s ring; you guys didn’t need him to win it all, he was a cherry on top. His addition was a glorified victory cigar
I guess it all depends on your personal criteria. I’d gladly trade both KD rings for that 2016 championship because it would’ve meant more.
Yes no bias
It means more than all of them combined. KD is watching Giannis do what he should have done years ago in OKC. But he gave up on the hard road and won his chips pretty much guaranteed. Huge KD fan and still think he is arguably the most well rounded NBA
Yes because its the story behind the ring that creates the legacy. Jordan going through the Celtics and pistons. The wars in the western conference in the early 2000s. Where would Shaq and kobe legacy be without the spurs. Thats the factor dirk has as
