I don't think we need to list all the Blazers, Jazz, and Nets players from early 90s, late 90s, and early 2000s respectively who are 0-2... but interesting topic anyway.

Lol about Dampier, but I find it interesting that making the finals and losing makes you a loser. Crazy how society is. We expect instant gratification and have this if you aint first you are last mentality. That really soils the legacy of careers. With that said, the Baylor stat is :speechless: and no disrespect at all is meant by this statement. it is just interesting.

Baylor was forced to against Russels Celtics almost every year and I believe the first year he retired was when the Lakers with Wilt and West finally broke through in '71-'72

You must not know how to use ironic correctly.....I bet you think LeBron is the best player in the league too.

First of all, the context in which he used ironic was correct, at the very least colloquially. Second, LeBron is the best player in the league. Still, no need to fixate on the same issue over and over again and go off topic on this thread.

And the guys who have lost multiple times have been on inferior teams almost every time. Has to suck to make it to the Finals on several occasions and never be able to achieve what is so close.

this is a terrible way to judge a career. "losers" .... maybe his team was bad? example, lebron's 07 cavs. kobe has lost in the finals the same number of times lebron has....

There's a worse example in hockey and it happened pretty recently too.

Marian Hossa played for the Penguins in the 2008 Stanley Cup Final against the Red Wings and lost. He was a FA that year and signed with the Red Wings in hopes of catching a repeat. In 2009 the Red Wings went to the finals and again played the Penguins, this time losing lol.

He got lucky playing for Chicago in 2010 though and finally won his chip after 3 straight finals appearances with 3 different teams.
