What Star/Superstar Players have come back from major injuries and led teams to NBA Titles as the Best Player on it.

Major Injuries I would assume would be guys who were out at least 3 months or so.

I know MJ did years after breaking his leg.
David Robinson won a title as the 2nd best player on his team


And the reason for this thread is mainly because of what happened to guys like Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard where both guys have had a major injury/surgery and out a good 3-6 months.
If they will be able to lead teams to titles as the best player on there teams.

Wade was out for awhile and came back the next year to average 30ppg. Didn't CP3 have a knee injury as well?

Edit: Said STAT, however, didn't lead team to a title. Still came back and was an MVP candidate though.

True, however this is more about not if they will come back and be good, but rather come back and be good enough to lead a team to a title as the best player on it.

Obviously MJ was the most famous one. Went back home and finished his degree during his time off.

Also Olajuwon injured his eye back in 1990, missed almost half the season.

Magic Johnson very early in his career for also about half a season.

Not sure who you are talking about because I don't start any threads on Jordan in the Main Forum or Comparisons forum. Not to mention the thread isn't about Jordan. It is about if guys who had major injuries can lead a team to a title as the best player on the team. And the thread specifically referred to Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose due to there injuries.

Hakeem missed 26 games in 1991.
