The 20 Greatest NBA Players to Never Win an NBA Championship

11. Allen Iverson

This is the man that crossed MJ, teabagged Marcus Camby, and made Tyronn Lue forever relevant. If you were an elementary schooler coming up watching the game in the late '90s and early 2000s, chances are you wanted to be like The Answer. His off-the-court antics were legendary, but the badassery A.I. used to pull on the court was straight up intense. Check out highlights from his 2001 MVP season if you need a reminder.

Actually, check out his performance in Game 1 of that year's Finals against the Lakers. Iverson had fans staring in awe and some Lakers fans shook when he dropped 48 points to snatch that game from Los Angeles. The Lake Show took the next four and A.I. wouldn't return to the Finals, but at least he still got the highlights.
