Among team sports, the NBA is the most individualistic, where one superstar player can come in and take over the game. To avoid choosing talented young players who haven’t made it very far yet, I only looked at players who were retired or have played at least 10 years in the NBA. For some of them, it’s surprising to see that they never made a deep run despite their immense star power.

Who are the greatest NBA players to not: Win a Finals MVP, win an NBA championship, make the Finals, make the Conference Finals, make the Conference Semi-Finals, or make the NBA Playoffs?

To determine the greatest players who fell short at each juncture, I prioritized MVPs, All-Stars and All-NBA selections. Raw stats didn’t factor as much because it’s hard to compare players from different eras going solely by it.
