    The NBA is full of dynasties. And it means there are a lot of talented players without rings. So here are the best NBA players to never win a title. Parameters: no active players (sorry, Vince Carter) and no one who entered the league before the 1970-71 season (apologies Walt Bellamy, Nate Thurmond and others).

    One of the sport’s most prolific chuckers, Pistol Pete set the NBA record for points in a game by a guard by dropping 68 on the Knicks in a 124-107 win on February 25, 1977. The mark’s since been cracked by David Thompson, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Devin Booker. He led the league in scoring that season at 31.1 points per game, but never made it past the second round of the playoffs.
