Is it fair to judge a team athlete by the number of championships he/she has won?


In sports like golf, tennis, or track and field, I can see why an athlete would be defined by the number trophies they've won. But with so many variables involved in a team sport, why does it seem like the media defines a player by how many times they have won it all?

sort by best latest

    What portion of MJ's legacy have been molded by the media and marketing? Long before his first title he was a marketing god. Do you think that played a large part in defining him. Trophies aside...

    Bruce,

    I appreciate your response. So in short you believe that it boils down to the number of opportunities at the title. If they blow the opportunity then it's their business. LOL.

    But let's say that Mr. Star Player CAN raise the level of the supporting players but has a coach or ownership who's team philosophy is all screwed up. I think that there have been players that have been robbed of titles b/c of poor coaching.
