There is no shortage of big names who never got a chance to wear a ring. Who is the big name in your mind that deserved it but never had that chance?
sort by best latest
No doubt. Stand up player too. Totally deserved one. Just ran into some great teams at some bad times.
So many baseball greats had their hearts broken by the Yankees. Tony Gwynn. Mike Piazza. Williams.
Don't forget nine-time All-Star Jeremy Roenick of the Blackhawks or Ernie Banks of the Cubs.
You always forget Ted didn't win one. For awhile I thought Nolan Ryan didn't either. Yeah, Teddy deserved a ring.
Also I'd include OJ Simpson. Due to his issues off the field, his athletic accomplishments have become overshadowed. Arguably, he's still a top 5 all time running back and one of the iconic athletes of the 70s.
The problem was his team was so enamored with getting him the ball that they became predictable and easy to beat. A real shame.
Pistol Pete. For sure. I never got to watch many of his games but I heard he was an amazing player. He was sort of a Dick Butkus, never got playoff opportunities.
