The 10 greatest athletes who never won a championship – In the world of professional sports, there are several players who seem to suffer from being “a bridesmaid,” as they say. They have incredible skills, everyone thinks they’re an amazing player, they become absolute legends in the sports world… yet, for whatever reason, that championship title always seems to elude them.

Some of the greatest athletes have the misfortune of being overshadowed by specific once-in-a-lifetime athletes who basically hog all the championships for themselves. Other athletes are just part of an organization that doesn’t really know how to use their talents, and could very well have won championships had they been on different teams. And, of course, sometimes it’s just pure bad luck.
What makes a great athlete is often subjective. Sure, something like pure skill can be somewhat assessed, but at the end of the day there will always be disagreements about who should have won a championship, and who simply didn’t deserve one and therefore never got one throughout their career.
Here are 10 of the greatest athletes who just never managed to snag that championship. We’re not saying it haunts them, but they probably stare at those victory pictures where athletes hold up the cup, or flash their championship ring, and wish they could have had that moment.
10. Patrick Ewing
Seven foot center Patrick Ewing, or ‘Big Pat’ as he was often known, was a huge part of the New York Knicks’ history – he played for them for 15 years, nearly his entire pro career! Ewing was hugely talented, racking up the points season after season, and though he made it to the NBA Finals with his team twice (1994 and 1999) he never managed to get that championship title.
Ewing’s skill is indisputable, and he was even inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2008. Why didn’t he get a championship? Well, he played during a time where there was a certain pretty skilled player by the name of Michael Jordan who won six championship titles within eight years. Sure, Ewing’s career was longer than eight years, but we can’t help but wonder if he would have won a couple if MJ hadn’t been dominating the sport at the time.
