What if the Nuggets win the title this year, instead of the Cleveland LeBrons?
That would give three of the next four players drafted after LeBron in 2003 a championship ring before him: Darko Milicic, Carlmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade.
If the Nuggets win, that would mean all three of those players got their ring in their first Finals appearance, while LeBron has already lost in the Finals before, in 2007 to the Spurs.
Yeah, I know Darko didn't really do anything to earn that ring, aside from warm the bench. But if the Nuggets do win, and Melo continues his ridiculous play as of late, then he will be the star of the team's title run. While Wade, as we all know, put on what it arguably the greatest Finals performance in NBA history.
But I don't want to jinx the Nuggets or anything (knock on wood), as this was just a random thought I had today in conversation with a friend. But wouldn't it be funny that three of the next four players drafted after "The Chosen One" all won titles before him?
Again though, just a thought.
