I think fans and media who overvalue championships in judging a player and their legacy are far more to blame. This “can’t catch MJ” rhetoric influenced that Heat team being formed the same way it influenced KD joining the Warriors.
No rings and no foreseeable way of it happening on their current team? The great players get crushed for it. Some just accept their fate, some do whatever they can to get a championship and i don’t blame them one bit.
