I'm somehow surprised that International managed to take the top spot.

Article is kinda incomplete without some kind of list of players. Are we supposed to guess them all? Lol

It's also a bit skewed - it doesn't count multiple championships (e.g., MJ and Lebron count as "1") and it counts people who were on a championship team regardless of contribution, so it basically is more of an idea of roster splits on championship teams.

I recall that as well.

FUN OCD FACT: Exactly 259 players are represented on that chart.

On that note, what other stories/information do you think I could make with that list of information? Been really struggling to churn out stories on the old website.

At the risk of sounding like a homer (which I am), I'm quite sure my Tar Heels are among the very top tier.
