In whatever year LeBron James becomes eligible, he will be a slam-dunk selection for induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame. The only question will be whether he is also part of another exclusive club: Hall of Famers who won titles with two teams.
Some who have done it were the dominant players for both of their teams, like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the Bucks and Lakers. Others might have played a smaller role with their second team, like Robert Parish being a backup for the Bulls after being the starting center for three championship teams in Boston. Here's a look at all those who collected a ring in two cities also being personally enshrined in Springfield:
NBA Hall Of Famers With Titles For Two Teams
Kareem's first title came with Milwaukee in 1971 as he and Oscar Robertson guided the Bucks to the only championship in franchise history.
After being traded to the Lakers, Kareem collected titles in 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988.
In 1966-67, Chamberlain averaged 24.1 points and 24.2 rebounds to lead the 76ers to a 68-13 regular-season record and the NBA championship.
After being traded to the Lakers, Wilt lost his first two Finals appearance, to Celtics in 1969 and the Knicks in 1970. But in 1972, Chamberlain and Lakers capped a season that included a 33-game winning streak and a 69-12 record by wiping out the Knicks in the Finals.
Wilkes won NBA rookie of the year in 1975 when he and Rick Barry helped the Warriors win the title, sweeping the Bullets in the Finals.
Wilkes then became the part of three title teams with the Lakers in 1980, 1982 and 1985.
Walton was the catalyst to Portland's 1977 NBA championship team. In the clinching Game 6 against the 76ers, Walton had 20 points, 23 rebounds, 7 assists and 8 blocks.
Injuries derailed his career, but Walton earned the NBA's Sixth Man Award in 1986 in helping the Celtics win the third and final championship of the Larry Bird era.
Johnson was NBA Finals MVP in 1979 when the Seattle SuperSonics won the only championship in franchise history.
The Celtics acquired Johnson to help contain 76ers guard Andrew Toney, who had earned the nickname The Boston Strangler. Johnson helped the Celtics win titles in 1984 and 1986.
Rodman was a key reserve on Detroit's championship teams in 1989 and 1990.
Then he replaced Horace Grant as the starting power forward on the Bulls and was a part of Michael Jordan's second three-peat.
The Chief was the center of Boston's three title teams in the Bird era.
He picked up one more ring as a reserve on the Bulls' 1997 championship team.
Martin was part of the George Mikan-led Lakers that won four NBA titles in the early 50s.
He was then a member of the St. Louis Hawks in 1958 when they beat the Celtics in the Finals for the franchise's lone championship.
Risen is No. 19 in the picture above of the Celtics' 1957 NBA championship team. It was the first in franchise history. Risen also won in 1951 with the Rochester Royals.
Lovellette is usually known for being the answer to this trivia question: Who was the first player to win an NCAA title, an Olympic gold medal and an NBA championship? Lovellette won three NBA rings, with the Lakers (1954) and Celtics (1963, 1964).
Technically, Shaq is not part of the group yet, because he doesn't become eligible for Hall of Fame induction until 2017, but that's merely a formality. O'Neal led the Lakers to a three-peat in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
After being traded to Miami, Shaq helped Dwyane Wade and the Heat earn their first title in 2006.
