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:
