LeBron James and Danny Green created history as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals.
James and Green are just the third and fourth players in NBA history to win a championship with three different teams, while James becomes the first player ever in NBA history to win Finals MVP with three different teams.
James was previously tied with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers) and Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors) as the only players to win Finals MVP with two different teams.
Now, James stands alone at the top of the mountain.
Following James and Green's historic achievement, we break down the exclusive club they just joined, which currently only has two other members.
LeBron James (Heat, Cavaliers, Lakers)
After making the Finals twice before, LeBron's first championship came in 2012 as a member of the "Big 3" Heat alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
James was named Finals MVP on both occasions, before returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers after four seasons in South Beach.
His third title, and arguably one of the greatest championship wins of all time, came against the famed 73-9 Golden State Warriors where they overturned a 3-1 deficit.
Not to mention one of the most iconic Finals plays of all time:
Now, after defeating the Heat and capturing his fourth Finals MVP, LeBron adds yet another line item with his name to the record books. He put on a show in the 2020 Finals, averaging 29.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists while shooting 59.1 percent overall.
Danny Green (Spurs, Raptors, Lakers)
Green won his first championship with the Spurs, ironically against LeBron and the Heat in 2014 in five games.
His second act came alongside Kawhi Leonard last season as a member of the Raptors, who won the franchise's first NBA championship, beating the Warriors in six games.
In six games against the Warriors, Green averaged 7.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game on 39% shooting from the field and 36.4% from the 3-point line.
After missing a potential game-winning three at the end of Game 5 of the 2020 Finals, Green bounced back with 11 points and 5 rebounds in the Game 6 clincher to put away the Heat and etch his name next to LeBron's. He finished the 2020 Finals averaging 7.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1 steal per game.
Robert Horry (Rockets, Spurs, Lakers)
Horry has enough rings to open a jewelry store, finishing his career with seven championships across three different teams.
His first two rings came as a member of the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995. He went on to win three more rings with the Lakers during their 3-peat from 2000-02 alongside Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, before picking up two more rings with the Spurs in 2005 and 2007 — the latter being LeBron's first Finals.
Horry developed a reputation for his clutch shooting, earning the nickname "Big Shot Bob," coming up in big moments again and again for his teams.
Horry is one of just 12 players to win six or more championship rings.
John Salley (Pistons, Bulls, Lakers)
Salley was the first player in NBA history to win three championships with three different teams.
His first two rings came in back-to-back seasons with the Detroit Pistons in 1989 and 1990, before winning his first away from the Pistons as a member of the 72-10 Chicago Bulls in 1996.
Playing alongside Horry for the Lakers in the 1999-00 season, Salley won his fourth NBA championship with his third different team. He retired after that season, proclaiming he had won "four championship rings, with three different teams, in three different decades and two different millenniums"
Tough to beat.
