i think its kind of a visibility thing as well... when you think of Reggie Miller, or Stockton, or even Bird or Magic.... just the fact that those guys played for the same team their entire careers actually warrants more respect, IMO.
sure, the majority of those guy won rings and were part of great teams, but not all of them.
Reggie Miller for example had to deal with some major bums for a while... he didnt win a ring and never chased one, and while he wasnt the best of the best he was really good and i think gets more respect because he was loyal. i for one give him a bit more respect due to loyalty, and those bonus points push him up my personal NBA rankings when arguing about who was better than whom.
