Default Measurement of Success....

What's the measurement of success? Is it rings? Stats? Being in the record books without a ring? Being considered a good teammate? If you had to choose just one to define being a successful NBA player what is it?

one thing to measure an NBA player would have to be MVP. Almost every Hall of Famer gets one and it really reflects their career as they usually get it at the top of their career.

MJ Kobe Bron KG Mailman Sir Charles Larry Legend Magic

all have the trophy need I say more

Another thing would be if a player can change his franchise around and turn it into a contender. For example, when Duncan was drafted he changed the face of the spurs in his rookie year and even though they didn't win a championship on his rookie year, there was hope for fans in years to come. The same goes for Chauncey Billups in Denver, Hedo on Magic, Garnett and Ray Allen on the Celtics.

Then you have the players who have failed to this such as Elton Brand and so on.

The drafting of Duncan was a fluke San Antonio was a very good team that lost the Admiral to injury in that draft year. They got lucky with the ping pong balls the rest is history.

ye i would say the same. Plus, the mvp is probably a great achievement as well, when Steve Nash turned Suns into a contender=mvp.
