We already know that Bill Russell has most NBA Rings (11) and probably nobody can beat that record. But, we have a list of players (who has the most Championship Rings) per year, amongst active players.

So, when Bill Russell retired, someone else was the Lord of the Ring in the NBA.

This list is very interesting and you will see who has the most Rings this season.

Check who has most Championship Rings, year by year.
