With the weekend's NBA action complete we now know that the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will contest the 2014 Finals in the coming weeks.
That means a repeat of the 2013 season-defining series with the likes of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade set to do battle with Tim Duncan and co once more.
But whilst the world will be watching some of the all-time greats play out what looks set to be a tight series in the hope of adding to their ring collections, not everyone that will end up on the winning side is quite up to their level.
Franchises can decide themselves who is handed a coveted NBA Championship ring and that openness means that some frankly undeserving players can end up with one of the most highly sought after prizes in sport.
These five NBA also-rans have the chance to do what Allen Iverson and Karl Malone never managed and bag themselves a coveted ring thanks to bit part roles they have played through the season.
They better make sure they thank their teammates when that ceremony takes place though...
