NBA Finals: Which players have won the most NBA Championships?

The leaderboard for most NBA Championships by a player is dominated by members of the league's first and only decade-long dynasty - the Boston Celtics of the 1960s.

Hall of Famer and Celtics legend Bill Russell is at the top of the table, winning 11 titles in his 13-year playing career. Russell's last two titles in 1968 and 1969, were in the dual role of a player and coach.

Horry, meanwhile, won his seven championships with three teams in a span of 13 years.
