Terrell Owens Wants “Ring Culture” Crowd To Sit Down!
When it comes to NFL Baller Terrell Owens, he would really like the “ring culture” crowd to take a seat…
CelebnSports247.com has learned that the TO feels that championships shouldn’t account for everything when it comes to respecting an athlete’s greatness.
To be honest, they don’t but the truth is our society has been conformed to define individual athletes by their achievements. The same goes for celebrities. It’s sad but true, however, here is what Terrell Owens is saying…
Owens recently spoke out about his feelings on the heels of 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony announcing his retirement last week … and the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver told us although the Syracuse legend never won an NBA ring, he’s still an all-time great.
T.O. and Melo have something in common – during their respective sports during their playing days, both of them were never able to reach the pinnacle before walking away for good.
With that being said … TMZSports asked T.O. about the folks trying to discredit ringless résumés … and he feels it should have zero impact when it comes to legacy.
Owens said at LAX:
Not everybody gets to win a championship…That’s not the defining thing. Obviously, as an athlete, you want to compete. You obviously want to win a championship, but sometimes that’s not in everybody’s cards.
T.O. defended Melo … saying his body of work in the pros playing most notably for the Nuggets and Knicks “speaks for itself” and warrants respect.
If you recall, former NY Giants running back Tiki Barber was one of the biggest talking heads to compare Melo to T.O.
Obviously one of the all-time greats. You’re not even questioning his skill. You don’t question T.O.’s skill. But, you do start to question the winning. Did he ultimately win?
Being none affected by Tiki’s perspective, Owens said confidently:
He’s going to be a Hall of Famer…And for me, a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, well, you don’t have a ring.’ Well, essentially, he will have a ring. I do have a ring. I have a Hall of Fame ring, and not a lot of people can say that.
