Here you are, two outs left in the bottom of the ninth inning of game seven of the World Series. There’s a runner on third, and your team is down by one run. The game is in your hands. The pitcher throws a fastball down the middle, and you hit a ground to the shortstop.
With every breath in your body, you hustle down the line to beat the throw to first. You run through the bag and look bag for the umpires call. OUT. You’re not alone; you just belong on this list of superstars who never won a championship.

Dan Marino carried the Miami Dolphins to the Super Bowl in his second year in the league. He broke every passing record on his way to the big show but ran into the brick wall that was the San Francisco 49ers and had his heart broken in the process.
Playing for the Dolphins for 16 more seasons, the most prolific passer of his time never made it back to the Super Bowl. His last game was one of the worst games in NFL history. Miami lost to the Jaguars 62-7 in a playoff game with more turnovers than touchdowns for the legend. Next, the greatest NBA star who never won it all!
