    Which teams did you think looked GREAT on paper, but just never did anything?

    There have been some really great players put together that just never ended up doing very well together. One of ones that comes to mind for me is the 89/90 Hawks:

    PG: Doc Rivers (29)
    SG: Sidney Moncrief (33)
    SF: Dominque Wilkins (31)
    PF: Kevin Willis (28)
    C: Moses Malone (35)

    I always thought that line-up was great, even if Moncrief was 33 and Malone was 35, but Bob Weiss (the coach that year) insisted on playing Jon Koncak over Malone and gave Moncrief limited minutes. The team only won 43 games and got knocked out in the first round.

    What teams did you think looked great on paper but just couldn't get it done?
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    97 Rockets with Drexler, Barkley, and Olajuwon all either 33 or 34. Kevin Willis was also on that team.

    Bosh
    James
    Shane
    Wade
    Chalmers

    Allen
    Lewis
    Beasley
    Cole
    Oden
    Haslem

    On paper this team had one out of a million chance of being #1 on worst lost in finals history list.

    Brooklyn last season comes to mind for sure. And obviously the Lakers team with D12 and Nash as others have mentioned.

    the Nash led Suns and the Durant led Thunder have always managed to disappoint.

    First that came to my mind too. I remember being terrified to watch Lakers games because of the fear of how dominant they'd be. I was terrified of them. On paper those pieces just seemed to match so damn perfectly.

    Great pick! I remember thinking they had $#!T locked up that year.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    I attributed that more to injury (Kobe missed the playoffs, Nash missed the first half of the season, I think MWP missed the last half and DH12 was playing with a bad back.

    Wow 2 mentions of Brooklyn last year. I'm honestly surprised they made it as far as they did.
