Rememeber that superteam of 4 of the greatest players of all time on one team. With Kobe, Shaq, GP and Malone. Everyone on earth picked them to win the title. What happend? total implosion and the team was totaly dismantled afterward. There is only one ball and three big egos.

They where not all best of friends.

More importantly Shaq, Payton, and Malone were all older.

Payton and Malone were shells of their former selfs, Shaq wasn't the same player as 2000-2002 and Kobe wasn't yet the superbeing we see today.

Simply put, that wasn't any of those players in their primes, while this is ALL of them in their primes...

Total implosion? They made the Finals...

And Payton/Malone were not in their prime. Not even close.

Payton wasn't in his prime but went on to win one with the heat, so he still had some in the tank. Malone wasn't in his prime either, but did well that season. It's definitely not the same as what's happening with the Heat, but there's something to be said about throwing a few great players together and thinking they can just win. It's called a team, there has to be chemistry.

Beat LA! Beat LA! lol...I've been so sick of seeing the Lakers fans with their talented team talk smack. They were handed Gasol and they wanna cry about Lebron and Bosh deciding that winning is their biggest priority. Kobe has had it too good for too long but its gonna be all Miami from now on and I look forward to it...yes the Lakers are still the champs but I don't see that lasting much longer. James/Wade/Bosh just want it too badly or else they wouldn't of joined forces to take less money. Also think about it, their numbers won't go down much...they put up those numbers while facing double teams and forcing shots. Now they'll make things easier for each other and quite simply just dominate. If the Miller signing is for real just picture Wade driving the lane and drawing the defense then having the options of a wide open Miller 3, a cutting to the basket Lebron, or a alley oop to Bosh at the rim! Not to mention the James/Wade fast break highlight reel plays that will become quite routine. Just ridiculous!!!

That 04 team was unique. You 2 main players, Shaq and Kobe, hated each other. I think Shaq, Kobe, and Malone all missed time with injuries. And Payton and Malone had wore down by season's end imo.

This heat team will actually have players who like each other. Plus they have history of playing with each other in the Olympics and the world championships. So they have been through enough ups and downs to know each others personalities/games. Wade and Lebron even played together on that 04 team that loss, so they have some experience with failure together.

um the only reason that team lost was malone was crippled in the finals. the had to use walton and medevenko to guard sheed.
