First it was a dynamic guard and forward duo
Then it was a guard and a big man
Then it was two towers
then it was a big three
Now what is the blueprint of building a championship contender?

Speed? Athleticism? Small? :confused:

The game is getting Bigger, faster and skillful.

In 20 years, you're going to have big men shooting 3 pointers at 40%.

You got guys that dont play with heart and much less talent in the league. In the 90s you had a star on almost every team. Now? You got 2-3 legit stars

There is already plenty of big men shooting 3 pointers at 40%, Steve Novak is around 6'10" and he shot 48% last year.

That's one. And Novak is more of a SF than a PF/C which is more of who I think he meant by "big men." Anyways, I'm pretty sure he meant a larger number of big men would be doing so, not just a few outliers.

that's always been the million dollar question , if anybody knew the exact answer - their team would always win them.

Bargnani, Fry, Dirk, Love, Troy Murphy off the top of my head. They exist.

At the OP, it looks like the history of your NBA began with the onset of Jordan/Pippen's Bulls...

There is only a blueprint as long as some team is there to break that blueprint. Nothing is permanent, and the matchups a team faces in the post-season are just as important as anything else.

You're focusing too much on positions, anyway. I'd think more along the lines of defense, synergy, closers and/or players who will consistently step it up in big games, depth, elite coaching, health. How that team is constructed based on what positions their best players play is secondary to having those facets (and others) to the team.

There's no blueprint to winning. Not in terms of players anyway. There are certain qualities that your team must have, such as consistent defense, balanced offense, rebounding, etc. I guess you could say the blueprint to winning is having balance. But there's no single way to construct a championship team.

The "blueprint" is somewhat still the same as it was in the past. Get a dominate big (PF/C) with a dynamic scoring Guard(or SF) and you'll be set. Of course your team will need to be consistent on the defensive end, have a well balanced offense, and lastly you'll need a great coach.
