  1. Jrue Holliday, while a good player, isn't the...

    Jrue Holliday, while a good player, isn't the level of player we are discussing. The top players on a super team are the top players in the league. I'd say top 5 or 10 players in the NBA. The current...
  2. There's a difference between KAJ joining a sub...

    There's a difference between KAJ joining a sub par Lakers team with no other super stars and that team eventually becoming great and 2 or 3 super stars joining a team together to make it great. The...
  3. When i responded to that survey, i marked the...

    When i responded to that survey, i marked the 2014 Cavs as "ish" not because of lebron joining but because of Love. I believe lebron and Love pushed for that trade so they could play together. I...

    But you're missing the point. Kobe didn't force a trade to the Lakers, especially not to play with Shaq. He did not want to play for the Hornets but there were several teams he'd have been happy to...
  5. How i define a super team is a team constructed...

    How i define a super team is a team constructed through trade or free agency in which at least one top/hof level player has influence in joining other top/hof level players. This cannot happen...
  6. The Warriors before Durant, the Thunder and the...

    The Warriors before Durant, the Thunder and the Spurs were great teams. The Warriors were one of the best teams of all time. They were not super teams though. Not by my definition of a super team.
  7. I think we have completely different definitions...

    I think we have completely different definitions of a super team then. That's fine, I suppose. It's subjective. But, I don't define super teams by the quality of the players on the team. The term...
  8. Kareem wanted to be in a larger city. But the...

    Kareem wanted to be in a larger city. But the team he was joining was not super. The 74 Lakers were under .500. Their best player was Gail Goodrich. Yes, they became the showtime lakers. They became...

    Kareem was traded to the Lakers in 1975. That was well before Magic and Worthy were even drafted by the Lakers.

    A home grown team,which is built through the draft process, can be a great team but...

    Agreed. Durant joining that Warriors team made them a super team.
  11. For me, the reason the draft process is so anti...

    For me, the reason the draft process is so anti super team is because the players have almost no say in when or where they are drafted. So OKC with harden, westbrook, and durant was not a super team....

    Pretty much. I mean players could still get traded but players didn't have that kinda pull back then.
  13. Not sure exactly how Kareems lakers were formed...

    Not sure exactly how Kareems lakers were formed but to my knowledge no player forced their way to the Lakers to play with Magic.
  14. I think your definition of a super team is...

    I think your definition of a super team is different than mine then. To me, it's not just about the caliber of players on the team but the players involvement in joining the team.
  15. I agree. "Super" team does not mean better team....

    I agree. "Super" team does not mean better team. I used the 2012 Lakers when Howard was traded there as an example of a super team and that team because of injuries and such was just a bad team .
    ...
  16. The Warriors were not a super team until maybe...

    The Warriors were not a super team until maybe after Durant joined them. A super team has to have the factor of at least one top player demanding or manipulating his way onto a team with other top...
  17. IMO a super team is formed not just through free...

    IMO a super team is formed not just through free agency and trade but also a players direct involvement in forcing their way to a good team. A good example of this is the 2012 Dwight Howard trade to...

    Its not that i disagree with you about police departments. And im not saying we should trust all police or that police shouldn't be heavily monitored or scrutinized. In fact, i think thats a huge...

    This is a typical "argument from authority" in that doctors have more education, therefore we must trust them over law enforcement. First of all, just because police don't have the same education as...

    Why is it a dumb comparison? I'm not talking about the numbers of covid vs the numbers of murders/violent crimes. Obviously, covid kills more people. But I'd be willing to bet a parent of a teenager...

    As noble as it is for you to wear 7 masks and get 27 boosters to combat covid.

    Seriously, explain this mentality to me. With covid it's "trust doctors" or "trust Fauci" but with police there's no...

    I'm not saying that at all. First of all, I'm not in favor of randomly profiling anyone for any "reason", especially race. However, the conduct and behavior of police towards citizens can make...

    The thing is, i never minded when i was profiled by police. I would say from 17-20, i was pulled over on average about once a month. The difference was the police were never unprofessional or rude...
