    Question about non super star success

    How much success can a team that is 10 deep with productive players, young with potential, chemistry, great coaching and great defense go?

    Is it possible for that type of team to compete with a team of 2 or 3 super stars but secondary players every where else?

    If you owned a team would you rather have a team of 2 or 3 superstars and not too much else or a young exciting team that is able to throw good to very good but not great player after player after you?


    Last thing I want to say is this topic is not aimed at any team intentionally or unintentionally this is just a topic I think is discussion worthy and contrary to the super team idea and topics.

    Thanks for input and debate.

    Its possible, but you need a top notch defense and a locker room w/ zero divas to do it (see: 04 Pistons)

    Rare, but it happens

    You need that top dog who will carry the team down the stretch.

    Yup, most of the time you need that 1 guy who leads his team on and off the court. It has happened before though with a team that has one goal, and brings their A game on both ends of the floor, without a superstar.

    Winning without a superstar doesn't happen very often. The last time it did was with the Detroit Pistons when they eliminated the Lakers in the Finals. Considering how the league is design nowadays, you definitely need a team with at least two stars, 1 doesn't cut it anymore.

    I would take the superstar team as long as the secondary players are capable of performing well in the playoffs.

Melo will become the new Jordan of the league we are so lucky to have him!!!
