    NBA trade deadline probably brings the most traffic to twitter.

    I go both ways. As a fan of a smaller market who knows his team's only shot at a contender is to somehow land a stud in the draft. The bucks got giannis. The bucks got giannis to stay because they drafted him. But giannis isn't getting drafted by New York then leaving to come to Milwuakee and I know that. So seeing franchises like LAL and Brooklyn basically luck into supwr teams because they are an attractive market for stars to team up at is frustrating.

    But on the flipside, I'm not sure how excited I'd be to see Utah or Phoenix in the finals though either. For one year, it might be fun as a change of pace. But om the other hand, if I'm just a basketball fan and my team was eliminated and I just wanted to be entertained, LeBron and AD vs KD, Kyrie and Harden is much more appealing than something like Mitchell and Gobert vs Trae Young and Bogdan Bogdanovic.

    That's fair, followed closely by Chauncey and Rip dismantling the Lakers.

    Got to give credit to Rasheed and Ben for that too. It was amazing.

    Agreed, that was also impressive.

    Durant's rings were pretty weak. Most of those Celtic and Laker rings were pretty weak. LeBron's ring in Cleveland was stronger than any ring Jordan ever won. Detroit rings were pretty strong. The Spurs' rings were moderately impressive.

    Yes, the 90s bulls were a super team for that era. Absolutely.

    Cheating?

    LeBron formed a super-team in Miami to make sure he won rings. People didn't like that. But when he went to Cleveland with a lot less support around him (and ended that city's sports title drought), it was a heart warming story. James was hated for his first two titles but not his third. It's usually the other way around (like with Michael Jordan and Tom Brady).

    If they leave during FA, it's fine by me. If they demand a trade, I'm not a fan.

    I personally believe most want these players to try winning a championship with the team that drafted them then winning somewhere else. Thatís how I look at it.

    A Superteam is when guys join together who were stars to dominate the league. A Superteam isn't something where guys develop together and become good and then dominate the era.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    They have no control wgere they get drafted. That's like asking them to be happy deapite having no freedom.

    Thatís why I donít consider the Warriors pre-KD a super team. That team was drafted by the Warriors and was put together organically.
