Default What's the need for a super-team with Durant out? What was the need in 2011?

Once again, Lebron is attempting to create the only super-team in the league, like he had in 2011

Shameless

Luckily for the league it seems to have around only a 30% success rate.

A Davis played with Cousins, Holiday and Rondo and they were barely making the playoffs.. All of a sudden MJstans bitching about OLD BRon playing with a great big for the first time in his career.

ADavis is a great player but dont be a biatch and compare him to KD or even Kawhi.. He isnt on that level..

Funny how Kobe stans forget that the 2000 Lakers team had a SUPERTEAM.. Shaq, jkobe and Glen Rice.. BTW Glen Rice has as many all NBA nominations as BOSH AND LOVE combined..

Dont get me started on Rodman , Pippen, MJ, Kukoc, and BISON DALE. Meanwhile their best competition was Malone and Stockton.. A team that could never get over the hump whether MJ played or not

Oh OK, perhaps LeBron should get Kemba and Kawhi as well then?

Rice was 32 and well past his prime, so that's a desperate attempt to overrate the Laker cast

Now if you want to call the Lakers a superteam because of just Shaq and Kobe (2 top 10 all-time players), then that's fine, but lebron has something similar with AD (#3 all-time PER behind MJ and Bran)

Most importantly, Kobe won with just Gasol - only Kobe and MJ won multiple rings with one all-star teammate, except Shaq (who had Kobe) and Hakeem (when MJ was out of the league)..

Wtf? Kukoc and Dele were role players - why do you guys cite role players to counter lebron's star teammates?..

That alone shows how much the bulls lacked star power because you must cite role players

The reality is that the Bulls had the #1 offense in the league despite playing 4 on 5 with Rodman, and a weak-scoring Pippen - how did that happen???.. the bulls had the goat offensive player, that's how

Actually their best comp was the b2b champion Pistons, who had 3x all-stars at every starting spot - lebron never beat b2b champs, nor did he face a 1 to 4 deficit in all-star teammates like MJ did vs Isiah - MJ beat the Pistons' 5 all-stars with 1 all-star teammate

Secondly, the KD-less Warriors are 8-10 in the Finals and lost to everyone - this includes Kawhi, and also bran twice (if not for injuries in 15') - they're infact 0-3 in the Finals if not for injuries in 15'.. every Finals opponent that MJ faced would destroy them..

i.e. the 98' jazz swept shaq's 4 all-star Lakers and Popovich/Duncan/Robinson's Spurs, so they would crush the Warriors

Glad to see you admit that Lebron actually has FOUR RINGS/FMVPS.

Clearly the 2nd best player of all time.

Yet, 34yr old / 56,0000+ career minutes LeBron is still in his prime??

4 rings < 5 rings

4 rings < 6 rings

And

- 2011 choke
- 3 straight losses as the favorite from 09-11
- Record defeat in 14' despite even odds
- worst-ever Finals performance in 07'
- mental breakdowns in 10' ECSF, 11' Finals, and 18' Finals Game 1 OT
- only 51 wins and underdog status in 17' despite prime kyrie and love.. unable to win 60+ like Kawhi and have better odds

Utah was obviously getting over the hump in 97 and 98 if Jordan didn’t play. In fact you have some folks saying they should’ve won in 98 were it not for calls going a certain way

Bison Dele? Lol. Come on fam

Utah were expected to take out the Bulls in 1998. Going into the finals, a lot of pundits were sceptical about the Bulls' chances. They then proceeded to lose game 1 in overtime and the writing appeared to be on the wall.
Instead, they reeled off 3 straight wins including a 96-54 destruction in game 3 before taking game 6 after narrowly losing their first close out game.
