You certainly define something as more than Joe Johnson, so are you talking about guys like Stephen Curry, Westbrook, Al Jefferson, Marc Gasol level players? If that's the case, then I'd somewhat agree with you, but then they still wouldn't be contenders.

Cause really, a lot of teams have "nice pieces" but if you define something as a great player.. then all of those teams probably get propelled to contending status, regardless if they're not 18-9.
You put Marc Gasol on this team and they're definitely a contender in the East. A frontcourt of Gasol, Horford and Josh Smith could really exploit Miami's weaknesses. With the Teague/Williams combo then complimenting in the backcourt along with good role players like Kyle Korver, that would be a really nice team. Yeah, that's the kind of "something" I'm talking about.
