    He gives Wilt a pass for joining Jerry West and Elgin Baylor because he was "past his prime", but completely ignores that Wilt was coming off an MVP season.

    Also leaves off that Moses Malone who was coming off an MVP season joined a Sixers team that had made the Finals 2 of the previous 3 years.

    He tries to make it seem like team hopping is a fairly new thing and teams back then won organically, but in reality it's always been a thing, just not as popular as it later became.

    True...but other than that, spot on.

    The Superteam Era of superstar friends hooking up with superstar friends sucked. Hopefully Joker and crew put an end to that trash era

    Joker already said luka can join him if he becomes unhappy in Dallas . If Murray falls off and he’s had injury issues then Denver’s front office will go star hunting

    You won't like the recent comments Jokic made about Luka.

    Overall we're on the right path, Giannis Bucks a few years ago, the Warriors two years ago, DEN last year...no superstar colluding. No one really counts the last superstar chip, the Mickey Mouse ring so like I said, things looking up

    This is an actual quote from the video. I lost IQ points watching this.

    The downside of social media like YouTube is there is no quality bar. Whatever low IQ viewpoint you have can be vomited for all to see.

    I feel wrong for even dignifying this garbage, but even a middle school student could invalidate this lazy perspective. The quality of a team is largely based on Front Office decisions. Maybe the maker of this video should revisit that simple notion. The Chicago Bulls were one of the greatest teams because Krause and Reinsdorf drafted well, traded for Pippen, found role players like Rodman, Grant, etc. If your team doesn't have the budget or makes bad choices, your options are to languish on a losing team forever or be pro-active and assemble one.

    There's nothing more to say.

    For all the talk by Jordan fans that the GOAT debate isn't close, most of them are honestly quite shook by this dude Even Jordan himself agreed to greenlight the Last Dance immediately after the 2016 Finals.

    This isn't Jordan vs LBJ, not once have I even mentioned MJ. MJ isn't the only star that won organically, not even close. This is about the trash Superteam era brought to you by James.

    Keep up...

    Someone clearly better will make them even worse. Hopefully Wemby is.

    You can tell who only watches certain teams (in limited quantities) every year and promotes narratives instead of studying what's going on in the league. It's people like TheCousinFu...I mean, OP.

    He is, and I just showed you why.

    It wasn't just Lebron joining a talented team though. Another all star came along to join their all star friend and they even took less money to do it. Other guys had to take less money to be role players on the team as well. It was almost a whole new team around them not one guy joining an already talented team. Which is a big reason it wasn't as easy as "not 1, not 2..." Totally different than anything before
