Default Remember back in the Summer 2010?

Van Gundy predicting Heat will break Bulls win total and Lakers win streak:

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/4...-1995-96-bulls

I seem to remember some saying the Heat might win 80 games.

Lebron says he's never played on a super team, but everyone thought that was going to be be a super team.

2011 Miami was given a 45% chance (6/5 odds = expected to win 5 times and lose 6 times) to win the title.

The 2016 Warriors were given a 66% chance (1/2 odds = expected to win 2 times and lose 1 time) to win the title after adding Kevin Durant

Now, THAT is a Super-Team.



If you are going by remarks from a few people, some people thought the 2013 Lakers were going to break records, including their own player Ron Artest.

The difference is GS had already made two straight finals trips and won a title before KD joined, making them a super team created out of an organic one whereas Miami was created as a modern superteam of superstar FAs in their prime otained in one single off-season plus an abundance of role players in that one said off season period too.
