This wasn't like the Lakers w/ Jabbar, Magic, and Worthy or the Celtics w/ Bird, McHale, Parish

Kukoc and Rodman, with proper spacing from the perimeter, and Jordan/Pippen. Ron Harper too. I think of the Bulls as more of a defensive superteam. Roles properly defined, but they were overall loaded...Jordan and Pippen could simply handle the scoring load and also make guys better along with the triangle. Same feeling for the Lakers.

But I can see why people disagree. However, a team with Rodman/Jordan/Pippen is just hard to beat or score on...Harper can defend too. They're sorta like what the Heat are modeled after, except they were smart enough not to go small

But to make another point about superteams. How smart would it have been for Lebron to stay with the Cavs, and watch as teams that were drafted like the Spurs/Thunder or teams that acquired one free agent like the
Heat with Bosh win championships with better teams.

He's supposed to rely on Dan Gilbert to get him the piece that brings Cleveland a title? No.

I just hate that he followed 2 other superstar free agents (one being his biggest rival), and looked to make it extremely easy for himself. He said he thought they could win 7 championships, and may have been serious, because on paper that team is ridiculous (especially the way Wade was playing). That just felt like he didn't want to earn it, he just wanted the easy way out.
