Fly Like a Mosquito Bite's Theory of Sustained Excellence

Postby Fly Like A Mosquito Bite on Sun Apr 06, 2014 10:06 pm

Fly Like a Mosquito Bite's Theory of Sustained Excellence, the basics:

1. It's impossible to win a championship without a legit superstar or 4+ all-stars

2. Sustained excellence in 3+ straight seasons is not possible without a legit superstar

3. Minimum superstar talent needed for sustained excellence is a Dirk Nowitzki

I like your title
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

1. Detroit beat us in 04 without a legit superstar. They had 4 all stars a few years later, but not that year. In fact, Ben Wallace was the only Piston to make the All Star team that year.

2. I agree

3. See #1 above. Chauncey was the MVP of the Finals that year. Him or Ben Wallace was best player on that team. Clearly, they are WAY below Dirk's level of play.

Eggs and Chickens Isn't it? LeBron wasn't a "superstar" for most people until he won.... Kobe wasn't until he did it sans Shaq..... Magic was Tragic for most Laker fans until the mid to late 80's teams.... Hakeem was an athletic freak but not a superstar until he won..... Jordan was a star but not the legend until he won....

The Detroit example is a good one. I'd say their teams in the late 80's were similar as Zeke was not in his prime and not the best player in those 2 wins and 3 appearances.
