What is a superteam? It’s a unit composed of multiple players with high talent, thus making it nearly impossible to topple the team. Every match against them is a David and Goliath story; except David only wins on occasion. Several franchises have tried to assemble superteams over the years and some have failed. The successes have led to sleepless nights from opposing coaches. Some say they aren’t fair while the fans of the teams will tell you to stop complaining. For better or for worse, these superteams are top-ranked.
2011-14: If You Can’t Take The Heat, Join Them
Before assembling one of the terrifying teams in NBA history, Dwayne Wade was on his own in Miami. He averaged 26.6 points per game (ppg) in the 2009-10 season but couldn’t win a title by himself. LeBron James and the Cavaliers were knocked out of the playoffs and then “The Decision” happened.
Not one, not two, but three superstars joined forces on the Miami Heat to create a team that was incredibly hard to beat. Two out of the four years they played together were championship seasons. The trio of James, Wade, and Chris Bosh will go down in history.
