NBA superteams annoy me (looking at you Nets, Lakers)

    Just collect superstars and you win titles, that's the NBA model now. Doesn't matter how well you draft or how well you're coached or your scheme or any of that. Nope. Just get as many of the top 20 players as you can on one team and basically no one can beat you.

    That's what the Nets did. They have James Harden, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, all huge names, and all have been considered among the top in the league, at least at some point in their career.

    Don't blame them as first it was the Heat. The Golden State. Then the Lakers. A single superstar can win you a title like Kawhi going to the Raptors but that formula is pretty quickly being fully erased.

    I'm a Mavs fan and basically I just have to hope they figure out how to get another superstar alongside Luka if we want any realistic shot to win a title now. Unless the stars align just perfectly like they did for my Mavs in 2011.

    Anyone else currently annoyed by NBA superteams, or is it just me?

    Same here. I barely watch NBA basketball anymore because of this. It's pretty much always the same exact game nowadays. It's silly to watch two teams hit over 70+ points a game. The entire game is just swapping goals and see who gets one closest to the buzzer now.
