With all the information available can we please stop using intellectually lazy and superficial ways of judging teams?
I don't even necessarily disagree with your conclusion but your reasoning is just so nonsensical and inconsistent.
There is a difference between 3 franchise players and guys who have made 7, 8, 9 allstar games and someone who gets in based on a team record and the only time they are in it.
Congrats you are finally willing to look a little deeper than your usual lazy analysis (e.g. losses with home court, winning a franchises first title, counting the number of allstars)
So now since you were able to look into a situation deeper when it involves your idol can you not do the same when it comes to someone you have admitted to being a hater to?
Just as there are differences there, there are other differences in supporting cast other than just number of allstar appearances. Sure the second and third best player are good on the Heat but their skill sets overlap with the best player and then the 4th-10th players are much worse than other elite teams. Additionally they are not elite defenders and rebounders which is the best way to complement a dominant perimeter player.
Lebron should have been the consensus MVP much sooner than it was finally conceded. One of the main arguments against him both this year and when he lost to Rose was supporting cast. Again if we look beyond the number of all star appearances its not that strong of a cast compared to elite teams today and definitely not of the past. Of course you think they would win 55 games without Lebron so its clear that you are just counting all star appearances.
Your emotions fuel the narratives that you create. You see what you want to see. You believe what you want to believe. You ascribe meaning when it is not there. You create significance when it is not present.
