The Ingredients to Building a Dynasty

Written by: Brian Tseng

If you want to build a good NBA team you start by assembling as many All-Stars as possible and then filling your roster around them.  However, if you want to build a championship NBA team, how the roster fits together and how the pieces complement each other is just as important as the pieces themselves. Winning one championship means you were the best team in the NBA for one year.  To win multiple championships and establish yourself as a potential NBA dynasty, you need a balanced roster with players that fill certain roles.

Winning two NBA championships solidifies your spot in history and demonstrates that you had one of the best teams of your era.  Three championships in one decade proves your team was one of the best teams of all time with some of the best players of all time.  I’ve created a list of certain types of players your team need to have in order to build an NBA champion.

Consider it a list of ingredients, except in this case the more players you have of these types will almost always improve your final product.  Having players which fulfill multiple requirements is even better, but it’s important to cover as many of these roles as possible.
