To win an NBA championship you need good players, duh. But this list shows what to look for when critiquing a team’s roster and trying to determine how well this team will work in reality as opposed to on paper. Every contributing player to a championship NBA team can be categorized under one or several of these categories.
It shows how well a team is put together and what key ingredients winning teams need. The Lakers have a team that is well-balanced and fulfills all of the above criteria. They have players at each required position: passers, shooters, slashers, stoppers, role players, big men, and superstars. They are poised to win one more championship and solidify their legacy as one of the greatest teams of all time.
One more championships ties the Lakers with the Celtics for most championships in league history. One more after that gives LA fans the honor of saying with no room for argument, that the Lakers are the greatest NBA franchise of all time. Let’s keep’em coming.
