It isn't just about having a superstar, it's about having a decent team in place if you are lucky enough to get one. A superstar didn't get the Magic a chip when they had Dwight or Shaq. The Hornets didn't get a chip when they had Paul. The Cavs got close with Lebron, but most people say they never put a decent team around him. It isn't just the other players. Its the coaches, the culture of the organization.
The Pacers didn't have any superstars when they were putting there team together. There fans didn't even believe in them until they gave the heat all they wanted last year. The fans thought the team had no future because it lacked stars.
A good example of what not to do is the Nets. I can't think of an organization that has tried harder to force the issue with the superstar model. They traded the future for second tier superstars and now they have zero chance of getting a top pick before 2018.
If you can't get the top superstars in the league (lebron, durrant, george, A Davis) and we can't, you are better off trying to develop a well rounded team then put together a big three.
