In general, it takes more than one great player to win an NBA title.
It's easy to name the best players on most teams. You see them front and center in highlights and they're always a focus when discussing their team.
Some of them have a teammate who nearly matches their own prodigious talent; some do not. Most NBA fans will know the names on this slideshow, while some will claim the No. 2 is actually a No. 1; others will no doubt take issue with the numerical ranking.
