By definition, every NBA superstar excels in multiple areas on the basketball court.
Each can score effectively, relative to the position they play. They all also impact the game in areas that extend well beyond scoring.
But there is one skill that drives this superstar production from every player.
For some, it's speed. For some, it's power. For others, it's something different entirely.
In identifying one skill that defines every NBA superstar's game, though, I should note that I decided who to include in this group of "superstars" by simply selecting each of the All-NBA First and Second Team players from last year.
Sure, by season's end, that group might be different, but that's what I went with.
The only change I made was substituting Carmelo Anthony for Andrew Bynum.
