The idea of being "successful" is a relative concept, regardless of the situation. It's hard to really put a barometer on what it takes for someone or something to be considered a success, certainly not without clearly defined benchmarks and expectations.
Yet in the world of sports, success is one of the most commonly argued notions. Teams and players are either successful or they're not, but how we come to that conclusion varies depending on the evaluator.
In looking ahead to North Carolina's 2014-15 season, we're taking the abstract of success and using it to define the potential performance of each of the Tar Heels' projected starters. Though Carolina's starting lineup won't be set in stone for several months and very well could change throughout the season, we're basing this on the current makeup of the roster and the type of team head coach Roy Williams is most likely put on the court in November and beyond.
