With the Miami Heat's recent dip in form (dropping five of their last six games), NBA fans have once again begun to doubt the capacity of this Super Team to ever win a title.
When LeBron James made his now infamous decision to join his Team USA buddies Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach, an NBA title seemed all but assured. Of course, as we have seen, we were a little premature in anointing the Heat the NBA's newest dynasty.
This wasn't the first time a newly formed Super Team has been expected to bring home a title and has failed to meet those expectations. Since the early years of the NBA, the addition of new players or the maturation of existing players has raised the hopes of fans—hopes that this year will be the one and this team will be unstoppable, only to see the team crumble and its fans' hopes dashed.
The Heat are surely the most recent Super Team to disappoint, but are they the most disappointing Super Team of all time?
Note: I have not counted teams which went on to win NBA titles in subsequent seasons with a roster composed largely of the same players.
