When LeBron James joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat, the trio were harshly criticized as not being good enough to win a title by themselves.
However, this is a silly claim, seeing as though no one has won alone in recent NBA history.
The Los Angeles Lakers have Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol (as well as Lamar Odom), and before that they had Kobe and Shaquille O'Neal.
The Boston Celtics have their big three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, along with Rajon Rondo.
The San Antonio Spurs have their trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
The Heat had Wade and Shaq during their last title win.
The Detroit Pistons had a balanced combination of Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Rasheed Wallace and Ben Wallace.
And, despite what some may claim, the Chicago Bulls had more than just Michael Jordan.
They also had Hall of Famer and seven-time All-Star Scottie Pippen, who led the Bulls to a 55-win season without Jordan and has somehow become one of the most underrated players in NBA history.
Therefore, it seems that LeBron, like Jordan, has been able to be perform as the best player in the league, despite playing alongside other stars.
