The North Carolina Tar Heels will enter the 2011-12 basketball season loaded with talent as they seek to add another title to their already storied history. With their entire starting line-up from last season's Elite Eight team returning to Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels should easily be the favorites to win it all in 2012.

With four potential NBA first-round picks in the starting line-up, and at least one more coming off the bench, North Carolina should have no problem entertaining its fans as it seeks to make yet another run towards the Final Four, the championship trophy and a visit to the White House.

Back in 2004 and 2008, the Tar Heels were in a similar situation as they are going into this upcoming season. Their rosters were full of stars seeking championship rings, and both of those teams accomplished that goal.

We could only hope that the 2011-12 North Carolina Tar Heels will do the exact same thing. 

This slideshow takes an in-depth look at how the 2011-2012 Tar Heels compare to the championship teams from 2005 and 2009.

Enjoy!
