A couple of months ago, I discussed how the NBA is devolving into MLB. Now that we have reached the NBA’s version of the “Final Four”, I thought it would be interesting to breakdown the star power of the team’s playing in the NBA Conference Finals. This data can be used to support or dispute my fear that competitive balance is slipping in the NBA.
Everybody compares the newly formed Miami Heat to the New York Yankees as basketball’s version of a traveling all-star team. Could there possibly be a team left in the playoffs with as much star power as a team with Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh?
