What I was describing would be better than an OK team. I specifically pointed to a situation where they were competing.
Having a superstar doesn't mean you're going to be better than OK. Miami was OK or worse for many years, with one of the best players in the league. So was LA. It's being balanced and complete and being able to dictate play every night that made those teams successful. The Spurs right now do not really have a legitimate superstar, unless you think Duncan still fits that bill. And lookie lookie - the best team in the league.
