This year's Mavericks team closely resembles that Detroit Pistons team.
The NBA is still a star-driven League, but you also need balance throughout the lineup to win. Chicago couldn't win because of its lack of depth.
For the Raptors
to be successful, they will likely have to follow a similar blueprint, as this club hasn't been able to lure in the top FAs and haven't had success in the draft in terms of selecting a franchise player. Until any of these two things happen, the Raptors
will have to focus on building a well-balanced club.
