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.
I see it differently. Chicago is like Dallas, one elite player surrounded by a great supporting cast. To win the NBA title, you need defense, chemistry and elite talent. Miami is going to win, the big 3 is greater than the big D. Yes Bosh is part of the big 3, 23 points against the best D in the NBA while shooting 60% percent in the conference finals.
