Karl lost that series for his team when he refused to put Payton on Jordan until they were down 0-3.

If he does that from Game 1 the Sonics win the title that season.

How many 'superstars' never won a championship. Miller, Stockton, Malone, Barkley, LBJ, Ewing, Richmond, Payton, Nash, Iverson...the list goes on and on and on.
Did you read my post?

I'm not saying you know from the minute a guy is drafted he's a superstar. I am saying no one on our roster has a chance but JoVal.

I specifically said that if you look at all those guys that won championships, they were studs before they won.

I specifically said that having a star doesn't ensure a championship. I said not having one ensures not winning a title. Many things still have to go right, even after you have the talent. But the common denominator is that talent.

Get a superstar/hall of famer.
Develop a superstar/hall of famer
Develop a great team

They come hand in hand.
