"It's like a mid-range shot to me."
Some old school NBA fans lament how NBA stars are now so buddy-buddy, but I happen to like the way that the established stars have taken a shine to the new kid, #1 draft pick Anthony Davis. I think they realize that if guys like Davis reach their potential, that's good for everyone: for the future of the league, competition, and their own personal bank accounts.
Wages of Wins' Dave Berri takes a look at the advanced metrics behind both the 1992 Dream Team and the current iteration. There are no guarantees.
