This photo represents the desire of an NBA player to win a championship...
In 2008, superstars Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen joined each other on the Boston Celtics. During those years, they reached the playoffs consecutively and the finals twice.
On the same year in 2008, the Boston Celtics won the championship, dominating the east coast division. This may have spurred a tradition of superstars joining each other in order to win a championship today.
Many superstars who join each other to create a "superteam" become very successful in the post season (play-offs or tournament).
Back in 2010, Lebron James joined superstars Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh to chase a championship. From 2010 to 2014, they reached the Finals four consecutive times and almost broke an all-time winning streak record with 27 games.
