In the late eighties and Early nineties Jerry Krause built one of the best and most recognizable teams in the league, the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls under the management of Krause (though criticized) and coaching of Phil Jackson won 6 NBA championships in the '90s. The formula for these championship was devised in the early days with the acquisition of Michael Jordan, it was simple build a team of complimentary players to aid Michael.

What I'm getting at by stating this is: Are there any stars in the league now that with the right supporting cast could be of Michael Jordan calliber and legendary status? Jordan really wasn't a star until he was paired with the championship teams, and though a consistent player, was never allowed to play to his full potential at North Carolina. I was thinking along the lines if a Paul Pierce possibly.
