To the West, Phoenix, yet badly embarked in the third quarter, took the hand against Denver by spilling the nuggets (122-105) at home in the match 1. and say that James Harden was not the.
Colin Cowherd is here to explain why super teams rarely work. Thefell to the in seven games on Saturday and Cowherd knows why. He took to the air Monday and explained that super teams can't be deep due to the amount of salary required to lock in top stars. That leaves a thin bench, which came back to bite the Nets.
Here's what he had to say:

How the Nets were built: Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving transformed Brooklyn roster in two years
The Nets have come a long way in two years. Their transformation to NBA title contender began during the 2019 offseason and culminated with this year's James Harden and Blake Griffin acquisitions.While Brooklyn was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the 76ers, it was clear that they were an ascending team. And in time, their young talent could make them a future contender in the East.— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd)
This is a fair -- and fairly obvious -- argument. The issue with it is that few topteams have great benches anyway. Sure there might be an impact player or two coming off the bench for playoff teams, but no one really has a ton of depth.

Theand have some depth, but it's not like either team has a wave of effective guys coming off the bench to impact every game. Terance Mann and have been big for the Clippers in the postseason in spots, as has Cameron Payne for the Suns. But the Nets had Jeff Green and Bruce Brown each providing help as well.
In general, Cowherd is right. The issue with super teams is the rest of the roster. Teams are typically relying on older vets taking discounts to play big roles. But themanaged to make that work in 2020.
Building a super team is a delicate operation and it must be done with depth in mind.
