Here’s the evidence I’ve yet to see from any of the people who argue in favour of “blowing it up”: which team has ever successfully done that? Show me the franchise that was a solid winner but not true contender that gave up on that while winning was still on the table (as opposed to when its stars were starting to age) that successfully spun that into a champion?

The examples of teams who refused to blow it up and managed to win exist in the 2011 Mavs and 2014 Spurs, but I’m not sure the other does… unless we count the Heat post Shaq? (Although that, again, was more of a case of vets aging out).
