NBA Fans Debate About Which Superteam Broke The League: “The Heat. That Was The Only Real Super Team.”

Being part of a superteam in the NBA is a double-edged sword for players. While it gives them an advantage and higher odds of winning an NBA Championship over their competitors, it usually doesn't sit well with fans. Even the most beloved players such as LeBron James and Kevin Durant had to embrace the roles of villains when they formed their respective superteams.

Talking about the topic of superteams in the NBA, one might wonder, which NBA superteam truly broke the league? There have been amazing rosters that have been formed in recent history. But answering this question could be a tough nut to crack for anyone.

For some, it might be the Big 3 of the Miami Heat featuring LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. On the other hand, many will say that the superteam of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green deserves that spot.

Well, renowned Twitter account "ClutchPoints," asked this question from their fans to potentially settle this debate. The four superteams in question were the Boston Celtics - Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen; the Miami Heat - LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh; the Cleveland Cavaliers - LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love; the Golden State Warriors - Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.

You might have already guessed that the comments section below this tweet became a war zone, with many fans having a plethora of opinions. Here are some of the best tweets by NBA fans for you to check out:

The most common answer was undoubtedly the Warriors' superteam, followed by the Miami Heat Big 3. There is hardly anyone who would argue with this result.

As pointed out by one of the fans, apart from the Warriors team, the other 3 were defeated at one point or another without injuries playing a major role. In the case of the Dubs, though, if it weren't for injuries to KD and Klay, they might have three-peated. 

Moreover, the dominance that the Warriors had during that time was simply unmatched. It is hard to see any other super-team utterly breaking the league.
