Right. And how many of them have won a championship?

Also, of those who didn't start with a core of top players who were acquired via top-10 picks, how many have stayed consistently good for eight to ten years? Because that's also what we're talking about here.

I think your list will be short indeed.

In any case, no one has claimed that there's no other way to build a championship team. Having top players acquired by selecting high has proven the most consistent way of doing it. The history is really quite clear on that.
