Sort of, they all made way more good moves than bad ones. Whether through the draft, trades, signings, they all took their resources at hand and made championship teams.
However it's difficult to find too many championship teams that did not have at least two or three really good drafts in the years prior leading up to their cup year(s) Not too many of them spent their cap money on players who ended up not performing to at least an adequate level. Not too many won by renting or signing UFAs as their top end players.
