"Dream team." "Super team." Whatever you call it, the alignment of multiple big name players on one team is a great thought...usually, on paper and/or in video games. But, when it comes to real life, combining superstars isn't always the answer. In fact, more often than not, it's rarely the best approach because for every widely successful 1927 New York Yankees Murderers' Row lineup, there are teams like the 2003-04 Los Angeles Lakers, who win big in the regular season only to fall short when it matters most, in the playoffs.

Here's A History of Failed Dream Teams.
