LAS VEGAS (AP) — When Patrick Ewing played, he saw the league as having one superstar per team.

He sees it heading back that way now.

LeBron James' decision to leave Miami for Cleveland surely shifted the NBA power structure. And while there's obviously a team loaded with future Hall of Famers in San Antonio, plus plenty of teams with two players worthy of at least superstar argument, there's nothing that mirrors what the Heat had when James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were teammates.

James' latest decision also gives Cleveland a better chance to win a title.

But like Ewing knows, since he never won a championship, a more-balanced playing field across the NBA means many other teams figure to have a better chance as well.
