A syndrome in which a team is so reliant on their superstars (and the rest of the players suck) that they can win regular season games but cannot withstand a playoff series and ultimately win a championship. This was first developed by the Cleveland Cavaliers when LeBron James reportedly gave up on several different occasions, and the team was never able to win a championship.
Dude, did you hear about LeBron taking his talents to South Beach?!

Yeah, and some guy named Chris Bosh did, too! He's apparently really good!

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and some guy named Chris Bosh... this teams gonna be great! But wait a sec, who the hell are all these other people on the team?

Uh oh... looks like Superstar Syndrome...
