I personally believe that a superstar is REALLY marketable, while an all-star isn't..

What about you guys?

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

I think that's true as well. I also believe that a superstar is amongst the elite of the league while an All-Star is still an above average player but not amongst the elite. Of course, sometimes a superstar may not always be an All-Star, just like how an All-Star may not always be a superstar.

Success in the playoffs , i look at Mcgrady and Carmelo as all stars but not superstars because they haven't gotten there team out of the first round.

Consistent production at a high level separates a superstar from an all star. Not to mention the clutch factor and hype.

In today's terms - charisma.

Negative or positive if a player has a knack for making headlines they tend to become a superstar in the NBA (or any other league for that matter), despite winning.

I don't agree with it, but right now that seems like what it takes to make the jump.

For my money, its drive, the refusal to lose and doing anything to insure your team's success that separate the greats from the also-rans.
