    Milwaukee has a more defined ceiling. None of those dudes imo are stars. All-stars probably, not STARS

    Minny and Orlando intrigue me bc who knows how good Towns, Wiggins, and Levine can be...and for Orlando wow u can say the same about that entire starting 5, and they're all diff positions

    Pelicans.

    Anthony Davis takes the level to MVP form this year. He been working on perfecting his already good defense, better handles, thee ball shot, passing out the double, running fast breaks, post moves, etc. AD WILL BE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD THIS SEASON.

    Tyreke Evans excells and becomes a bowling dynamo in Gentry System of the bench

    Holiday being healthy in a better system and defense coach propels him into top 10 pg

    Gordon recent weight lost and great health with a system that gives him more looks and better defense coaching on a contract year for him pushes him to be "Clipper Gordon"

    Asik in a uptempo system search YouTube for "Asik Houston Rockets 2013 highlights." Dude is a whole different player and is excited to play faster.

    Not to forget healthy and savy role players : Quincy Pondexter, Noris Cole, Dante Cunningham, and Ryno Anderson.


    Pelicans take 4-5 seed and make it to the WCF under AD massive leap this year.

    I think your sleeping on Jabari a little. He definitely has star potential.

    Yea easy to forget him bc of the injury, he could pop

    But their youth with Parkwr and Gianis reminds me of OKC when they had Durant and jeff green playing the same position and they tried to make it work b4 1 had to go

    Not a parallel comparison but u see it

    You forgot Khris Middleton for the Bucks,but honestly i like The Lakers young core of Clarkson,Russell and Randle.

    Drafting Russell was smart because you need a quality PG in todays NBA,Russell and Clarkson are both 6'5'' combo

    guards who can pass AND shoot so they could possibly be one of the best backcourts in the league in a few years.

    Yea I forgot about Middleton. He's nice. Probably the best 3 and D player in the league low key and I like what the Lakers are doing but i don't think they have the same level of young talent as the teams I listed.. maybe Boston. I like Upshaw too. I'll be keeping a close eye on him. Could end up being a huge steal if he can keep his head on straight.

    LA's is decent, not as good as the others but better than Boston.

    Boston's core is TRASH. Thats not a core, they just young. Aint nare one of them nigas good enough to have your GM not draft a player at his position

    Perfect example Avery Bradley. Nigas on here beeen gassin him up he's non-descript af. Not even listed and he young himself

    People sleeping on Utah. They balled the second half of the season. I can see them makin a playoff push this year. Gorbert is going to win multiple DPOY awards before its all said and done.

    @silverfoxx You are a consistent Pelicans fan and I salute you.

    I have to go with the Bucks. Look for G. Monroe to be a real difference maker there. They will be solid. Can J. Parker carry this team? Is he the superstar they need?

    I think Durant and Green could have worked. That trade for Perkins was a miss. Green could have been the perfect PF in a small ball line up next to Ibaka and the third option behind Russ/KD once they ultimately let Harden walk. As far as the comparison to the Bucks tho I don't really see it. Jabari is more like Melo... still can't find a comparison for GA.

    I like the Pels but the pieces don't fit. Can't see them making any real noise until they re shuffle that roster. AD is clearly the best big in the league but I saw something similar with Dwight in Orlando play out. The team won't reach its full potential until the roster is built for a star to thrive at his full potential. Give it some time.

    Crowder and Bradley should of been mentioned for the C's in place of Sully's fat ass and Rozier, not that it matters Bucks take this easy although Minny might have the most upside with Wiggins and Towns

    Twolves have the most potentially electrifying core but the Bucks have a young core built to be tougher to beat down the road and defensively matches up better with elite teams.

    Nonetheless, my Pistons' youngins aren't too shabby...

    Andre Drummond
    Stanley Johnson
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

    is a solid young core with potential, especially for a young team that will have Reggie Jackson (at only age 25) considered one of the vets in the starting line-up.

    Cleveland Cavaliers

    K. Irving - best point guard in the league
    K. Love - best stretch PF and rebounder in the league
    T. Thompson - best offensive rebounder in the league
    I. Shumpert - one of the best perimeter defenders in the league

    All 26 or younger and none of them have hit there prime...name a better core, I'll wait..
