Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.
Personally I didn't think they were a real contender but after watching them a few times this year I have been thoroughly impressed.
Still don't know if they have the team that can beat the Spurs, Lakers or Thunder 4 out of 7 times though.
We shall see
yep. they are for real. the west is wide open for 5 teams imo.
sexy deep team.
Scary thing is their starting SG (Billups) is still out as well as their 3rd or 4th bench player Grant Hill.
They have a very deep team. They will be scary, but even then I don't think they are as good as San Antonio or Memphis. And OKC should be better than them also.
Any team that features Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and J Crawford has to be good. They are a very scary team capable of beating any NBA team on any given night as we witnessed yesterday against the Heat.
Maybe you should have added a poll to this thread.
Billups return will be huge intangible wise, he is the glue guy on the court. He knows how to settle the team down in tense moments. He may not be the same Billups but as long as he can help get to the line and hit 3's as before they will be even deadlier. Willie Green will be riding the pine soon. Billups experience on the court will pay dividends this year in the playoffs.
Hill will also help and give another playmaker, decent defender, and shooter.
Hell yes they are a contender right now. Atm I give them a better chance than the Lakers.

#Patriots are 9-2 and their second highest paid player this season is Aaron Hernandez. Let that sink in.
Best team in the NBA right now. 6-0 vs the NBA's contenders and now have 2nd best record in the league.
They are having a great season and there is not enough talk about them, they go into games and take care of business, i hate the team but damn they look good.
