Im not talking about Real contenders like The Celtics,Lakers,Heat,Mavs etc.Most of their players are in their prime and are ready to win now.
What im talking about is a roster full of youth and developing i.e

Minnesota Twolves - So much potential-Love,Beasley,Flynn,Milicic,Wes Johnson and of course Ricky Rubio when he comes.I love how this franchise is building for the future plus they have a lot of Cap space.

Sacremento Kings - .They have ROY Tyreke Evans and Demarcus Cousins as well as some good young talent.Do they have what it takes to be contenders in 3-4 years?

Chicago Bulls - D Rode,Noah,Gibson,JJ, aswell as a solid experienced bunch in Boozer,Brewer etc.The key to this team is building proven players around potential.They seem to work well in the draft and having an off year with the Fa craze,will they continue to build around the draft?

Nets - This squad and Franchise has a lot of potential.Brook Lopez,Harris and Favors provide a great foundation to build upon not to mention a move to a Brooklyn in the works to attract the big name players in the future.

So what do you think?

I say Clippers even tho I am a Warriors Fan....Blake Griffin + Baron Davis + Eric Gordan with Aminu looks like a very dangerous team

Did you really not list the Thunder? The Thunder, by a mile. I'd have to double check but I think they're the youngest team in the NBA, and they may be contenders this year as is.

Thunder are the best, but I assume he means non-playoff teams.

Wait, Bulls are up there never mind.

they are already a top 5 west team. not exactly playing below their potential.
i think its the clippers. if they have health they have a great and balanced starting 5 full of athletes. they dont lack an inside prescence and jordan is a freak of an athlete.

Out of the choices, it's easily the Bulls. Don't confuse potential with number of young players.

Sorry should have included the Thunder i guess.
What i meant by potential is a squad that is not great now,but in the future will be great due to their roster of young talent.
I think everyone knows that the Thunder have the most potential,considered their prob a top 3 West team this year.The Bulls only finished just in the playoffs,i maybe shouldnt have listed them.
What i meant by Team Potential isnt just one or two good young players.Its the roster in general.The Timberwolves have some class youth coming through.
And to the guy who said the Kncicks is 4th or 5th definitely,i only listed 4 so sorry about that.
The Knicks have a lot of potential but are they patient enough to wait for it?

the kings easily.
casspi, cousins, greene, landry and whiteside. there going to be really dangerous in 2-3 years.

As a Laker fan... definitely the Kings.... Evans is a stud... Cousins is going to be a monster... I think whiteside will make good contributions... also have jason thompson whose very young and has potential, landrys a beast... give them time they'll be good.

I used to say my Blazers but I think the team with the most potential right now is the Thunder... Such a young team with tremendous potential...

Wizards. Probably a bottom three team this season. John Wall, Andray Blatche, Javale McGee, Trevor Booker, Hamady Ndiaye, Kevin Seraphin. All 24 or under. Nick Young is 25. Arenas and Hinrich are the old farts at 28 and 29.

how can you put Chicago in there? they got an all-star in Boozer and signed two really good role players... while the rest of the teams compared are not even playoff teams....

THUNDER!!! and Kings.

07-19-2010, 09:58 AM
The bulls are a playoff team. why would you put them on there. Id give the kings 1 more year and Minnesota has no potential and Nj has potential but not like GS. i would give nj over 30 wins this yr

Basically i didnt include the Thunder because everyone agrees their potential is a near definite NBA title at some stage.The Bulls however are not in this case.
Golden State obviously are another team.
Also The Knicks have some potential but im just not sure they are patient enough to wait for it
I should have put the Thunder up there or stated why they werent up there.But it wouldnt have been much of a poll if I did put them up.I dont know how to change it anyway so it doesnt matter lol.
Thanks for answering anyway.
