Example i think would be mem

just look @ line up

conley : young and improving (12 ppg and 5 st)
mayo : young and can be allstar (top10-15 sg)
gay : young and can be allstar (top 10 sf)
zach : walking double double can be allstar (top 10 pf)
March : young and improving ( top 10-15 center) (15 ppg - 9 rpg)

bench is kinda bad but looking @ team should have been playoffs team last year :facepalm:

who else can you think of?

The Sixers had a lot of talent last year... But leave it to Eddie Jordan to ruin a young team.

Wizards from last year. A lot of people had them as high as 4th seed in the East before the start of last season, right after they acquired Foye and Miller.

PG: Gilbert Arenas/Foye
SG: Stevenson/Foye
SF: Butler/Miller
PF: Jamison/Blatche
C: Haywood/McGee

Memphis and Detroit. The Pistons had Rodney Stuckey, Ben Gordon, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Charlie Villenueva, and Will Bynum and only won 27 games. I know they were injured a lot but they should have won more. Memphis, although close to .500, should have been better. Their starting 5 is young and extremely talented and I am willing to bet they make the playoffs this year. I wrote a thread to Memphis fans saying that their team will make the playoffs last year. Obviously I was wrong..

Warriors. With the amount of talent on that roster, there's no reason they shouldn't be in the playoff race every year

Not anymore.

Use to be a huge 3-point threat; but now they're all gone. Only threat now is Curry; still undecided on Charlie Bell, D. Wright or Williams.

I'm going to go a little older
How about the two Rockets trios. Drexler, Barkley and Hakeem and Pippen, Barkley and Hakeem?
Or even older. Goodrich, West, and Baylor for the 1967-1968 Lakers.
Or Baylor, West, and Wilt for LA from 1968-1971, before Baylor retired and LA finally won in 1972.

Or the 80s Pistons before they finally got rid of Adrian Dantley for fricking Mark Aguirre just so they could get more playing time Dennis Rodman. And of course would go on to win 2 titles.

They didn't have that dominant big man to fit in with that crew. Every team needs a dominant big man to go along with the rest of the squad to win a title. Shaq in LA, Shaq in Miami, Gasol, Tim Duncan, and that's only the past few years 10 years. That's why Lebron couldn't win the championship in Cleveland. He had no Duncan/Gasol/Dominant Shaq.

They weren't talented enough. Far too often, Ewing had to do too much work for that team.

Clippers:
-Baron (more like the Baroness lately but star talent)
-Gordon (shooter from a hyped class)
-Amin...u? (Okay, this part looked better last year w/ Thornton, but still)
-Blake Griffin (#1 overall pick by a mile)
-Kaman (a legit 2-way center - who knew one existed?!)

Same with that Nuggets team a couple years back right? Didn't they set the record for best record to not make the playoffs?

You could make a legitimate argument that:

PG: Kidd
SG: Butler
SF: Marion
PF: Dirk
C: Haywood

is the best starting lineup in basketball. All the failures in the playoffs sting like a *****.

Grizzlies were SOLID from the ground up! Every position besides PG is played by an "ABOVE AVERAGE" player....including allstar Zach Randolph and allstar caliber Rudy Gay.

Well I see people go a little older so I'll say the 90's Jazz take the cake...

problem with grizz is they have 4 players that can be fringe allstar careers and all them 4 can average 25 per game being used as first options or 20 per game used as second options.

But hyou play wiht just ONE ball.

they shoudl have chosen 2 of them to build aounrd ( preferably Mauo and Marc) and trade the others for future picks, good DEfensive minded starters and bench depth.
