View Full Version : Which non-playoff team has the most potential???

The above are the bottom 4 teams of each Conference for the 10-11 regular season. Which one do you think has the most potential to become a consistent playoff team within 2-3 years?? Feel free to explain why.

I'd have to say warriors.if monta Ellis stays and they get a couple of role players,they can be a pretty good team.lee curry and Ellis can be a big 3

Obviously the Clippers

I think the Clippers could be very good if they could move guys like Kaman & Mo Williams. Bledsoe, Gordon, Aminu, Griffin & Jordan is a very nice young core to have. Hopefully it's not wasted by terrible ownership & bad coaching.

No brainer for me; Clippers. With Kaman and Griffin in the post, the Clippers have the rebounding and interior defence AND offence they need. PG is an important position, but as we have seen with the Bulls, Lakers, Rockets and 99 Spurs (just speaking to the last twenty years or so), a "great point guard" isnt needed when you have other tools needed to win. Filling out the front court is the hardest thing to do in the NBA right now. The PG position is deeper than it has ever been and is therefore some what easier to fill than it was 20 years ago, and the league is also deep a SF. And the Clippers have some pieces in place already and a decent PG.

Kaman and Griffen are going to scare the $#!T out of any team that has to play them and will give people nightmares.

clippers, bc of what they have now, and the ownership and management is showing committment to winning finally...wait and see

i like NJ on this. possibility of signing Deron + an aggressive owner.

05-07-2011, 09:45 AM
The L.A. Clippers

I didn't vote coz I can't decide whether to vote on the Clippers or the Nets... The Clippers have a young core while the Nets have a very rich owner who is not afraid to spend and if they could resign D-Will, their future looks promising...

i'm going nets...only team on that list with a proven superstar...i have clippers 2nd...deciding factor for me is....prokhorov > sterling

I think it's the Clippers for sure. They better retain DeAndre Jordan.

Raptors all day every day. it's all about dat 416. RAPS 4 LYFE!!!

I think the Clips have a better chance of keeping their talent than NJ does, even if they have an aggressive owner. They have to sign their talent either this offseason or next, and they have some big fish that will be free agents 2012

the milwaukee bucks look at last year

Derozan's a stud.
Ed Davis a stud.
cap space
high draft pick

Clippers just need to trade for a solid wing player with all their bad contracts/young talent

05-07-2011, 02:22 PM
I'm saying the clippers. I think brook lopez is over rated. However, if NJ can bring in some good free agent talent or make a trade they could be dangerous. Maybe the clippers get lucky in this bad draft and pick up irving.

Wizards. They have a future all star Pg in Wall. They have a good center in Mcgee. Nick Young/Andre Blatche can either start or be strong 6th men I believe. And they have something that the Clippers lack, a high pick (potential lottery) as well.

Clippers, Wizards & Nets
