Cavs

Kyrie plus guys like Waiters and Thompson with another top pick on their way. And they'll have cap space

neither wins in the next 7 years.. i would vote toronto just to be a homer but its unrealistic for any of them. IF i had to pick one Id say Detroit, Dont know exactly why

Im going to go with Bobcats

Pistons- have really nothing going on
Raptors- Nobody wants to play in Canada, plus they are looking to be 8th seed from now on no top picks
Cavs- nobody wanted to play in Cleveland with Lebron
Bobcats- will keep being bad and get top picks they have Kidd-Gil, Kemba,and more to come
Wizards- to bad of a franchise
Magic- im not even getting into that team

Lets see what happens after another off season.Kyrie is obviously huge for the Cavs.Pistons have Drummond and Monroe along with another lottery pick to go along with 30 mil in cap space.Wizards just can't seem to win no matter who they get out there.Raptors team is pretty much set in stone until some guys come off the books.Magic are kinda trailing everyone in young talent but that will change and we will have to see what happens there.Bobcats I just don't trust that organization to be able to win a title.Im obviously going with the Pistons though.

I don't see any of them, as of right now Raptors are the most playoff ready, Wizards if they got it together could be good...Cavs have potential but aren't extremely great to me its Irving, some role players and crap...they need more. I went with Raptors with all that being said because they are in win now mood where as the other teams are either in a idk what the hell i'm doing mood or rebuilding.

Pistons and Cavs easily right now. Depending on who Orlando can get in the draft though, they can quickly rebuild. Vucevic and Harkless are solid young guys, a top 5 pick next year will get them rolling in the right direction

Thing is, guarantee you at least one of those teams wins a tittle before the GOAT Nets.

Cavs. Kyrie is a superstar in the making.

Raps08-09 Champ

Should've made it public.

But Cavs.

Kyrie will be a top 10 player in 2 year IMO and Thompson will be a solid starting PF. Not to mention Lebron is coming back.

Hornets?!?!?

02-10-2013, 05:26 AM
Realistically none as long as OKC and MIA are here but if I had to rank it...

Detroit because they have been proven to build championships.
Toronto - because Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment will spend whatever it takes to build a contender.
Cleveland - aside from Kryie and maybe Tristan they suck.
Magic - dont' know where to start with them
Bobcats - if they can keep building in the draft but still there far off

Easy Cleveland. I like Drummond a lot too, but Kyrie, Thompson, Andy V, picks, cap-room, and an outside shot at LeBron - they're in the best position of all those teams.

I would say Detroit. Monroe and Drummond seem to be a great pairing. If Monroe shows he can hit a 15 footer with consistency then they will be completely dominant. If they are able to keep Calderon around, that will help a ton with those 2 young bigs development as well. They really seem to be a 18 pod sf with solid defense away from being contenders in about 2 years when Drummond comes into his own

JWO35
02-10-2013, 10:25 AM
I would say the Toronto Raptors...

Based on this year. He's performing great this year, but that doesn't mean he's automatically better than someone who just might be having a down year this year.

Wade hasn't been a top 10 player this year but overall, he's still probably a top 10 player.

I'm referring to this year. Heck you even think he'll improve, so what's the beef?

To predict who has the best chance of winning a title in the next seven years is utterly impossible. And it is quite foolish to boldly proclaim that 'none,' of them will due simply to the fact that they are all bad teams. The Pistons won 32 games in 2001 and missed the playoffs. Three years later, they were champions.

I do believe that of all these teams, that the Pistons are in an advantageous position. They have a very promising power forward and center in Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. Both of which, I believe, have the potential to be All-Stars. And having a dominant front court goes a long way in determining team success. Then you consider the solid starters like Brandon Knight and Kyle Singler, adding a potential lottery pick this year, and the fact that they will have between 25 and 30 million dollars in cap space this year to add another big impact player or two, I think they'll be drastically better in the next two years.

Odds are none of them win anything, and it's hard to predict the future at all and be sure of your self about it. Too much player turnover these days.

Detroit, Washington and Cleveland have really nice young pieces already. Toronto has some nice pieces, but they won't have money to play around with nor do they even have their draft pick this season. It's gonna be impossible for them to get to true contender status IMO. Charlotte has a few nice pieces too, but that organization just seems to be screwed.

I like Harkless, Vucevic and Nicholson for the Magic, and they should have a great pick this year and potentially again next year. I think it will be the 2014 offseason when they spend their money, and they should have a nice amount of it to spend. Their future will be determined mainly by what is awaiting them. So they're an unknown. I do think they've started the rebuild well.

Cavs, Raptors, or Pistons have the best chance.

Cavs have Kyrie, Waiters, Thompson, and maybe Andy V (depending on if they trade him) and a **** ton of draft picks.

Raptors have Lowry, Gay, Jonas, and DeRozan, depleted draft picks

Pistons have Knight, Singler, Drummond, and Monroe, pending first round pick traded to Bobcats.

So it just depends on how these players mesh and develop and drafting process.

The Cavaliers because of Irving and Myers Leonard. Yes I am from the future.
