Watching Shaq speak, he still treats them as a second year team. They have been playing with the same roster for like 3-4 years. Do you think it's champ or bust this year?

Well they are a young team, and when is the last time a young team won it all? They probably have the best chance, but just going off the last decade or so, young teams just don't seem to get it done.

Being young can help you athleticism-wise, it speeds up your offense, and sometimes helps with chemistry, but it's really hard to win a championship when you lack solid veterans.

I agree with the veteran presence but they have the perfect team to win. I blame Brooks and KD. They need to get RWB to change or they'll never win.

Yeah Westbrook is a cancer to this team quite honestly. Never looking to pass unless he sees someone wide open. He has terrible awareness offensively and bad court vision. Trade for Rondo.

Being young is more an advantage as compared to an excuse

Nah, I wouldn't trade RWB for Rondo at this point. Tbh, I'd take Jrue Holiday and Spencer Hawes for RWB. Perkins is slow and looks like he's going straight to KFC after the game.

At this point they are a young experienced team. The core has 3 straight playoff experiences so I don't think the age matters anymore.

There best advantage at being young is they have such a big window to try and get it done.

Westbrook>Rondo
Btw Being Selfishly Unselfish is worse than being selfish and no Westbrook isn't selfish just inconsistent
Rondo is 100% selfishly unselfish farms those assist numbers all day.

After watching tonights game the problem on that team is Westbrook. As long as he's point guard they won't win a championship.

the only excuse they can use this season if they dont win the championship is. LEBRON JAMES EXIST.

An excuse? No... a reason? Yes. Wade and LBJ had both been the finals twice before when they met Durant in the finals. Durant had never been there, nor had anybody on the roster save Perkins.

But the bottom line is that they Thunder simply didn't have the depth either. The coaching staff there is young too... as are the players, but now they have that experience. There are not excuses. If they lose, they will simply lose to a better team.

Man, that's full of excuses...

Spoelstra is a young coach.
Miami has no depth either.. Mike Miller is their 4th highest paid player and he rarely plays.

LeBron James just makes Miami Heat that good. No more excuses, they have Ibaka, WB, KD, and Martin. Those are very great players on one team. Wizards would be lucky to even have Martin..

Not at all, anything less then a championship is a disappointment from now to the foreseeable future.
