I've always been more excited about up-and-coming teams rather than established contenders. An ESPN poll on the subject piqued my interest. So:
Rank each of the NBA's 30 teams based on the overall talent of their players who will start this season younger than 25 years old.
The NBA season begins Oct. 29. A player must still be 24 years old on that date to be considered as part of an overall judgement of a team's under-25 talent base.
Some of you need to check the birthdays of your favorite 24-year-old players, too. Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry, Danilo Gallinari and others all turn 25 before Oct. 29.
There's a poll on ESPN that shows which players on a team are under 25 (http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/post/_/id/9550791/nba-teams-25-talent).

1. Thunder
2. Pelicans
3. Rockets
4. Cavaliers
5. Pistons
6. Wizards
7. Trailblazers
8. Jazz
9. Kings
10. Raptors

I'll have to go with the Bobcats again. Kemba Walker's showing star potential; Bismack Biyombo's becoming a working man's Serge Ibaka; and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is fairly solid at everything. And they all play defense.
In addition, Cody Zeller has a lot of potential, although I think the Bobcats have to choose between him and Biyombo eventually.
Let's hope Michael Jordan stays out of Rich Cho's way.

You're blind right?
