View Full Version : Will we witness a historic(ish) offense or defense this season?

By historical I mean at least Top-10 or so. Its been awhile since we've witnessed a team like Nash's Suns or KG's Celtics, take the league by storm and utterly dominate on one side of the court. Last year Miami set a record for highest eFG% in NBA History IIRC, but I dont think that alone qualified for elite status.

The Clips and Bulls seem to be the favorites for offensive/defensive efficiency, but do they have the talent to crack the top of the list? The Bulls have the coach, a super athletic backcourt with Hinrich backing them, and the Deng-Taj-Noah trio that has always killed it. Whats stopping them from defending at a level of the prior Celtics, Spurs, Pistons.... What about the Clips, can you see them exceeding the Suns?

Warriors on Offense and Bulls on Defense . Bulls have a top 10 player on defense for their position almost in their starting line up if you take out Boozer and replace him with Taj .

I think Golden State has the players to be one of the most electrifying offenses ever. And what's scarier is their D isn't bad either. Clips & T-wolves could be pretty dangerous on offense too.

Bulls and Pacers are pretty scary on D

I think GS is the only team with any real "historic" possibilities this year though

I think he is talking about the other side of the ball and us hitting 3's

Pacers and Bulls on D. Clippers, Warriors or Rockets on O. Pretty much the only teams I give a chance for a positive, historic mark.

i'd lean no. noone really stands out in terms of top ten all time offensively or defensively this season.

if i had to pick one? Indy or Chicago might put up a respectable all time defensive rank.

Sixers could be historically bad on both ends

Lakers + Giants

hellcrooner is right. We're gonna be soooooo bad defensively.

Wiggins baby!

Bulls' defense for sure if Noah can play 70+ games

I'd throw the Pacers in the mix of potential defense teams. Them and the Bulls of course. On offense,witnessing the 3 point shot's trend of last years,I'm waiting to see a team do that in a excellent way.
