Assuming full health I'm gonna be what I believe is contrarian and take #2 here.

Honestly it's gonna be 1-3... not sure what #4 and #5 could do against those teams.

The top 3 teams are ridiculous and probably agree with the order they're in although they're close definitely all 3 would be the next strong favorite against any other team then Golden State who has probably still the most star power but teams front court matchups or having Lebron make it interesting. Team 1 is good throughout and have 2 top 5 players so they have a good chance. Davis, Durant, and Wall would be a dope trio but it doesn't have as much star power as team 3 or Golden State and I don't like the supporting cast as much either. Team 3 is who I'd hope for and think could be the favorites but tough to say since it depends alot on Cousins fit on team and then performance but going out on a limb Cousins makes the playoffs.

I wouldn't bet against GS with any of those teams but each are probably fighting for 1st and I'd order it team 3 then 1 then 2 those other 2 teams while maybe good enough to fight for the 2 seed would be cinderellas against GS and expect lose to Cleveland and Spurs as well

Let me break it down.

Cousins and Curry alienate Kawhi who can't relate.

Wall tries to steal Davis' wallet and Durant sensing the tension bolts for LA.

Clipper have LeBron who is the modern GOAT.

Team 1 wins, sweep.

Team 1 without a doubt. Followed by team 3.

To me it has to be team 1 2 or 3.....CP3 Lebron and Melo just don't fit well in my opinion..just a bunch of ball dominate players thrown together......Team 2 is interesting but I don't like the complimentary pieces to their big 3 so that leaves team 3 who I think both melds and has good roles

I think you lost the privilege to say that because you didn't even send in rankings.

I think team 2 has the best chemistry. Team 3 is penalized for having Cousins.

Remember when Zach Randolph was considered a cancer until he joined a team with other talented players, and turned out to be very solid in a team setting? I'd say cousins is very much like that just more talented.

Same can go for other players, notably JR Smith, Jamal Crawford, etc
