Not a chance...

You should change the title too, Would Sacramento Pelicans make the WCF this year?

Good idea. GSW are probably too much for everyone this year.

Anthony and Davis would make a good pairing, but are you kidding me? They don't even have three legitimate stars. It's never certain whether Holiday can handle an entire season, much less Davis.

Nope. Sacramento Pelicans stand no chance.

How about the Houston Jazz?

Hill/Beverly/Mack
Harden/Gordon/Johnson
Hayward/Hood/Ariza
Favors/Anderson/Harrell
Gobert/Capela/Nene

With George Hill, Harden moves back to the SG position. Can this team beat the Warriors?

No...

Harden needs to be the pg, & they need to play small, Gobert can protect the paint; when and if he gets into foul trouble, then you can bring in a more traditional lineup (strong 2nd unit).

Harden
Gordon or Ariza
Hayward
Anderson
Gobert

Not saying there is anything wrong with your starting 5, it's very solid, it's just that too beat the Warriors you have to be able to score in your starting unit; and your bench have to be able to out play GS, since they lost their depth.

Harden does not move from point guard for anyone. Hill would do fine at shooting guard. He's slightly bigger and just as dependable on defense as Bradley is for the Celtics.
I think the Salt Lake Rockets could take the Warriors. You're taking the superb defense of the Jazz and combining it with the scorching offense of the Rockets. They can match the Warriors big or small. Look at what Harden has done with the keys in Houston, then add in all the potential of the Jazz.

I watched last nights Kings/Pels game closely. It's unbelievable how inept these two squads are to be honest. The title. Lmfao. I would be SHOCKED if that team got out of the 2nd round.

I'm not saying we are world beaters but you can't watch a single game for either team and call them "inept". Would you have said we were a championship team if you watched us beat the Warriors and the Cavs a a few games ago?

Also you are missing Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple, and Kosta Koufas from our squad, all solid players this year.... and Rudy Gay unless you don't count him due to injury.

Good God, I can't believe how bad those teams are. I was thinking of course they would win it with Davis and Cousins but honestly that's hardly even a playoff team.

Between Jrue Davis and Cousins they are certainally at least a middling playoff team maybe even a good one assuming good health.

Yeah they'd be the 8th seed this year but with the amount of time Holiday and Davis miss I'm not sure they could get the 7 seed. In a normal year they could miss the playoffs depending on health imo.

I did watch them beat the Cavs and Warriors, and watch the Kings often (sadly, because they are honestly very tough to watch) as they are the "home team" where I currently live. Talent wise sure, these teams combined would have a legit squad (at the top), but they would still be undisciplined and still make far too many mental mistakes to compete with the Warriors/Cavs/Spurs in a series.

I don't think they make the playoffs
