Re: What are the top contenders championship windows?
The Heat have until LeBron leaves, so basically 2014.
The Thunder have until Durant declines, or leaves, the Knicks have a couple of years. Memphis i'm not too sure about, but their big players are all up in the same season, so i'd suggest that is their window lol.
The Spurs really don't have much longer imo. I can't believe Duncan has been such a monster this season.
Basing these above teams as contenders given their record so far...
The Heat, Thunder and Spurs are the only contenders in my opinion. All of those other teams have an outside shot. I envision the Thunder sweeping the West. Durant and Westbrook will be way too motivated to not reach the Finals. The Grizzlies and Clippers are close but will ultimately fail and the Knicks and Warriors are way to inexperienced. Jason Kidd is the only impact player on the Knicks that knows what Finals feel like.
