Default Which team has the most upside right now?

It's looking like rosters are pretty much set for the most part. Which team do you see with the most upside?

I think it's the Warriors because of Iguodala.

Last season, one of, if not the best Warrior lineup consisted of Curry Jack and Thompson on the perimeter.

http://www.82games.com/1213/1213GSW2.HTM

Out of their most played lineups, it had the highest win% and definitely the best +/-.

The lineup was good because it had Curry playing more off the ball which opened up the floor for the rest of the team. With the addition of Iggy and his playmaking abilities, the Warriors are going to be able to do the same thing except not be mismatched at the SG position.

Not when all your players are so old. It's all downhill for them...

Clippers. Imagine if Griffin finally becomes a defensive beast(which he can because of his athleticicism), gets some post moves and improves to at least 66-69 freethrow shooting. Then Deandre Jordan becomes a great rim protector and is able to score down low... Combined with the 3-point shooting they just got, they would be amazing.

Still not beating Miami with a healthy Wade though..

cavs has a lot of upside if all their dudes stay healthy and rookies pan out.

Bynum -- all star best C in the league when healthy
Varejao - Averaged 14pts /14 reb last season before going down
Irving - top 5 pg when healthy and motivated
Zeller- looks good in USA camp
bennett -no.1 overall pick , if he can become an 3, watch out.
waiters- streaky

I definitely agree. A healthy Bynum is going to make them a playoff team. A potentially very dangerous playoff team.

Thunder.

Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka haven't reached their primes yet.

Jackson has potential. Lamb could have a very good upside. Adams is raw, but definitely has potential.

If those young guys develop while the other three are hitting their peak, watch the fvck out. Maybe only Cleveland has the same long term upside.

War that Spurs model!

East/ Cleveland - Multiple scorers, deep frontcourt, and could fight for 5th seed if Bynum is healthy. Big if.

West/ Utah - Could have a potentially elite frontcourt. Overall nice collection of young talent. Picked up a much needed PG in Trey Burke. Capspace.

Wow yeah forgot about Cleveland. They probably have the most pure upside of anyone in the league, but obviously a ton depends on Bynums health. If hes healthy and buys in, I could see the Cavs being like last years Warriors, scoring a first round upset (of the Knicks) then putting a real scare into someone in the 2nd round.
