Yea I think the Warriors will be solid. Maybe not a top 3 team but they could still be 4-8. Wiggins could have a solid year and that would be enough to keep them afloat IMO. Wiggins would have to be horrendous for them to be one of the worst teams if healthy. I think they can compensate for maybe 60-80 percent of Klay's production and that should be enough to keep them good.

Pelicans, Kings, OKC have all had really good stretches at one point or another in recent seasons. We haven't. I still put them over us on paper because they have proven to show stretches of consistency. We have flip-flopped like crazy and very rarely can put together 3 consecutive wins. These other teams have had some big runs.

My thoughts change dramatically if Edwards, Culver, or Okogie have explosive seasons.
When luck shuts the door skill comes in through the window.

If they want to add injury clauses to wipe a players cap off a season long injury year, that would be fine because every team would have that ability then. But these loopholes to allow them to spend as much as they can aren't options available to every team.

TPEs are absolutely available to every team

Nice bot response. I never said they weren't. The financial fees resulting from their use aren't something they can all take on. Please, cropping a point out to respond to is fine. Cropping half a point out, not fine.
