Post#1 » by d-train » Thu Sep 10, 2020 7:44 pm

Here's the 29 other teams:
Milwaukee Bucks
Toronto Raptors
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Clippers
Boston Celtics
Denver Nuggets
Indiana Pacers
Houston Rockets
Miami Heat
Oklahoma City Thunder
Utah Jazz
Dallas Mavericks
Philadelphia 76ers
Brooklyn Nets
Memphis Grizzlies
Phoenix Suns
Orlando Magic
San Antonio Spurs
Sacramento Kings
New Orleans Pelicans
Washington Wizards
Charlotte Hornets
Chicago Bulls
New York Knicks
Atlanta Hawks
Detroit Pistons
Cleveland Cavaliers
Minnesota Timberwolves
Golden State Warriors

Edit: Please include an explanation why you would prefer a team's roster over the Blazers. Show your work.

Right off the top of my head without an indepth look I like these teams:

Milwaukee Bucks
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Clippers
Denver Nuggets
Houston Rockets
Dallas Mavericks
Philadelphia 76ers
Memphis Grizzlies
New Orleans Pelicans
Atlanta Hawks
Minnesota Timberwolves
Golden State Warriors

This is not my final answer, I literally took just 2 minutes to go through the list. I need to look at more thoroughly. When I give my answer I will include an explanation why I would prefer the other team's roster over ours.

Some teams that are better would quickly lose stars to FA. So eliminate the LAs. Dallas did what I wish Portland had done. Got aggressive to get a generational player. Looks like they got a bargain in KP. They have free agent flexibility, too. Also a first date HC. That will be a fun team to watch, and will spend the next five years finishing ahead of PDX.

What took them so long to get aggressive? They had nothing to lose when they "got aggressive." Mavs for 7 years were somewhere between not so good and complete trash. I wonder why they didn't just skip that 7 years and go straight to aggressive.

Miami would be my top choice. I love the way they play hustling, unselfish team basketball on both ends. Spoelstra and Riley have done a fantastic job assembling the roster and developing player.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

They won a chip in 2011, treadmilled-to-sucked for 7 years then ended up with another franchise player. They are like the Packers of the NBA, going from Farve to Aaron in like one year.

Doncic will be a GOAT caliber player when he is done in this league. I love Dame to death, but I would trade two Dame Lillards for one Luka Doncic.

Boston, Dallas, Denver, GS, Lakers, Clips, Bucks, Nets, NOP, Philly

All have more of a legit shot at a title than Portland I’d say

as much as I love watching Zingis play... he's as injury prone as it gets. he can't be relied on to stay healthy... ever. unfortunately.

Give me the Celtics, Nuggets, Heat and Pelicans. Pelicans in particular have a ton of FRP's as
trade assets to get any one player they want.
