As a Piston fan, I think that the chances of us winning another ring in the 5-7 years are pretty low barring a franchise type talent in the draft or signing a top 5 player in FA.

Knight/Monroe are good young players but I'm not confident Knight ever figures it out at PG, and I think Monroe has started to plateau. Our success will depend on how great Drummond becomes.

I did. And then this season happened. I have accepted the universe will never let the Wolves win anything.

I will be a big fan still, but won't expect anything. About 9 players who have missed significant time or may miss significant time?

If the NBA goes on forever, then EVERY team has to win a title (barring a move or contraction), in fact every team will win infinite championships, so cheer up everyone.

Clippers winning it all never even crossed my mind as a realistic thought but this year, even if a huge amount of factors would have to go our way for that to happen, it's actually in the realm of possibility.

So yeah if there's hope for us, there's hope for every team in the league.

I'm a Knicks fan but I doubt we'll get a chip anytime soon. We have no young talent and are a tier 2 team at best. We're also cursed for some reason.

Ever? Yeah eventually again..maybe in like 30 years.

Yeah I think the Bulls winning it within 2-5 years is possible before the window is closed.

It was my 5th year following my team when they finally did win it all. ( i know, this isn't too long, but I wanted my fav player to get the ring so badly).

It meant so much more after following the team come up short then if they'd won in their first year i followed them.

That night was surreal.

Not when the robots take over in 2929, they will dominate. I hope its the NJ Robots though.

That's the problem, some franchises will be moved.

and I agree at some point, every team will win at least 1 title.

But it's been how long since a team like the bucks got a title?

Home town Raptors will never win the championship, the refs and league will never allow that to happen. After MLB Never Again...

Knicks fan here, obviously, but I think there's a chance. Of course, it would take a really hot JR Melo, and Felton from 3, a rejuvenated STAT, Shump with an incredible recovery from his ACL tear, and Mike Woodson coaching well in the playoffs.

Even then, the Knicks have pretty nice chances compared to other teams.
BAF 1 - Miami Heat
PG - Marcus Smart/ E'Twaun Moore/Tony Parker
SG - Luke Kennard/Jordan Clarkson/Nik Stauskas
SF - Justin Jackson
PF - Karl Anthony-Towns/David Lee
C - Clint Capela/Nene

Even Chicago is a great example for this.


Where were the Bulls before 1984?
Did we know we'd draft the GOAT? No way in hell.

You guys all have a chance. Back to the future and predicting Florida to win it? And then it happens?
You get the point.

i know the clips sucked for decades. but they have one advantage, you know what i mean. it's still the city of angels.
what is, say, cleveland? the forest city? forests don't win titles.
:lol:

just saying, l.a. is a big market, itjust needed some time to take advantage of that.
