Great defensive front court alone makes it not the worst. Draymond plays for a new contract so he will be an Allstar again. Looney should really surprise next year with more minutes.
yeah not great otherwise but that roster with Curry is capable of winning 47-52/53 games. The West isn't as strong anymore so Dubs should still get somewhere between 4 and 6 seed.
i think the West will be stronger next year actually, it took 48 wins to make the the 8th seed, and that's without LeBron/Lakers and Minny having a down year. Kings and Mavs should be even better too.
Kings are my surprise team next year. They should go over 50 wins but Idk if teams like Denver, Portland or Houston sustain their level of play. Wouldn't be surprised if SA misses the playoffs as well.
no reason why Spurs should miss it, they get Dejounte back this year from injury + White should continue to get better and better, also Lonnie Walker should take on a bigger role for them, and obviously DeRozan/Aldridge are still solid.
it's tough, I really don't know who'll miss the POs in the West. it's damn crowded. maybe the Clippers if they don't really add anyone. other than that, Phoenix is the only team I can't see fighting for the POs in the WC.
