I don't think the Grizzlies are going anywhere. They and the Knicks probably have the smallest window. Clippers and Thunder have the largest windows.

As long as LeBron is playing, his team will always have a shot.

Added them seeing as they are just as good as Memphis/Knicks really.

Spurs - i think after this year they retool a bit. Hmm...2 years?
Clippers - Maybe as long as 4/5 years.
Knicks - 2 years then they will need to retool around Melo/Chandler/Shump
Grizzles - Several Years.
Warriors - Don't feel they can get out of West.

Teams have different levels of chances, like i would rather have the HEat's window for 1 year than the Knicks window for 5 or the Warriors for 10.

Heat - as long as lebron is elite (5-7 years)
Thunder - as long as Durant is elite (8-10 years)
Spurs - 2-3 years
Clippers - As long as cp3 + blake remain healthy/in LA
Knicks - 0 years they suck
Grizzles - looks like they're gonna trade gAy soon so maybe this year that's it
Warriors - toughest one. they're pretty young - i'll go 3-4 years.

This is the Heat's last year IMO. Wade is declining fast and their bench is super old.

Heat and Thunder basically have until contracts run out or 5 years counting primes. Although Thunder can even go longer than that. Everyone else is on a year to year basis. Spurs, Clips, Grizz.. all can bottom out in the next could of years, they are too many unresolved variables. If CP3 leaves the Clips they go from true contenders to just merely strong competition.

Yet just having LBJ and a strong supporting cast is enough to contend.

And which young up and coming east team is gonna pass them?

celtics - core is older than miami's

Nets - they're ok but miami will still be way better.

Lebron/Bosh duo is still good enough to contend with pieces added...Lebron and Bosh are both only 28 afterall.

Denver has a better chance at developing into a contender than a few of these teams. Houston too.
