    Not sure what there is to be so mixed about. The team not only made the Finals last season(whether you think they got lucky or not, they still took care of business and won the WCF in their first playoffs playing together). But also people seem to forget that they were great all regular season finishing 1 win behind the best overall record in the NBA. Shit, more importantly they DID finish #1, by a decent margin, in Win/Loss record against teams over .500.

    So that confirms my suspicion that, when they were motivated to win last season, like when they knew they were playing against a winning team, they were one the hardest teams in the entire league to beat. They just played so much more efficient and unselfish on offense and hustled so hard on defense when they were motivated. And they'll be motivated af this season knowing they had the championship in their grasp, but literally just a handful of possessions not going their way could have been the difference in them choking it away. And that was with the Bucks having big matchup advantages over them when it comes to size. They're going to want to prove the haters wrong who called their playoff run a fluke too. They already looked like it in preseason, looked like they hadn't missed a step at all dominating the Lakers and Blazers, and seem like they were ready to take care of business and start the reg season hot.

    And they brought back everyone important so will finally have continuity and won't have to take time building a chemistry playing together with CP3, and they filled massive holes on the bench thanks to signing Javale McGee and Landry Shamet. Ayton and Booker now have true backups that can play defense and fit our offensive style. Also the young core should only be improved as they get closer to their primes... Book/Ayton/Bridges/Johnson have all improved something new about their game each year they've been in the league. This team will having the confidence that comes with finally having good playoff experience under their belts, and also winning multiple series+making the Finals. So unless injuries happen, I just really don't see how they shouldn't be at least top 5 and wont be surprised if they finish with the best record in the NBA.
