How far do you expect the Warriors to go next season?

That looks like the rotation.

Is it championship caliber?
Yeah, I think we've now achieved a championship-caliber roster, but that doesn't mean it is going to happen. I think there are 3-5 other teams that also have championship-caliber rosters. At the end of the season, all but one will be sulking... Or, hell, maybe there's a team out there that comes out of nowhere like Dallas in '11 and shocks everyone, leaving all of the "championship-caliber" rosters in its dust?

I still think the Cavs have one move left in them. They may choose to wait until the trade deadline to pull off a bigger move than they can right now, but they have plenty of assets yet to use. Still have all of their own draft picks and a first-rounder from Memphis, all of that filler that they got from Utah and a young, movable piece in Tristan Thompson to dangle for a rim protector, which is really all we need at this point.

Although, LeBron's friendship with Thompson may make his being traded unlikely... still lots of assets to use. I feel like there is one more major piece that will be added... and Ray Allen if he so chooses.

Ideally Finals, hopefully WCF, at the minimum 2nd round

Yeah it looks good, but the frontline is quite shaky healthwise (well, AV and Love anyways). If they address this, then they should be good to go, but another injury puts them in Miami position of having to play subpar players to compensate for the top heavy studs.
