Provided they stay injury free, I don't see why not. What I love about the Spurs this season is the way they've spread out the scoring load without being so reliant on Duncan/Manu/Parker. They comfortably go 9-10 deep and that's a must for any championship contending team. There's always the concern for injuries with this team but Pop seems to be doing a great job massaging his stars' minutes.

The improved play of Richard Jefferson has to continue for this team to succeed as well. I really like their bench too. They've got all the elements of a championship team and I personally think they're slightly better than the Lakers.

In terms of talent, I would say Lamar Odom easily.

Who would I want as a role playing power forward for a championship team with stars already in place? Horace Grant.

Still, Odom is the better player.

I really like both of these guys, more as good role players than star players, however.

Ty Lawson - already think he's better than a lot of starting PGs and would be awesome in an uptempo system like the Knicks run, possibly even better than Ray Felton. I think his ceiling is an 18/8 type of guy.

Arron Afflalo - I think he's a much better offensive player than he's given credit for and it'll be apparent after Melo leaves this season. Guys with his defensive and shooting ability are invaluable for good teams with a star swingman and he can pretty much fit into any situation. In the right situation he can be a 16 ppg guy with good defense on a very good team.

1. Whiteside is still pretty raw and doesn't have a great idea of system basketball.
2. He's stuck behind 4 better players at the moment in Cousins, Landry, Dalembert and Thompson.

I've seen these guys play since high school and have always thought they were NBA talents. Both guys are pretty versatile and can do a little bit of everything (Especially Marcus) but don't have star potential by any means. Marcus has more perimeter skills, but Markieff's a bit bigger and is a better rebounder/post defender. I can see Marcus being a start, but Markieff is probably a solid backup 4/5.

Despite my dislike for the guy, with the right supporting cast, it'd have to be LeBron James.

I wouldn't say way higher, because Howard is a pretty damn good player already, but yes, I do believe Blake can become an even better player than Dwight Howard simply due to his heavy offensive advantage over Dwight.
