Default Among these teams, which will win a title first:

Clippers
Wizards
Cavaliers
Knicks
Kings
Timberwolves
Bucks

Ignoring all past success each franchise has had - lets just look at the future for a moment. Based on how you project these teams look now and could eventually look in the future which ones have the greatest probability of winning a title in the near future? Do any of them really have a shot?

With the chance of an Irving/Lebron tandem in the future, I would go with Cleveland. The Bucks don't care about competing and the twolves are content with just making the playoffs for the first time in a decade. The clippers have a nice team. But they don't have enough dynamic wing players to win a title. The Knicks will never win another championship.

As of right now, I'm going to with my homer pick and say the Clippers.

Cavs, Wizards an Wolves are the next three for me.

The Wizards core sucks balls. I have no idea how anyone could think that highly of them. Their best player is pg who is still living off the the "potential" excuse. After that they have a nice prospect in Beal and a bunch of role players. Otto Porter is an average player in the NBA imo.

I'm not betting on Wall, Porter, Beal, etc. My Wizards prediction is about 17 years from now. After the Clippers, I don't see a core in any of the others teams that could win a championship before their key players decline. We going at act like each decade of basketball (other than the piss shit 70s) isn't usually dominated by 1-3 teams?

knicks. they dominated the heat last year and if it wasnt for the pacers, they would have put up a good fight against them in the playoffs as well. sure they didnt get much better in the offseason, but they did not get worse at all, unless you think kidd retiring (didnt hit a shit the last month of the season), novak being traded (couldn't even get off the bench in the playoffs due to being a horrid defensive player/ and incapable of getting off a shot), camby being traded (how many playoff minutes?), and copeland leaving (good offensive talent, very bad defensive).

oh wait, this is ISH. not a serious thread. oops

lets go knicks. prove the trolls wrong and make them disappear like they did everytime the knicks beat the heat

Honestly, it's got to be te Knicks or the Clippers, because I don't see any of these other teams being able to maintain a base or attract key free agents--they all may get windows via good draft picks but their windows are going to be very small.
