Default Which team out of nowhere will join the elite?

And will there be such a team?

Maybe the Hornets? They have all the tools.

No team will jump into elite status because that doesnt happen in the NBA.

Grizzlies? Don't think so. Playoffs are their maximum.
Bucks? Not exactly snowballs chance in hell but I don't see it.
Knicks? Now that would be a shocker. As much as I'd like to see it, it's not happening yet.

As for the Hornets..well..

Paul, he may make another leap. If Peja's healthy, he"ll give around 18 ppg.
West is one of the better PF's, Chandler is a very useful center, add Mo Pete to the equation...who knows.

i think a lot of people are sleeping on the hornets. if everyone stays healthy, they're a very solid team.

I don't think any team will come "out of nowhere" to join the "elite". I think there will be teams that certainly surprise us. There always are.

I would say that if any team joins the elite, it would be New Orleans. I just doubt their ability to stay healthy.

I think teams like Atlanta and Seattle will be better than expected. I always pick Seattle to do better than they do, though. Don't know why. I just do.

I think New Orleans has the best chance...they're under everyone's radar...with West, Paul and healthy Peja...they could potentially be a threat.

Ehh. New Orleans can be better than expected. Definitely. They have all the tools to do that. But I'd say they max out at around the 4-5 seed, probably a little higher. There's no way they're better than the big three, and I can't see them being better than Houston or Denver either.

Let's also not forget who their head coach is...

Well if you are like me, you consider the elite to be San Antonio, Dallas and the Suns. I dont foresee any teams joining the elite this year, but if anyone has a shot i guess i would go with the Celtics, Houston, Nuggets or the Jazz.

I guess some might consider the Cavs elite after last year, but aside from Lebron, i really just dont see them as all that great.
