what does each team need to accomplish next season in order to consider it a succesful season?
like the title says, what is the minimum a team can do next year and still be able to call it a succesful season by the fans? You can do however many teams you like.
i noticed i got -3 real quick. Just wanted to clarify that these are not rankings of some kind. I just listed the teams in case people wanted to do a copy and paste for their comments.
lakers-win the title, otherwise, its a failure
clippers- win about 30-35 games, and get Blake Griffin to be dominant at the 4
suns-make the playoffs, after losing amare, i don't expect much
kings-win 40 games, i don't think they can make the playoffs with the comp. in the west
warriors-progress curry and lee together, but not much else
jazz-Develop a pick and roll b/w williams and jefferson,beat LA & make it past the semis
thunder-win 53+ games, top 3 seed and continue to develop the core, maybe add a C
blazers- top 4 seed, but after doing little this offseason, i don't think they'll do much more
nuggets-make the playoffs and keep Melo
wolves- Fire the entire ownership, convince rubio to come over
spurs-Adjust Jefferson to the game, make a top 4 seed
rockets-make the playoffs, bring yao back to full strength
mavs-make it to western conf. finals
hornets-make the playoffs, keep Paul and get a solid 2nd man
grizzlies- make the playoffs, don't overpay their youth
bulls- Top 4 seed, make it to the conf. finals and mainly develop roses game
cavs-don't get stuck in mediocrity, accept low pick and restart
pacers-Develop Hibbert, don't waiste their cap space
pistons-uhh, honestly anything will do, i don't know what they're planning
bucks-top 5 seed, make it past the first round and develop bogut and jennings
knicks-make the playoffs, do enough to lure melo/cp3
nets-win 20 games, dont waist cap space
raptors-develop derozan and get more youth thru the draft picks
celtics-top 3 seed, win a title plain and simple
sixers-make the playoffs
wizards-make the playoffs, keep gilbert from hurting Wall's progress, get blatche concentrated
hawks-top 5 seed, 2nd round
heat-win the finals, no excuses
magic-make it to the finals as well, thats what we should expect
Championship is the only true successful accomplishment, but based on expectation...
rockets-Yao healthy and WCF
cavs-they need to win the lottery
clippers- come close to .500
kings- 30 wins
warriors- 35 wins
spurs-make it to the finals
rockets-2nd round and get yao healthy
wizards-come close to .500
I think anything less then the above can not be considered a succesful season for those teams. Obviously there are many side things such as development of certain players that are also a big deal for many of these teams for next year. But basically i cant see anything less then 30 wins really being called a successful year even though some of those teams would probably just like to be competitive.
Anything less than an nba championship is a disappointment for the T-wolves.
Uh hmm, u do realise u said "nba championship" and "T-wolves" in the same sentence, right? That is illegal, FYI.
Your moms illegal.
that his mom is under 18 or that she is in the country without proper citizenship?
