Sleeper team for next season
Anyone think who can run the table next year outside of the Lakers, Cavs, Celtics, Magic, or Spurs?
I would say Denver: they had a quiet offseason compaired to others but they still have Billiups and Melo who is only getting better.
The Blazers finally have a true point guard in Andre Miller. If Aldridge continues to develop and Oden stays healthy, then we could be looking at a 55+ win team. Alot of Portland fans want Jerryd Bayless to develop into a point guard, but he just looks much more comfortable as a scorer. Miller might be able to help him grow and develop, but he should look for a team that allows him to play his game.
Whenever I hear people talk about Portland, they NEVER bring up Martell Webster. I know he's not a star, but he does have a good amount of potential. He didn't play last year because of a foot injury, but he should be healthy this year. If he stays healthy, then he'll be an upgrade over Travis Outlaw. He's not the athlete that Outlaw is, but he's a better outside shooter and he works harder on defense.
