2025 is my guess.
Healthy Boston can actually win the title this season
They have a better chance of winning the title than any west team not named Golden State
Well sure, they'r the best in the east but at least 3 teams in the west better and will be for awhile.
Who are these 3 teams? The only team i see better than Boston at the moment are the Warriors.
Lakers are not better than them until they add another star
Not unless they trade for Kawhi or GS has substantial injury issues. Not beating GS as is, with or without Kyrie and Hayward.
Could happen as soon as 2020, but my guess is that the next superteam will be in LA. Once the Lakers get Kawhi, they will be poised to challenge and possibly dethrone GS.
Boston and Philly both have assets needed to make some moves, so can't rule either team out for that long.
In 2021, the unprotected heat draft pick will be the greatest player of all time, win mvp as a rookie and lead the Sixers to the first of seven straight championships.
Could happen next year. How, you ask? Simple, the top 8 teams in the west are all really good. There are no cupcake 4-8 seeds like in the east. Whomever comes out of the west could have played 50% more playoff games to get there and are tired. Imagine if you are GS and you have to play DEN in round 1, then LAL in round 2, then HOU in round 3. Sure every team you played in the west is better than what the East throws at you, but you had to work way harder to get there.
Houston got worse and there is a huge chasm between GS and everyone else. Including LA.
While everyone wants to crown Boston today, GS currently has a larger gap between them and everyone else in the West than Boston does in the East.
The championship series is the only one that Boston would have to win that is above their pay grade instead of well below.
For the next 4 years, it's gonna be either the Lakers, Warriors or Rockets. The West is going to win title after title after title until either LeBron retires and/or the Warriors get broken up.
Maybe so, but even getting worse HOU is still a harder matchup for GS than BOS. So will LAL
I dont agree at all..................I really think this is #18.
And yet you said Boston would have a chance?
Because GS is capable of winning every one of those series in 5 or less.
GS is losing to the Green. get comfortable with it
Since that is the most likely Finals matchup, would you care to bet on the 2019 champ?
would like to see that matchup, though...
I hate to say it but Boston could win next season, if they have everyone healthy.
