    Watching the Spurs, they play two bigs with Poeltl and Aldridge, and the two of them just look slow by today's standards.

    Blazers lineup looks like this:

    Starters:
    1 Damian Lillard
    2 CJ McCollum
    3 Rodney Hood
    4 Zach Collins
    5 Hassan Whiteside

    Bench:
    1 Anfernee Simons
    2 Kent Bazemore
    3 Mario Hezonja
    4 Skal Labissiere
    5 Anthony Tolliver

    I think they're taking a step back this year. The bench, in particular, isn't very good or cohesive.

    From the JLIII, Earl Watson, Jamaal Tinsley era to talking about coming on top in the WC with Conley, Mitchell, Gobert... in a relatively short period of time. With some mistakes and lucky shots along the way I think this FO ranks amongst the top in the league. Let’s go!

    The Jazz or Nuggets have the best regular season teams. The Clippers have the best playoff team.

    Looking at the Rockets, their main weakness is rebounding. They're probably going to start Harden, Westbrook and Gordon together. If they want to bring Gordon off the bench, they'll likely start Daniel House or Gerald Green. Their main PF is PJ Tucker, who is 6'6" and now 34 years old. They're a small team 1-4, and this is what did them in during the playoffs last year when guys like Kevon Looney and Andre Iguodala ate them up on the offensive glass. Capella is a fine rebounder. Their backup 5s are now Nene and Tyson Chandler, both 37 years old, who are likely limited in terms of the minutes they'll play. They're going to give up points in the paint and offensive rebounds, unless their young guy Isaiah Hartenstein makes huge strides.

    I think this takes them out of the top tier in the west.
