Which Franchise Has The Best Future?
Posted 17 November 2012 - 10:06 AM
I'd say the Thunder, Rockets and Lakers.
Thunder have Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka who are extremely young yet dominant.
Rockets have Lin, Harden, and a bunch of other prospects, along with cap space.
Lakers have Dwight, along with a HUGE amount of cap room after Kobe and Gasol's contracts expire.

Like you said the Rockets have a lot of young players
The C's have young talent as well (Rondo, Bradley, Sullinger, etc.) and will have more cap space after Garnett and Pierce retire
I feel like Dwight will leave the Lakers after Kobe and Nash retire in 2 seasons and they start struggling

I'm not sure about the Lakers. They're good, but I don't see a future really. Nash will retire soon, so will Kobe. I agree with the Rockets and the Thunder, and as far as building blocks go, I might even throw the Hornets into the mix. They have their franchise centerpiece in Anthony Davis, other "stars" in Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon, and are starting to obtain role players to put around those guys (they traded for Ryan Anderson). I think that these moves don't mean too much success right now, but down the road I see the Hornets as a great team. So for me, the best futures in the NBA have to go to the Thunder, Rockets, and Hornets.

They got 1 young superstar at Durant, 1 young star at Westbrook, one player who's in the between of a role player and a star at Ibaka, one lottery rookie at Lamb and another rookie that wasn't a lottery pick for medical reasons (? I think) at Perry Jones III.
So, yeah, Thunder.
I mean, I don't count the Bulls that in the near future are gonna 3-peat!
