What's everybody saying about the most improved team from Draft, trades and free agency?

For me it's between Detroit, Cleveland, Brookyn or Houston. I think Cleveland just about take mst improved but Houston will make a deeper play off run. Dwight is massively over rated when you compare him to great Rockets Ceres if the past like Hakeem but their roster makes a lot of sense!

Not sure about most improved but the Wizards and Cavs have failed if they don't make the playoffs this season.

The Nets starting line up might be the strongest in the league but I still think they'll fall short. I do expect improved play from Williams though.

The best off-season goes to the 76ers. They're going to be terrible but have got two of the highest potential players in the draft with most likely 2 more lottery picks, maybe even 1st pick, in what is going to be a stacked draft. They also have a load of cap room to fill out the roster next summer. Team I'm looking forward to watching most is the warriors. Such a fun team and adding iggy and a backup big man in jermain O'neal was a great summer.

GS will be a year better and have 2 of the best shooters in the game! I was surprised they never moved for Andrew Bynum. I though OkC should have gone after Bynum as well.

Every year I seem to look at Minnesota and think they'll be fun to watch, this year will be the same if they keep Pekovic. The 2 they picked up the draft were great pick ups!

I think Houston will be the team to watch after the 2 obvious candidates Clippers and Miami.

I'm totally convinced that the Clippers are the team to beat in the West. It is very tight at the top and everyone will underestimate the Spurs again but they'll still be so consistent and have the best coach in the league.

T'Wolves got screwed by injuries last year with Love and Rubio both out for long stretches.

With Rubio it's a bit like D-Rose, you wonder if he's going to be injured most of his career. With D-Rose I hope not because if he's healthy the Bulls are 1 team that could really shake up the heat.

Spurs are finally done surely?


I'm with you on the clippers but Memphis added shooting with Mike Miller and that's what they lacked so if the coach gets it right they will be there or thereabouts.

I'm hopping back on the Pistons bandwagon. There were plenty of seats available so I grabbed a few tickets to see them take on the Hawks tomorrow night. It's truly amazing what the cutting of one play has done.

FYI, it will be my first game since 2009. Auburn Hills is just a damn hassle to drive to.

I was supporting the Cavs in these finals (as they were underdogs) until I found out their coach was a fucking proud Zionist who loved serving in the IDF..

Now very happy for Kerr and the Warriors.

I didn't watch any of the games (haven't watched NBA in 15 years) but I do understood that Cavs were unlucky when both Irvine and Love were injured during the play-offs (after James, their 2 best players). But, well, that's life.
Surprise choice of finals MVP. James was the best player though, next came Curry.

Iguodala was the Warriors best player throughout the finals. He stepped up massively when Curry was struggling until the last 2 or so games.

James of course carried the Cavs. Love and Irving being hurt meant they had to rely on 2 ex knicks to help Lebron and Mozgov. Never a recipie for success.

Lebron is a great player on the court but he really fails hard with his antics. And this BS MJ vs Lebron stuff needs to end now and forever. MJ is better.
