    Default Predict the NBA franchise of the next decade

    While there is much debate over the last ten years (Spurs or Lakers).

    Who do you see being the best team of the next decade?
    Since Wade, Lebron, and Bosh are FA this might be a hard one.

    OKC, LA, or if LeBron decides to go with a decent team, that team.
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    I like Portland and OK city in a few years if all goes well. Atlanta as well, they are going to be contenders for a long time. Orlando maybe, they need to retool around Dwight to stay contenders. And of course, once Larry's 3 year plan comes to fruition we will be winning at least 3 championships. It will be just like the 5 game win streak but over multiple seasons!!

    I think God is going to punish the NBA by giving the first pick to the Wolves.

    Rubio, Flynn, and Wall.

    The Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

    After the early domination by the traditional Lakeshow and short term Celts rivalry over the next year or two, the summer of Lebron etc. will occur, as will a possible lockout. What happens to the league after that is virtually impossible to know, other than believing that the tradition of large market teams continuing to have the upper hand due to their willingness to spend whatever it takes to an extent even in the face of the horrendous luxury tax which actually does the opposite of what it is designed to do, which is to establish a more even competition among franchises for talented players. Now, those willing to spend the most into luxury tax territory due to having the ownership with the deepest pockets tend to end up with more of the better free agents.

    So, New York, LA, Boston, and possibly Dallas, with an outside shot of Portland making it to elite status for a while seem to be the safe bets.

    The Lakers, they still have like 5 years left of contending maybe more, Kobe is 30, Gasol is 29,Artest 28, Bynum 22, Odom 28 and they always get good players. Another team is going to be the Cleveland Cavaliers, Lebron is not going anywhere and they are going to have cap space next year to sign whoever they want.

    Dallas...

    Probably not but it would be exciting if the pacers do not turn the corner.

    Lakers for a while. Kobe still has quite a bit of years left in him and Gasol still isn't 30 yet. Odom and Artest are right at 30.

    Thunder. Kevin Durrant is an absolute gem, and is surrounded by some studs. That team is going to be in the WCF's in a couple of years.

    Whatever team Lebron is on. If the Cavs don't make it to the finals, then I think there's a good chance that's the Knicks.

    I'll go with Thingfish, Blazers and OKC are really building a solid Team for the future.

    Hopefully we'll start doing that in another 2 years.

    LAKERS. Just too much talent for other teams to overcome.

    New York Knicks. LeBron just seems to enjoy hamming it up for the cameras too much, NY seems like a natural destination for him.

    Anyway, it's wherever LeBron ends up, easy as that.

    The Thunder have a long way to go before they're elite. And even when Portland was full strength, they didn't look too convincing. Honestly, I think they end up as the Chicago of this decade - a team of talented players who never really put it together the way they were projected to, and then the window passed.

    Maybe the question should be: "where do people think Lebron is going?"
