Timberwolves aren’t making playoffs, they might take our crown as the worst defensive team next season

I thought his game reminded me of Devin Booker but with more PG ability. I said before there are big PGs in this draft and he is one of them.

@MirORich He said OKC would take a big step back not forward.

Okay , I did my own speculative standings:

(1) Lakers
(2) Clippers
(3) Maverick
(4) Blazers - Healthy bigs
(5) Rockets
(6) Jazz
(7) Nuggets - Losing Grant was big IMO
(8) Suns - CP3 will drag anytime there
(9) Grizzlies
(10) Golden State - Generational talent in curry but people are overrating them even before Klay went out.

(11) T’wolves - Too many holes on that team.
(12) Kings
(13) Spurs
(14) Pelicans - Zero spacing.
(15) Thunder - Worst roster in the league.

11-14 is a crapshoot and doesn’t matter.

Grizzlies will be in the play in tourney again for the 7/8 seed lol. I certainly don’t see them being a bottom 4 team overall without some catastrophic injury.
The west is tough to figure. I’d put them in tiers from best to worst, as follows:

Tier 1: best of the west
1) Lakers
2) Nuggets
3) Clippers

Tier 2: middle of the pack, fighting for tier 1
1) Blazers- perhaps the most improved team
2) Mavericks
3) Jazz
4) Suns- undefeated in the bubble & they added CP3.

Tier 3: the question marks, who could rise to tier 2 or fall to tier 4
1) Warriors- can they withstand Klay’s injury and how do Wiggins & Wiseman mesh?
2) Rockets- will they trade Harden or Russ?
3) Spurs- seem to be a team in transition.
4) Timberwolves- how does the backcourt of Russell & Edwards mesh?
5) Grizzlies- young team that surprised everyone a year ago; they will be without one of their best players, in Jaren Jackson; could fall to tier 4, but will Ja Morant let that happen?

Tier 4: Dregs of the west
1) Thunder- in full tank mode.
