With the NBA Free Agency upon us and teams trying to figure how to beat the Warriors in the playoffs. I believe only three teams have a chance to dethrone the Warriors.
This is the team with the best shot at beating the champs. With the resigning of Chris Paul the Rockets are going to make another run at the Warriors. Losing Trevor Ariza to the Suns hurts the Rockets defensively. The Rockets will need to make some more player moves to replace Ariza.
Next are the Celtics who pushed Cleveland to the Eastern Conference Finals without Kyrie Irving or Gordon Hayward. Brad Stevens did a great job coaching up his team and will them to the next level of the playoffs. This is good young team that plays together. They are an elite defensive team already who needs to improve offensively. Irving and Hayward will help the offense improve.
This young team overachieved last season led by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. With a little more seasoning this team can reach elite level status. Philly will need to make some player moves to complete the roster for a playoff run.
This list may shrink or expand after all the NBA player movement is completed. Stay tune for the installment.
