    GS
    I wrote about how the Warriors will be broken up in 2020. and having a team of max-level stars is really, really pricey. Golden State is not going to pay the enormous luxury tax bill.

    Celtics
    The Celtics will not afford Brown and Tatum given their depth and cap space in 2020 or 2021.

    Lakers
    Durant will join the Lakers, but their young talents are very overrated.

    Our Brightest spot:
    We have a best owner who is willing to pay $150 million or 200 million luxury tax bill for a chance to win the Championship.

    by then CP3 is old, but him and harden together takes up more than 80M cap space. our window is 2019 and 2020.

    Our best chance to win a championship was 2017-18.
    *That is not to say the window has closed.

    Sure, assuming nothing else changes in the league, your scenario is possible.

    What if Anthony Davis joins Tatum in Boston?

    What if KD and Donovan Mitchell go to the Knicks?

    New stars will emerge and the league will remain dynamic.

    lol, hell nah...CP3 will be on his last legs and Harden will be close to the end of his prime, and both of them will be making 40 mil+...you’re talking about GS, but Boston and Philly could be powerhouses by then

    this is why last season kills me, we had a great chance to win the title

    Anderson is off the book, we have money.

    GS add Boogie and Evans.

    2019 is not our year.

    I love how clutchfans is always looking way into the future. Here I am, just ready to get this season started, yet others already looked way past this season and are ready for our championship run some years down the road.

    I'm not sure how to categorize this? Optimistic or pessimistic.
