    GS: Curry, Thompson, Green, Russell (23), Looney (23)
    Starters average age: 27.0,
    The youngest starting lineup with the most playoffs experiences.

    Nuggets:
    Murray, Harris, Jokic, Craigs, Milsap
    Starters average age: 27.2
    Could win the regular season with depth

    Clippers:
    Starters average age: 27.8
    Kawhi, George, Green, Zubac, Berveley
    Kawhi and George are the best duo in the nba?

    Lakers
    Starters average age: 29.0
    LeBron, Davis, Kuzma, Boogie, Green
    Are both LeBron and Davis top 5 players?

    Rockets average age: 29.8
    Harden, WB, Gordon, Tucker, Capela
    Have 67% of MVPs in 2017, 2018, 2019.

    Definitely the Nuggets.

    Getting a top 2 seed is going to be very important next season. Avoiding GSW, LAC, LAL, Nuggets and Utah in the 1st round will be very valuable, plus getting HCA in the 2nd round.

    Way too early @BigBum. We want our best roster in April/May, not in July/August. Can't tell you who will or won't be on the roster at that point.

    Can’t answer this definitively right now.

    But the right answer is Denver. Capela works them.

    Unable to rank? Very close?

    I think top 2 seeds are Nuggets and Clippers because of depth.

    Every team has last name Green in the roster?

    This is what I rank:

    Clippers - defense and balanced
    GS - 3 point shooting
    Rockets - Harden
    Nuggets - Add Porter Jr and Grant
    Lakers - everyone in the roster is overrated. 100% overrated.
    Jazz - no firepower

    I think the Jazz traded in some defense for more firepower this year. It's still a wait and see, as in all the West teams, but they are logically improved from "no firepower."

    On paper, Clippers should be able to shut teams down, defensively. But then again, on paper, Clippers had one of the best teams when they had CP3, Griffin, DJ, Jamal Crawford, Redick, Stevenson, Rivers, old Pierce, etc, but nothing came out of it.
