Simple question what do you guys think the league will look like in 5 years? What teams at the top and which at the bottom? What players will be elite/franchise defining and who will have trailed off? This is how I see the league as a European who watches 5-6 games a week. Some of my predictions: -Lebron retires after 1 year playing with whichever team drafts his oldest son. He ends up signing a 10 day contract the next year and retires a Cavalier -Nuggets are the best team in the west, Mavericks and Clippers just below them. Teams at the bottom of the west include the Warriors, Spurs, and OKC. -The best team in the east is the 76ers followed by the Bucks and Celtics. Pacers are back near the bottom of the table after Oladipo leaves (prediction). Raptors are mid table, fighting for playoff spot. Bulls are back in the playoff hunt and Pistons are the worst team in the league -Top players: Booker, Doncic, Simmons, Taytum, Kuzma, Jokic, Giannis, D-Lo, Embiid, Markannen, Marvin Bagley, “(unknown franchise player)” - I predict another superstar/franchise player will emerge in 5-6 years and get Jordan level hype. Can shoot, pass, defend, rebound. Will end up in bringing about a dynasty and become the topic that is talked about everyday (kinda like How LBj is now).
