There will be times when everyone gets excited because it appears that we are turning a corner only to find that we're still very far away from being a perennial contender. At this point, all BC can do is stockpile talent, make efforts to develop that talent, and build towards a competitive culture. We're years away from being good.
5-8yrs? This isn't Baseball or Hockey. The roster is a lot smaller, so unless all you do is make picks and don't use capspace with other moves then maybe yes, 5-8yrs,otherwise it can be turned around a lot quicker in the NBA. If the right pick is made and the right moves are made in the summer with the cap space I wouldn't be shocked to be a playoff team next season.
