I could argue that success depends on Lowry and Calderon. They can make or break the game of other players on the team
If we're going to be a playoff team it's going to depend on a lot of things:

- Lowry playing like he has the prev two seasons, especially defensively
- Calderon really getting the bench going offensively
- Bargs/Derozan continuing to improve defensively
- Rookies Valanciunas and Ross need to be contributors
- Lucas if/when injuries occur will need to step up
- Fields needs to be better than last season and more like 20010-11
- Remaining relatively healthy

We can deal with one of those things not really happening but multiple would be a major issue.
