What's so great about their starting 5 , an all star and 4 role players. Without harden they' re bottom 3 in the league. And I think guys like asik, Patterson and parsons are as good as they're ever going to be - don't see much upside there. They're smart players who are average athletes
The only enigma is Lin, who may end up very good or major bust, so far he's been pretty mediocre.
And aside from Asik, not much defensive play in their starting lineup either.
