Mehh, I think the talent is there to at the very least be .500

That being said, this team...

A) Doesn't fit, players don't compliment each other
B) The coach and his system sucks balls
C) There is no depth on this team that can be depended on

So while we have talent, it's basically 1-7 at best and the rest of the team can't be counted on to give any kind of consistent production. Add to that the 1-7 players don't share the ball and play off one another, and don't seem to trust each other this is what you get.

You take one of DD/RG off this team and add one of Klay Thompson/Batum and then add a pure shooter off the bench (Jamal Crawford type of player) and this is a top 5 team in the EC imo. Essentially without shooting to spread the floor the offense gets stagnant and opposing teams pack the paint and dare us to shoot 18-25ft jumpers. Nothing going to the basket is ever easy with this team (or rarely).
