Smile Who will surprise this season?

Ok, it seems that every so often a team or two surprise and either make the playoffs when they weren't projected to, or the other way and under achieve when they were chosen to have a great season but disapoint. Which team do you think will surprise THE MOST one way or the other?

Jeffb, you can hate the Spurs all you want but they will always be in the big picture and top 3 in the west.

I think the Warriors are the sleepers this season. If Bogut and Lee get some good paint mojo going, they got a deep threat backcourt with Curry and Thompson. I think the Warriors could pile up a bunch of wins.

If sacramento could discipline their guards in adopting a pass first mentality. I honestly believe these guys would grab the 8th spot. solid young cast with each player excelling in personal roles, I'll be watching how this team will develop as the season goes.
