With the exchange of Westbrook and Paul, the league now has six super king bomb combinations. The six combinations are James + Davis of the Lakers, Leonard + George of the Clippers, Curry + Thompson of the Warriors, Westbrook + Harden of the Rockets, Irving + Durant of the Nets, and Bucks. The alphabet brother + Middleton. It can be said that the strength of these six teams is very close when all members are healthy, so who do you think are you more optimistic about?
The combination of James and Davis is still very strong on paper. Although the two have not cooperated, they For players like James and Davis, there is no problem with a strong performance in the new season. Moreover, the Lakers also strengthened the thickness of the lineup in the later stages. They introduced strong players such as Danny Green, Bradley, and Cousins. It can be said that the current lineup of the Lakers is very competitive whether it is a substitute or a starter. . As long as the two stay healthy, they are the favorite teams for the championship.
After getting Leonard and George, the Clippers can be said to be the strongest team on paper. In the starting lineup, Leonard + George + Beverley are very strong offensive and defensive players, and there are also combinations like Lu Wei + Harrell on the bench. It can be said that the Clippers are the most powerful contenders for the championship in the new season. Regardless of team configuration or team culture, the current Clippers are better than the Lakers in the same city. The Lakers are basically a brand new lineup, even the system. The Clippers have a mature system and a mature team. culture.
The combination of Curry and Thompson has proved himself, as long as Thompson can return healthy, then the Warriors will still be the championship ball team. The combination of these two people also created 73 wins in NBA history and won the championship. The Warriors who did not have Durant in the playoffs also defeated the Rockets by splash and swept the Blazers. In the finals, if Thompson is not affected by injury, the Raptors may not be the championship team. Although Durant and Iguodala left, the Warriors strengthened Russell and Caulistan. The strength of the Warriors is still there, as long as Brother Splash is healthy.
The combination of Harden and Westbrook is also the most uncertain duo in the NBA. The duo is definitely on paper strength. They are very tough. Both of them are the top scorers in recent years. It can be seen that the two players have explosive scoring power, but at the same time these two are also the players who occupy the most ball rights in the league, so the distribution of ball rights in the new season will be a problem. As long as these two play chemistry, the Rockets are still the championship team. The author thinks that the match of the two should not be a problem. After all, the Rockets and the Thunder have similar play styles, but the Rockets are more three-point shooters, which may be a liberation for Westbrook.
This combination of the Nets is also the combination with the largest risk factor. The risk still lies with Durant. If Durant does not Return to peak state, then the Nets want to win the championship is still very difficult. After all, Irving never showed his ability to lead in the playoffs, even Durant led the team alone and did not win in the finals. In addition to these two, the Nets only has Dinwiddie, but these players did not show themselves in the playoffs, so the Nets still have a long way to go for a championship.
Giannis + Middleton
The combination of Giannis and Middleton has shown its power last season and won the best in the league The record, the disintegration of the Eastern Raptors and Celtics this season, also made the Bucks even more dominant in the Eastern Conference. The new season in the Eastern Conference on the BucksThe threatening team may only be the 76ers. The key factor in this combination of Antetokounmpo is still with Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo’s technical shortcomings in the Eastern Finals have been infinitely magnified, and it depends on whether Antetokounmpo can grow again and raise another level.
