Here we go again, it's deja vu from 3 years ago...
How did we get here? It certainly hasn't been the ride that was expected after that 54 win season, but it seems that a few smart moves down the line have taken a young promising team with holes and uncertainty (Bayless/Rodriguez/Outlaw) to a vet team with injuries, to a mixture of young and vet players all playing great ball healthy. So I ask if you share the same opinion, that barring injury and a possibly returning/healthy Oden, this is the team we have been waiting for, the perfect mix of defense, age, potential, peaking, coaching and emotional components a team needs to contend. The fun part is, following the Miami victory, even the players might be realizing how good they can be.
EDIT: I forgot I wanted to mention I think Roy's injury, although it hurt us a lot and lowered his ceiling dramatically, may have raised the ceiling of the team, should he accept his new role. A Roy centered team was very good, but this balanced team that just includes him could be way better.
What is this teams ceiling?
