From Lottery to Legitimacy?

703 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Coatesvillain
Out of all the lottery teams this year, who do you guys think has the most potential to become a perennial playoff team? Why? And what will be the first year they make the playoffs?

Here's mine to show what I'm talking about:

Houston Rockets

Reason: Strong nucleus set in place with Cuttino Mobley, Steve Francis, and Eddie Griffin. If they can get Yao Ming in NBA form, they'll be a threat for years to come especially years after Shaq leaves.

First year in playoffs: 2003-2004
