In a day and age where franchises seek to stockpile elite talent, who’s got the best starting unit in the NBA?
We know about established groups like the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, but there are several teams hot on their tails.
While the league’s premier squads haven’t had to make significant changes to their starting fives, teams like the Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers all improved their title odds with a flurry of big-name signings.
With free agency still in full swing, it’s important to note that these projected lineups are far from complete. There are plenty of moves still to be made, but these rankings are aimed to give you an idea of where your favorite team’s starting five ranks in relation to the other 29 teams.
