If he can be like a 15-17 ppg (which wouldn't surprise me one bit) and Gasol plays motivated and not to mention Rose returning healthy, they could be pretty darn good.
I think their pieces fit better together than Cleveland's. Love and Lebron are perfect for each other, but other than that, their parts aren't ideal. LBJ is so much better though than anyone not named Durant that eventually he'll figure it out. But I think for next season, they finish second overall, especially with the Pacers essentially losing their two best players from last year.
