It seems the bar is set pretty high. There need to be almost 4 starters who dominate their positions, and at least 2 that could lead their own elite team, and 2 others that could be their sidekick, and then the bench seems to require either an elite role player glue guy, past prime allstar, 6poy, etc, or several.
We have a lot to prove to consider this roster likely to even hang in the second round.
A lot needs to go right, but I could see a lot of our players on a contender, AB, Crowder, Horford, Smart. JJ. but the key requisite pieces aren't there: more elite scoring and rebounding.
