The Weakest Link on Every NBA Contender

No NBA team is perfect, but these contenders come closer than most.

And that makes picking out their weak links tricky.

So we have to make important distinctions and deal in relative terms. The most important thing to keep in mind is that nobody's saying the weakness we highlight will lead to the downfall of a title contender. Instead, we're saying if a team on track for a championship goes off course, there's a good chance this particular shortcoming will be the reason why.

Sometimes we're talking about a specific player. Others, the focus will be on a position or even an entire end of the floor.

The criteria have to be broad because these teams generally don't have one obvious individual who'll hold them back. A player bad enough to derail a championship probably isn't in the rotation for a contender.

That's sort of what makes the team good enough to be in the title conversation.

So, again, no offense, contenders. You'll probably be fine. Just maybe, you know, keep an eye on the following trouble spots.
