    Last or scraping the bottom with Indiana.

    Take Rush off Indiana and put in George (maybe even stephenson for hibbert).

    Take Moute off Milwaukee and put in L. Sanders.

    Take Thabeet off Memphis and put in Gay.

    btw, this 'yong gunz' nonsense is getting out of control.

    accomplsih something, anything first before dubbing yourself or giving yourself nicknames.

    nothing but a marketing scam for BC now that the team is in shambles.

    Nicely Said. It is a Marketing scheme to sell tickets and create some energy in the fan base.
    I had opened a similar thread before doing the comparison with other teams and in your list, I think we are better than Wolfs and maybe, just maybe, same level as pacers.

    That is true, but the problem with your assessment is that two of young Gunz will be signed to hefty long term contract by BC by then. Amir already got more than he deserved and BC will give a 5 year 30 million to Weems before Dec.

    We are investing money on a suspect talents without seeing anything REAL from them.

    How is Westbrook, Durant and Green down so low. They should be at the top of this list. So is Lopez, Favors and Williams.

    derozan, weems, johnson are without question at the bottom of that list.

    derozan, weems, johnson are shit.

    weems and johnson are bench players on any team that will win more than 20 games.

    derozan + ed davis + 2011 pick will be a legitimate trio to discuss.

    Not sure why you're excluding Granger from the Pacers. The guy is young.

    The best from the options: Westbrook , Durant. Green
    The Worst: Holiday ,young , turner
    The Raptors: The bottom half of the list for sure.

    this is what happens when you hire the son of a billionaire. bc's a rich kid who only got a job b/c his dad owned the team.

    amir johnson is going to be the biggest disappointment in raps history... he should not be included in any teams plans for the future... unless those plans are to win the lottery

    This is not a marketing scheme of any sort... One of the coaches started calling them the young guns because they are the youngest guys on the team and they showed up every night to work on there game. Let the season unfold, see how this team developes and then judge them. They may not win a lot of games but they want to be here and play entertaining basketball.

    They (Weems,DD,Amir- Father Jack) didn't create the nickname Young Gunz themselves- Wills Richardson, a Raptor security consultant came up with it: http://www.thestar.com/sports/basket...rs-some-sizzle
    Folks have no idea yet talking like they do- get a clue.lol

    You know what, I'm just gonna answer his question. I'm super bored anyways.

    Best would undoubtedly go to the OKC trio which scares the shit out of me. They pretty much have a 50 win franchise for the next 10 years, and they were so good last year. And they are still so young...

    Then Chicago. Noah and Rose don't even need a third guy pretty much. Noah counts as two.

    Memphis, Gay should be there, he's still young.

    Indiana, if you include Granger (27) he's not "as" young, but still.

    Philly definitely have the worst young trio...

    We are somewhere in the middle or bottom... Amir is just HAHA

    hmmm I think the Hakeem siging and the Araujo drafting are much worse. Even if Amir comes off the bench for all contracted years
