Group D is the group of coach death, with Spoelstra, Kerr, Popovich, and Budenholzer all in this one group. It also looks to be the group of defense, as every team except for Dallas went for a strategy of stacking defensive talent. I think this strategy backfired a bit for Chicago here, as they went for Bam and Rudy with their first 2 picks but ended up as the weakest offensive team in a group with similarly defensive teams. I just don't see where this team is going to get its points from. Outside of Chicago, the other 3 teams in this group could be a complete tossup. The Heat have the best player in the group in Kawhi, but also have some serious offensive question marks in the lineup. Dallas has the strongest backcourt of the group, but has the weakest frontcourt and may struggle with the bigs of the other three teams. The Nets are balanced all-around, and may end up benefiting from a group of disjointed rosters.
