It's the preseason, so it's difficult to make too many determinations about team potential. After all, teams have minimized their playbooks to avoid revealing too much of what their opponents can expect during the regular season. Still, I think the fact that preseason teams are very "vanilla" means we can learn a lot about their straight-up, one-on-one ability against the guys across from them.
