Who is ready to rise high in 2012-13?

Charlie Widdoes, ClipperBlog: Klay Thompson. A perfect blend of ability and opportunity should result in a breakout sophomore season for Thompson. We know he can shoot the lights out (41 percent from 3 as a rookie), and he fits perfectly on the wing in what could be an explosive Warriors offense. And: Wade: There seems to be a lasting -- perhaps deepening -- chasm between those teams that battled their way into the postseason and those left on the outside looking in. Phoenix got worse, Portland didn't do much, and lord knows what Houston is doing. Minnesota seems like the best bet, but lacking Rubio to start won't help. So I'll pick Golden State, which has youth, some dynamic talent, a few reliable veterans and a motivational coach who may be able to find a way to make it all work.
