Yea, I gotta put Atlanta

Yea, I gotta put Atlanta in.

I see Dallas as a Championship darkhorse. I think with Kidd-Howard-Marion-Dirk-Terry and Dampier could win 55-59 wins

Cleveland

I don't think Cleveland will be second. Don't get me wrong they'll have a solid season, but Orlando adding Carter I think puts them over Cleveland. Otherwise, in the West it looks almost perfect to me, except I'm not sure Portland will be that good. Instead, I might put Denver there. Good Job.

Agree witt most except for Denver over Dallas and Charlotte in not Chicago. Also I'm going to say OKC beats out GS for the 8th spot but it's very open

Knicksboy

It's all good man. This site is made for arguing and debating. I didn't take anything personal and I hope you didn't either. I am sorry too though.

Wow

Where is Iggy9 to defend his team??? Philly has to make it, Andre Miller was good, but now I'm looking for Andre to step up and Jrue Holiday better be readay to get some minutes now. In the West I'll put the Rockets in there at the eight. Bias much? Yes.

Sorry. Lou Williams is not a PG. He is a SG. No real PG so no playoffs. Rockets...I'll let you think that one over.

I agree with Knicksboy man

I have to agree. I think Philly will be on the outside looking in. Lou will do his best, but it wont be good enough.

Unless Philly trades Dalembert and gets a starting level PG, which would be a steal. But I dont see that happening right now.

Brand would have to be a world killer and Andre would have to dominate at an extremely high level and so would Thad. Thats too much.

And dont get me started on Holiday. Makes my head hurt thinking about it lol...

If the 76ers can add Jamaal

If the 76ers can add Jamaal Tinsley...they could be a playoff team

Yea probably

That would be a good move, if he's in bball shape. Him and Miller are very similar when they're both at their best.

Well....

What does Holiday do? From what I've seen (I honestly only saw him 2 times in the regular season and 2 time sin the tourny, he was sooo bad those games). I hope he does good though, since he's on Andre's team.lol

With Jrue Holiday, I think

With Jrue Holiday, I think you get a Gary Payton type player. He is more of a PG. He defends well and in the Orlando summer league, he shows great D and nice slashing ability. I think in 3 to 4 years, we may be calling Jrue Holiday one of the best players out of that draft.

well....

the eastern conference seems good, but the warriors over the clippers and suns?

Also, i wouldn't be surprised if the hornets don't make it cuz they havent made any offseason moves to improve their team

As long as CP3, West and

As long as CP3, West and Chandler are there...they will make it.

The Warriors are gonna be good. Look for them to make some moves to allow Randolph and Curry to start.

still...

the warriors have only like 2 centers on their team and only 2 power forwards, i dont think thats enough to compete in the west

however, the clippers are stacked with young talent

thats all im trying to say

ATL only 8th? If Marvin ends

ATL only 8th? If Marvin ends up resigning the team will be a lot better than they were last year but they will go from 4th to 8th? Def don't agree on that.

Ohmilanta- I understand you.

Ohmilanta- I understand you. But I think Ellis in year 2 running the point with Curry, Randolph,Maggette, Jackson, Wright and Biedrens will be a playoff team.

ball4life66- They didn't improve. They are just coming into the season another year older. Washington will come in healthy, Toronto has got Hedo, Miami may get Odom, Chicago has Derrick Rose coming in year 2...Atlanta falls.

I'm going to throw Detroit

I'm going to throw Detroit in there due to the new line-up. Their outcome thoroughly depends upon team chemistry, and a more spacious offence seems to be more likely.

PG-Stuckey
SG-Rip Hamilton
SF-Tayshaun Prince
PF-Charlie Villianueva
C- Kwame Brown

Bench
-Ben Gordon
-Austin Daye
-Jason Maxiell
-Chris Wilcox

The team seems to be lacking a strong inside presence and is loaded with scoring but it is unclear as to how a two 1st options (C.V when Redd went down) will jell.
An entirely new look with an unpredictable season up ahead. If the Pistons make the playoffs it will be between 6th-8th.

Solid list

I would put Phoenix over Golden State.

Indiana might challenge Toronto for the last spot in the East.

Good list.

Knickboy you are my homie but

Here are my playoff teams for the East and West. I doing this thinking

-Odom To Miami is not going to happen
-Boozer stays in Utah until they trade him before they have to pay the luxuary maybe before the season because it would be stupid to keep him and slow Milsap's developement

-Sessions to NY is something I hope for
-Lee stays in NY is something i dont care if it does or does not happen

Eastern Conference

1. Boston
2. Cleveland
3.Orlando
4.Washington
5.Atlanta
6.Miami
7.Chicago
8.Toronto

Western Conference

1. Los Angeles
2. San Antonio
3. Dallas
4. Portland
5. Denver
6. New Orleans is my team but Phoenix will make the playoffs
7. Utah
8. Golden State state could possibly beat out the Hornets but I doubt it

tell what you think..

All in all the last spots

All in all the last spots to both conference will be a dog fight and the Knicks if they can keep Lee and add Sessions could even grab it. Bulls dont have Boozer yet. The Boozer trade can change a lot. Also the longer Utah keeps Boozer the longer they will be take hits.
