2.Celtics- i think they are better than Clvnd, but they are old and will get hurt at least for a few games
3.Magic-Vince>Turk, but Vince is NOT >Turk AND C. Lee
4.Hawks-cant get over the hump
5.Wizards-Laugh if u want, but Wiz w/ healthy Arenas have always been top 5 in the East, very deep now
7.Bulls-1 major FA from becoming a title contender (Wade, Bosh,Stoudemire)
8.Raptors-too international, not enough athletes
West- After the top 4, its wide open for the young teams
3.Mavs-really like their squad
5.Blazers-YOU HAVE MONEY, GET ANOTHER STAR!
7.Hornets-starting too see how much they overdepend on Paul, their not that good.
8.Clippers-once u stop laughing, tell me who else in the west is that much better than them?
You are going to take suns hornets and please the clippers over th jazz COME ON!
Look for GSW or okc to make a push, i dont expect many wins from NOH either. harden, durant, westbrook, green. ellis,randolph curry, jackson. lac is only there if baron tries
In the East your forgetting Miami and Detroit. Yea i know the Pistons lost some key players but yet they have gained some in Ben Gordan and Charlie Villanueva. In the West really the Clippers they are not gonna be in the playoffs in Griffins rookie season. The UTAH JAZZ they will make the playoffs yes they were the 8th seed last year but they had injuries if the don't get hurt look for them to make the 4th spot,behind the Nuggets the Lakers and the Rockets maybe Spurs. And nateoak10 is right look for the Thunder or the Warriors to be a playoff contender.
Your right i forgot Miami, ill slide em in at 6, if they get boozer and/or odom they go up to 4.
I didnt forget Detroit...
If you ignore the name Clippers and just look at the roster, why wouldnt they be a playoff team.
Baron, Gordon, Richardson, R. Davis, Thornton, Griffin, Camby, Kaman...i mean their kinda deep. Misperception is their young, but only gordon and griffin are. Thornton is a 3rd yr player who is already 26.
Utah is the team that slides out imo. In the west it HAS to happen w/ so many teams, but losing boozer for (reportedly) udonis haslem and dorel wright? backwards move
