After Cavs getting Bynum, I can see them going at 7. (Pretty much same roster with addition of Bynum and Athony Bennet)
Now the 8th seed:
Sixers and Magic are clearly out of race. Since Celtics are keeping Rondo, I don't think they are going full tank mode just yet. probably fight between Raps, Pistons, Celtics, Bucks, Wizard, even Bobcats.
I see another year of 9th seed behind Pistons. Thoughts??
