    Probably too early, and probably a terrible list:

    1. Los Angeles Clippers
    2. Oklahoma Thunder
    3. San Antonio Spurs
    4. Houston Rockets
    5. Golden St Warriors
    6. Memphis Grizzlies
    7. Denver Nuggets
    8. Los Angeles Lakers
    9. Portland Trail Blazers
    10. Minnesota Timberwolves
    11. Dallas Mavericks
    12. New Orleans Pelicans
    13. Utah Jazz
    14. Sacramento Kings
    15. Pheonix Suns

    Disclaimer, I don't think LAC goes to the Finals, just that they win the most regular season games. I think their depth and youth makes them best suited to do so.

    while it seems like a safe bet to make, I highly doubt the same 8 teams will make the playoffs again.
    I survived Stephon Marbury's inability
    Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson era
    I survived them all leaving, a 12-70 season and not getting the #1 pick
    Mikhail Prokhorov buys the Nets
    I survived Melodrama
    Deron Williams traded here
    I survived 248 games missed due to injury, 5 d-league call-ups, 14 different lineups in ONE season, Johan Petro
    I survived Dwightmare
    I survived Avery & PJC's rotations
    THE Offseason - Success TBD

    For sure. I'd imagine one, maybe only two of those teams actually finish where I have them pegged. I'd be stunned if I got even 1/3rd of that close to correct. Crazy ****: it's gonna happen.

    Yeah it's fun to try to predict rankings but INJURIES (unfortunately) will decide a significant portion of these rankings.

    Honestly, I think Kobe coming back before January is a long shot. That can affect things quite a bit.

    Tell me what yall is
    Lakers over Memphis and Denver? Are you high?

    Memphis beat the Clippers and a Westbrook-less Thunder. Lakers wouldn't beat either of those teams with their 2013-14 roster.

    Denver lost plenty of nice pieces, but they still have youth over LA. Kobe probably won't be in full form until at least a month or two into the season. Not to mention Nash's health is also up in the air as well. This will definitely cost them a few crucial games in the beginning of the season that could affect the standings later on.

    I've posted it a couple times now, but I still feel comfortable with this list:

    1: OKC (this team is still absolutely loaded despite many doubters)

    2: LAC (should be a tight division race with GS. Solid bench pickups)

    3: GSW (main weakness is if they get hurt, but with one of the deeper benches can now afford it a bit)

    4: Memphis (Will have a tough division race with the Spurs)

    5: San Antonio (This may be low, but like KG said, I could see Duncan's minutes limited to 25. Still, a 1 seed would not be entirely shocking)

    6: Houston (Until I see a legitimate PF, some bench scoring and while Lin is still their PG, I can't be as high on HOU as some. 3-6 is what I expect, but I'm leaning 6)

    7: Denver (They're still a strong team without Iggy and I expect them to finish 2nd to OKC in the division)

    8: Minnesota (A potentially healthy season of Pek+Rubio+Love will be nice, tho' losing AK47 + a weak D is an issue)

    9: New Orleans (Young talent is big on this squad)

    10: Mavs (This is on Dirk and his health. Calderon + Monta aren't going to help you win too many more)

    11: Lakers (cringe-worthy defense. Maybe the worst)

    12: Blazers (some decent moves, could surprise)

    13+: Wiggins hunters.

    Yeah, injuries and possibly mid-season trades (looking at Houston).

    Denver is gonna be in the playoffs, I put them at the 5th, 6th seed. If Gallo can come back by December, they could have Chandler and Gallo healthy together for the first time since the trade. I think they will be a 52-53 win team. Brian Shaw has some big shoes to fill but I will be impressed if he can just keep this team together right now. I really don't know what management is doing stacking the PF position and signing Randy ****ing Foye to 3 years 9 mil but hopefully they prove me wrong.

    All the gains Denver made last year defensively have flown right out the door. They'll regress.

    I like tredigs' rankings a lot with a few small differences.

    1. Clippers
    2. OKC
    3. Golden State
    4. Houston
    5. Spurs
    6. Memphis
    7. Denver
    8. Pellies

    I underrate the Spurs every single year so if they go 3rd or 4th it wouldn't shock me in the slightest. Also have a slightly irrational liking towards the Pelicans roster. Mostly just excited to see them play, could be really fun to watch this year.
