The Lakers not in the top 10 (they should be #1 or possibly #2)?

The Suns #2 (they barely were above .500 with Shaq)?

The Mavs in front of the Rockets?

bulls over heat?

I don't think that is too outrageous. Will it happen? anyone's best guess - both teams had a bad year last year and will improve this coming season.

And Denver over Portland could easily happen, Portland hasn't proved anything yet and are still very young.

The leaving Lakers out is just ********. Anyone feel like closing the thread?

Finally: Sigh - it's a Raptors fan again there has been far too many dumb thread from raptors fans in the past couple weeks, gives the rest of us a terrible rep, ah well.

If the lakers don't take the 1 spot they will be 2. The hornets are the only team that could challenge them for the 1. Yeah, the lost in the finals but they were IN the finals. If the odom/artest deal ever becomes real they will be a solid number 1 pick. I love odom but they have enough flash, we need D.

Its not crazy at all... Going into last off season noone would have ever imagined that the Lakers and hornets would be 1 and 2 in the western conference... Who would have thought that the hawks would give the Celtics a better match up then the Lakers did. Let this guy put what he wants because right now his opinion could be more realistic then you think. Injuries happen and teams do fall a part.

If Denver doesn't quickly find a decent replacement for Camby they are not going to make the postseason. They stunk defensively WITH Camby as last line of defense..without a defensive big they might be giving up 120 ppg this year lol.

lakers have the best player today and the best coach of all-time plus there young. so i am assuring them the number one pick quote me on that. plus i still think the jazz and spurs are better than the hornets all the hornets have are paul, chandler and west, spurs have duncan, parker, and ginobli. jazz have boozer, williams and kirelinko even with the hornets. lakers have kobe, odom, gasol, bynum( all-star next year mark my words i don't care how much i'm hyping on him) and farmar( will surprise alot of people.) plus the hornets have no bench just posey and please don't tell me peja is good cuz hes only a good 3 point shooter and thats it.

Aside from my angry comments, Mavs over Rockets? No way. Lakers are top 3 without question....

After giving away Camby, the Nuggets will be battling Sacramento for 10th place. That was a terrible trade for you (competition-wise). Despite having two great scorers in AI and Melo, Denver is going to be a terrible team because they have NO DEFENSE. AI and Melo can both score 30 ppg and that team would not be a .500 team because they will give up 120ppg as a team.

No way the rockets are third. they overachieved last season. they had no business being in the playoffs without yao, while a good team like golden state watched. with yao they are a playoff team, but not number 3.

Here is my list (assuming each team is healthy):
West:
1. LA Lakers
2. NO Hornets
3. Utah Jazz
4. SA Spurs
5. Houston Rockets
6. Phoenix Suns
7. Portland Trailblazers
8. Dallas Mavericks
9. LA Clippers

9. Atlanta Hawks
10. Milwaukee Bucks
11. Miami Heat
12. New Jersey Nets
13. Indiana Pacers
14. NY Knicks
15. Charlotte Bobcats

Notes:
- huge drop-off after the top seven seeds out west, with the Mavs, Clippers, Warriors and Nuggets fighting it out.
- The Pistons will finally have a let-down.
- The Cavaliers will be better in the post-season than the regular.
- The Bulls will be better than the heat (I am amazed this is debatable).
- The Celtic's will be the new Pistons (win games, real boring to watch).
- I really hope the TrailBlazers are even better than 7th out West.

West:
1. Hornets
2. Rockets
3. Spurs
4. Lakers
5. Jazz
6. Mavs
7. Nuggets
8. Blazers

I am not adding Suns because Shaq will sleep 3/4 of the season again, by the time he wakes up, he will be traded or already a lottery team.

East:
1. Celtics
2. Sixers
3. Raptors
4. Cavs
5. Magic
6. Heat
7. Bucks
8. Pistons (they are starting to have chemistry probs and could miss out on play-offs)

Washington/Atl/Bulls will stink up the East next season. Why? Arenas big mouth/lacks team play and inconsistent play, ATL will lose some key players aka Smith and Childress, Bulls? too high on Deng......nuf said.

The Knicks can pull a suprise with their Run/gun new coach.

07-23-2008, 10:52 AM
Those who are not picking the Heat have a point, as long as Blount is the starting center, it is tough to pick Miami. They also have to remember that J-will/Ricky Davis is gone, which gives heat fans a reason to be optimistic.

First off, im not a blazer fan at all.

Second, you gave away half of your defense in Camby. Portland is getting better. They have Oden, Jerryd Bayless, Rudy Fernandez and possibly Koponen added to their roster. Denver is falling and doesnt even know where they want to head theirselves. They dont know if they want to keep Anthony, Iverson, Kmart, or Nene. Your team is messed up. They outta there and tha truth hurts.

Changed your mind already huh? Bynum being compared to shaq is crazy but the reason that happened is because he improved BIG TIME in one season, he has the skills to become great, just needs to develop it now. Ariza is a solid bench player also, a slasher and a good defender who hustles.

Wait who is better defensively Tyson Chandler or Pau Gasol? Tyson
Wait who is better offensively David West or Bynum? David West
What makes the Lakers bench so great? Please someone tell me...
Farmar< Pargo- I have never seen Farmar score 30 in a game, he may have but i doubt it.
Sasha(most likely wont be there next season)<Posey(or Peterson)
Julian Wright>= Ariza( I havent seen Ariza play but Julian Wright showed some signs in around the end of the season.)
Melvin Ely vs Uncontested
Mihm> Armstrong
You Laker and Spur fans are right I see a great bench there...
Starting lineups you say?

Paul>>>> Fisher
Posey(Peterson)<<<<<<<Kobe
Peja=Odom(too inconsistent)
West= Gasol( He is too overrated, his defense isn't all that, and versing West Gasols offense is out matched.)
Chandler=< Bynum( He might not be the same as last year with that injury)

I would say these teams are evenly matched and both are in line to win a championship. But injuries can and will happen. And Spurhead don't make me rip the Spurs.... defintley won't beat us this year. Horry Barry and TD are older then the whole Hornets squad.

Julian Wright>= Ariza( I havent seen Ariza play but Julian Wright showed some signs in around the end of the season.)
Melvin Ely vs Uncontested
Mihm> Armstrong
You Laker and Spur fans are right I see a great bench there...
Starting lineups you say?

Paul>>>> Fisher
Posey(Peterson)<<<<<<<Kobe
Peja=Odom(too inconsistent)
West= Gasol( He is too overrated, his defense isn't all that, and versing West Gasols offense is out matched.)
Chandler=< Bynum( He might not be the same as last year with that injury)

I would say these teams are evenly matched and both are in line to win a championship. But injuries can and will happen. And Spurhead don't make me rip the Spurs.... defintley won't beat us this year. Horry Barry and TD are older then the whole Hornets squad.

Peja = Odom? youre crazy...anyone would take an inside scorer rather than a one dimensional jump shooter. Odom runs the break at 6'10'' peja cant even drive it in. Odoms average - 15 pts, 0.9 steals, 1 block, 4 assists, 9 rebounds. Peja's average - 18 pts, 0.1 block, 1 steal, 1 assist, 5 rebounds. Think someone would be crazy to take Peja. West = Gasol is probably right.

Bynum is way better than Chandler on offense since most of Chandlers points are fed to him. Defensively, I think Bynum is still better because of his quick foot work.

Now the bench...

Farmar's been in the league for 2 years and Pargo for 6. Their career averages are pretty much the same. Farmars career high is 24 which yeah is lower, but id say thats pretty impressive for a second year bench player. Even if Sasha says Posey is better than him. Ariza you havent seen play yet you judge his game. His stats dont show how effective he is because hes a defender who hustles a lot.

Barry isn't even on the Spurs anymore and Horry will most likely retire.

Horry is probably retiring but the Spurs resigned Barry if im not mistaken, i will check and give you the link to where he is at.

Ariza is a defender who hustles alot? Ryan Bowen hustled alot and you dont see me calling him good. And no Bynum right now isn't better then Chandler defensively its close but not yet. Peja doesn't have to post up because he can shoot a three Odom can't... Odom statline is good but since you guys don't got a true point guard he has to be it. Wait back to Chandler even ESPN people said he was quicker going down the quart then any other Center, how can you say his offense is bad.... he never gets the oppurtunity to play it. As i said before Farmar is good, but right now i would give it to pargo.

Take out Paul and Kobe.....
PG. Fisher or Pargo
SG. Posey or Sasha(likely to leave)
SF. Peja or Odom- odom fits right with lakers but peja fits well with hornets, w/o odom theres no one to run point and pass to kobe. and w/o peja we got one other 3 point starter but thats it.
PF. West or Gasol- even
C. Chandler or Bynum id give bynum the nod but microfracture surgery can be really bad.

You cant judge Ariza because you even said youve never seen him play, so why do you keep making it sound like hes bad? Apparently you cant even remember what you say, just like you mentioned how Sasha is a poor mans Peja then a few posts later said you never said Peja is better. Make up your mind kid. Chandlers offense is not as good as Bynums because most of his points are lobs/putbacks.

It's definitely a bait thread..lol...this a kind of thread that we jump on to coz of a very un balanced opinion the thread starter makes... but we can't blaim him if he truly believes it will happen...
I hope theirs a rule in PSD that you can make a bet... then if you're truly stands on you're opinion you can bet on someone not to post again or be ban even for a while when he lost..lol....:smoking::smoking:
