Should be between Orlando and Toronto. If JO's healthy, I think Toronto will take it or else Orlando will get it.

Magic will only be better this year than last, don't see how they wouldn't take 3rd.

I just can't stop myself from going with the Cleveland Cavs here. With LeBron James your going to win quite a few games, but now that they have brought in Maurice Williams to play beside him, I think they will win quite a few more. The problem that I had with the Cavs before the trade for Williams was made was that everything was going to be laid on LeBron's shoulders yet again. Now they have many players that can help James put the ball in the basket. Not only does Williams score well, but he also knows how to be a pure point guard which is something that the Cavs did not have on their roster outside of the injured Eric Snow last season. Another thing they brought in with him is another leader for the team. With the other players that they have on their roster such as Gibson and Sczcerbiak, they have some shooters from the outside. If they can get Delonte West signed then they have a guy that can hit shots from the outside as well as finish at the rim. Along with the outside shooters they have the inside bangers. With both Varejao and Wallace you have great scrappy defenders and rebounders as well as some veteran experience and a couple rings with Wallace. This team looks like they have every need filled and they looked poised to make a run at the Finals this year.

I went with Orlando....They were a 3 seed last year and got better..Gotta be the MAGIC here.

4 and 5 to me is a toss up between the 76ers and The Cavs.

Why not between the 76ers too?

I take the Magic here. D12 is so dominate and they have alot of solid role players.

Philly, Cleveland, Washington, and Toronto could all end up from #4-#7 (well maybe not Washington at #4) and I wouldn't be suprised

if the raps were 4-5 seed with Rasho and TJ, why would they not be 3rd with Jose and JO? I understand that other teams have also gotten better, but JO rested his knee last year when he could have played. It's not like his body is getting injured all over the place, its only his knee which has bothered him for a while. Now he says he's in the type of shape he was in early in his career and the knee is doing great. If he really is healthy and Calderon continues his play like he did while TJ was out Raps will be 3rd seed.

They essentially have the same team around them, two forces down low, a point guard who controls the ball and does not turn it over with shooters scattered all around. A very well-constructed team.

Of course though, Lebron could carry Cleveland to the 3 seed as well, Orlando should contend for it too.

i guess you could make your own argument but you can't use mine to say that the Raps are 7th best in the east. JO brings the only things that they really lacked last year: toughness, shot-blocking, rebounding and the intimidation factor. If he's injured, we're essentially left with the same team as last year: Bargnani starting minus Rasho, and no Delfino either (oh no :rolleyes:). THAT team may finish 7th, but if JO is as healthy as he says he is this team finishes 3rd.

Mark my words, if JO plays over 65 games then this team finishes top 3.

I voted for Orlando, but the Cavs, Raps, Wiz, and Sixers could all get that seed. Depends on a lot of things, injuries, if players play up to their potential. But how come Chicago has 2 votes and NY has one. Both of them will be bottom feeders.

i wont mark your words, ill just watch next season play out. if raptors get top 3 seed, hell, i was wrong and stupid. i just think they wont get any better seed than 6 which they had lat year. let J.O play all 82 games for you guys. i still like Boston, Detroit, Orlando, Cleveland, Philly and Washington better than the raps. I just cannot wait for the season to start

Definitely the Magic. Howard will improve, and most importantly, Jameer Nelson will improve. Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis will still be huge offensive impact players, and the addition of Mickael Pietrus will make this team a lot better.
