We already know this. JordansBulls posted the same thread but with both confrences. Look at threads before you post new ones because you might post something already posted. Might as well close this thread.

I more or less agree with your top 5, but how could you possibly figure that Portland, Dallas and especially Denver would finish above Phoenix? I can't wait for Phoenix to surprise all you haters out there... we've improved our lineup by adding so many valuable role players (Dragic, Barnes, RoLo, Amundson, Singletary) AND we've added defense. Just wait!

Well we only lost 1 more game than them last season and we've done much more than them over the off-season (all they've done is add Roger Mason) to improve our team: added several valuable role players (Dragic, Barnes, RoLo, Amundson, Singletary) AND we've added defense. Wait and see!

How can you put the Clippers two seeds ahead of the Blazers? The Blazers have two legit post presences whereas the Clips have none. Moreover, the Blazers seem to have excellent chemistry. I get the feeling that B Diddy and coach Dunleavy will butt heads constantly during the season

maybe so but This starting lineup and bench is gonna be better than people think.
1.Baron Davis
2.Eric Gordon
3.Al Thornton
4.Chris Kaman
5.Marcus Camby
bench-shaun livingston, cuttino mobley, ricky davis, jason williams,Tim thomas,quinton ross,steve novak,smush parker,deandre jordan

The Rockets will be much much better this season. Ron Artest is going to make an impact. The question is whether the guys can stay healthy. T-Mac is always one hard foul away from a season ending injury as is Yao.

they waived Livingston. Mobley, Davis, Williams, Thomas, and Jordan all suck. Bad. I love Thornton, but their front line sucks offensivley. Davis will not get along with the structured Dunleavy. The Clippers are in for a long season as usual.

I have to agree to be honest. Re-signing Livingston will be important for their 2nd half of the season.

Rockets will be #1 in the West next season. A couple teams might be within a few games of the top spot, but no doubt Rox #1.

The Spurs are the only other team in the West that can compare defensively.

ROCKETS will be first because their defense and offense will both be in the top five in the NBA this year. they also have an easy first game against the grizzlies to get them going.
