Every year there is at least one team that comes from a succesfull season and a run in the playoffs and everybody is thinking of them as a lock for Playoffs and even contenders but, for no apparent reason starts to suck and does not make the playoffs, example last year Bulls and two years ago Heat.

Then you have the oppositte, teams that seem lottery bound and come out of nowhere and get to the playoffs, like Warriors two years ago or Sixers this year.

Who are your candidates on each conference to be the Overachievers and Underachievers of the season?.



West:

Overachieve, Memphis Grabbing an 8th seed.

Underachieve, Suns Not making the Playoffs.

East:

Overachieve, Bucks Making it into the Playoffs .

Underachieve, Raptors falling out of the Playoffs.

Rudy over Roy, in just one year? i doubt it.

Calderon needed two years to overcome Tj Ford and his hype, and he only managed to do it because he injured, if not they would still be splitting Minutes.

But............................Rudy's awesome! and I don't like Roy b/c he took
D-Will/K-Mart's spot in the All-Star game.

Over: Raymond Felton Puts up 15 and 11

Under: Shaq passes out in a game!!!

I know he is, ( I wouldnt go as far to say he is now better than Roy, but he may become).

But you have to count he is a foreigner, so fans judge him harder.

And Mcmillan is a real Question about foreigners, he has spoiled Sergio Rodriguezs Career.

Rudy has to be carefull with Bayless too, he might find himself in the same postion sergio is.

Roy is not losing any spot to Rudy. Fernandez can't score any better than Roy, and definitely can't distribute the ball like Roy. Besides, teams need to have a second unit, which is where Rudy belongs; it's called balance. Why don't you let him play in an NBA game before completely overrating him.

See thats what Claw was talking about foreigners in the league, they get no respect.

He put 22 on team usa Dunking on Howards face and draining threes in font of D specialist Prince or Lberon james and yet " he cant score like Roy".

Pretty much the crap that Calderon had to face in toronto.

Oh and Calderon heard a lot of the , Teams have to have a second unit crap tooo

Teams that could surprise and do playoffs.

West.... None tehre are already 11 teams who can maker them so the others have no choice.

East Nets ( people underate them) Bucks or Bobcats.

Teams tha tcould unexpectedly suck:

West since everyone expectes dallas denver and phoneix to suck i will go with CLippers who i think people is overrating.

East: Raptors and Wizzards.
