The only teams that defeated the Cavaliers in the playoffs are the last 2 NBA Championship teams the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, and the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Round.

You are high on pcp if you think the Clippers will be outplayed by Atlanta, Milwakee, Chicago, Golden State, and Miami.

lol, i'm kidding.

...no but really?


And how the HELL do you figure Dallas finish as a top 5 team. That would imply some huge trade shakeup, because with that roster in today's league, they ain't finishing a seed higher than 6th....at least not in My opinion of course.

^^ Two seasons ago one of those teams weren't even in the playoffs and two years ago the Sun's were actually better b/c they didn't get swept by the Spurs.

BTW

Suns: 61-21

Cavs: 50-32

and the best 2 records came out of the West that year.

what cavs you mean lebron because whole cavs team are joke

...And who are you too say the Cavs suck? Wow you have three guys who are way past their primes, and are nothing now (Steve Nash, Boris Diaw, Grant Hill). Your entire team now is Amare Stoudamire and the last I checked LeBron is better than Amare. So would you rather have your entire team be LeBron or Amare? LeBron. LeBron has Daniel "Boobie" Gibson (Top 5 three shooter), Mo Williams (1 of 6 players that averages 17 ppg, 6apg, and 3.5 rpg {LeBron does this too}), Zydruans Ilgauskas (one of the best offensive rebounders in the NBA and one of the best at getting second chance points), Delonte West (Very Underrated, best part of the trade in Febuary), and Last Ben Wallace (Everyone might think that he is washed up, but he still plays GREAT interior Defense and he hussles).

So what I am saying here is that the Cavs are better than the Suns.

How in the world is everybody putting the Rockets so high when Yao and Mcgrady are gonna miss half the season as usual, Yao still isn't 100 percent from what we saw in the Olympics I just don't trust them, they have to show me a whole season of being healthy.

The Mavs are a team that is hard to get a read on at the moment. They could be good as they have been in 2006 and 2007 or they could fall off and be a borderline playoff team. A lot depends on Josh Howard and Jason Kidd.

If you guys still had Devin Harris instead of Jason Kidd you would be so much bettter.
