Eastern Conference

1. Cavs
2. Magic
3. Boston
4. Atlanta
5. Chicago
6. Miami
7. Wizards
8. Milwuakee


This is going to be REALLY interesting because you had a lot of teams this year that didn't play well, but will probably bounce back next year.

Teams like Washington, Toronto, Indiana, Bucks, New Jersey, Charlotte, Phili...it's going to be interesting to say the least I cant wait.

I think with Redd and Bogut coming back healthy and Skiles being a good coach that he is, that the Bucks will get the 8th seed. With Agent Zero coming back, i think the other big 3 will get the 7th seed. They might even get Blake Griffin.

I can't believe no love was shown for the Cats.
If they had the team they have now, all year this season, they'd likely be a 5 or 6 seed this season.

The East will be a lot better next season though.

I still think the Heat will be higher than Chicago next year and the Wiz won't make it.
The Bucks need to be healthy all year to have a chance.
If Granger doesn't get hurt, then the Pacers are right there too.

I think Atlanta is going to get bumped below Chicago, Miami and even Washington if they grab Blake and are healthy next year.

I forgot about the Bobcats. The Pacers also have a really legit chance to be really good.

Bottom line is that every team in the East is improving which makes next year's playoff seedings very interesting

It's a little to early to tell but my picks: Cavs, Celtics, Magic, Hawks, Heat, Bulls, Wizards, Bobcats or 76ers

My predictions: I won't be surprised if the Celtics fall to the 5th or 6th seed next year due to the big 3's age. The Wiz will make the playoffs if they stay healthy. Charlotte will slip into the 8th playoff spot next year if Elton Brand doesn't return to his usual form.

So many things wrong with this............

DRAFT??? FREE AGENCY??? TRADES???

Most teams in the NBA will be significantly different than they are now. Any opinion is based off what you saw this season and obviously that usually doesn't carry over into the next year consistently.

I like the zeal of this thread, however how about we allow the NBA Lottery, NBA Draft and Opt Out contracts happen first before we decide on how good any of these teams will be?
