Everyone is under-rating Orlando. Orlando has to be 1.

Again...I'm being a mega-anti-homer. But I picked Cleveland. They dominated the regular season last year...and got significantly better this off-season. I don't see why they wont do it again. I think the Magic are better built for a playoff series than the long haul of a regular season.

Boston, Orlando & Cleveland will be toggling back and fourth for that #1 spot but inevitably I feel that Boston will end up with it... while Orlando will be a very close #2 and Cleveland coming in a close #3 after that the East is up for grabs from the #4-#8 spot

#3 - #8 are up for grabs.

I'll signature bet anyone that one of Boston, Orlando and Cleveland does not finish in the top 3.

Orlando wasn't a bad regular season team either, until they lost Jameer Nelson, but Cleveland were practically unbeatable at home court, if they continue their last seasons great games on home court, then they'll be #2, maybe even #1

Surprised everyone is picking ORL even though Lewis will miss the first 10 games.

Regardless of how this one ends, I'd say skip the #3 seed and just go straight to 4, for obvious reasons.

Their is logic. This thread has messed up already becuase it's an ANTI LeBron thread. 66 wins last season, 40 home wins and they improved their weaknesses with the moves they made. Simple tings, they get better. :clap:

I think you meand 4 through 8 as 1CLE, 2ORL, 3BOS...I would say 4WAS on paper with Flip Saunders is much higher than the other East teams and should be considered a top 4 team in the East and should compete with the Wins of the top 3.

I'll take that bet :D

A few thoughts on what you said. I don't see Cleveland dominating as easy this year as they did last year. Orlando, LA, San Antonio, Boston, Dallas, as well as many other teams have gotten alot better this year compared to last. I don't see Cleveland blowing through gamesthis year. Matter of fact I don't see any team blowing through games with as many stacked teams as there are.


Plus its tough for me to say Cleveland will be the best when they aren't that deep. An injury could really set them back, whereas alot of the other teams I mentioned above can afford to lose somone because they have the proper depth to fit in where needed.

Also don't forget Orlando was 36-11 before Jameer Nelson went down. If healthy they could of very well had the best record in the East. I do agree that the Magic are built for the playoffs moreso than most teams.

This isn't an anti Lebron thread. Your homerism isn't looking at it from all sides.

Yes Cleveland had the best record but really didn't have any major injuries last year. Orlando lost their all star point guard for half the year. Boston lost their all star PF as well. Yet both teams were challenging Cleveland for the #1 spot. Granted injuries are part of the game but it's def no lock Cleveland will have the #1 spot again.

Heres their first 10 games

Philadelphia
New Jersey
Tornoto
Detroit
Phenix
Detroit
Oklahoma City
Charlotte
Cleveland
New Jersey

Outside of Cleveland the rest should be wins. No team on that list would be the favorites against the Magic. With Orlandos depth with Ryan Anderson, Gortat & Bass in the front court. Missing Lewis shouldn't hurt the team to bad.

To me a worst case scenario would be them going 7-3.

The Cavs won 66 games last season and certainly didn't get worse over the off-season. So why does everyone think they will not do good?

Well some people (including me) have doubts as to how well Shaq and LeBron will mesh.

Someone (I can't remember who) also brought up the good point that Cleveland stayed relatively injury free last season, whilst Boston and Orlando fought through injuries to Kevin Garnett and Jameer Nelson.

Because their main competition also got vastly better as well.

don't doubt Orlando, they beat Cleveland last year without Jameer and now they got Vince. I can't wait to see him play with Dwight.
