I think that atlanta upgraded by bringing everone back and adding crawford.

also i think chicago loseing gordon and with out replacing him will really prove to be a bad move. brad miller, and john solmons are not saviours.

washingtong and detroit are wild cards for me...

and the bucks... well the poor bucks dont know if they are competing or rebuilding, alot confusion going on there letting good players go for basically nothing.

Well i beg 2 differ even dough da bulls lost gordon and his cluth shots, he also turned da ball over alot. Im a huge Gordon fan but i think da bulls are going 2 be better than people think Noah, Rose are going 2 be better were going to have Salmon,Miller, and Kirk for a full seson barring injuries. James Johnson is going 2 be a stud, Taji Gibson going 2 help hes a smarter less athletic Tyrus Thomas. Tyrus hopeful has a breakout year. And Pargo going 2 help 2. Da Bulls at best will be between da 5 and 8 seed in da playoffs.

me personally im a raps fan. BUT. I really like the bulls team. I think D rose will be one of the best point gaurds in the leauge along with paul and d will.

Watching the playoffs i was routing for the bulls to win over boston in that historic match up of 8 over times in a 7 game series.

but i also know that ben gordon was the leading scorer, and his 40 point performances in the play offs will be missed in that line up ... i dont think chicago is gonna be as good as last year. also now that bens gone, defences are going to double up on rose which is gonna be tuff for him in his sophmore year. and i dont think salmons can carry the load the way gordon did. like i said i like the bulls. d roze and noah are a pair of my favourit yonge talents in the league along with durant, granger, and mayo.. i just think chicagos management screwed up letting gordon go with out replacing him ... but we will see.

also i think pargo is a good adition.

shieettt, i forgot about philie... another wild card.

if iggy, and brand can find a way to co-exist they can finish as high as 5-6th i think, but brand excells in a half cour offense where iggy excells in a run and gun type set up. both solid players, brand i hear is healthy and ready to go, if they find a way to make that team gel, they can be really good. losing miller hurts them a bit he was a solid pg for the 76ers.

since agent zero is back healthy, acquired a 20 5 5 guy and excellent shooter in mike miller, and young stud randy foye for a draft pick and guys who they wouldn't play.

arenas-mike miller/foye-butler-jamison-haywood

that's really good and really experienced and much more defense than what the nets have. id say det might surprise a few people and make the playoffs.

Agreed. Barring injury, you can't bet on anyone else.

We have 3 guys who would start on most teams coming off the bench: Davis, Sheed, and Daniels. There isn't a better bench (or starting line-up) in the NBA. Remember, they were only 4 games behind the Cavs for best record last year, and that's with Garnett and Powe out half the year, and Big Baby starting, leaving virtually no bench.

Delonte West's arrest will have some impact on the Cavs (he's surely going to be suspended for some games), and the Magic will not gel that quickly to come up with the best record. I think they will finish higher than the Cavs.

maybe not but he was a better than whats there without him.gordon wasnt a popular amongst many(myself included),but they downgraded the position by not getting a better or similar replacement.as well bulls have question marks the pf position as always,can deng stay healthy and if so how will he preform

I can't say I'm THAT surprised to see a lot of you guys not picking the Bulls to make the playoffs, but I'll just say the whole lot of you are really underestimating how good Derrick Rose is going to be and are in for a real surprise. Also a lot of you are either forgetting or underestimating what a healthy Luol Deng will mean to this team. Oh well...just predictions. Can't blame ya too much.

If I'm NJ...I tank this season in a heartbeat. One more top 3 pick, and they might be a contender. If they get LeBron, it's game over. If LeBron was on this years Nets team, they'd be the favorite IMO. Let alone having a top 3 pick....

The Magic are the best we are Number 1. Yeah it was fluke when we killed The Cavs, and Boston. Man get out with that, where have you been, I think we are the Eastern Conference Champs. A fluke is when LBJ made that three pointer in Game 2. A fluke is when Big Baby made that jumper in Game 6. Magic haters are gonna hate more when we become 2010 NBA Champions.

Exactly, we had atleast one game wining shot against us in all our playoff rounds. Thats what you call crap. And we dominated Cleveland all year last year, we cause so many match-up problems. Doesnt sound like a fluke to me.

A fluke is KG out for the playoffs. A fluke is Leon Powe also out, leaving Big Baby starting and zero bench help. A fluke is Ray and Paul playing tons of minutes in the Chicago series because they have no relief off the bench. A fluke is after all that we still took you to 7.

Trust me Magic fans, this year will be no fluke with Boston. We will have KG, and we will have a bench: Sheed, Daniels, Big Baby.
