We are about 1/4 the way through the season, which i think is enough to tell which teams were getting lucky (A.K.A MIlwaukee, Sacremento) and which teams are the real deal suprise teams (A.K.A Houston, Oklahoma City)...

I am wondering what everyone believes the rest of the season will play out as...

PLEASE NO HOMER PICKS!!!

lets make this realistic...

I want to see a playoff picture...can do a just missed if you want...

DO IT LIKE THIS:

WEST:

1. Lakers
2. Dallas
3. Denver
4. Phoenix
5. Houston
6. San Antonio
7. Utah
8. OKC

*YES, i think the Oden-less, Fernandez-less Blazers will miss the playoffs*

EAST:

1. Celtics
2. Magic
3. Cleveland
4. Atlanta
5. Miami
6. Detroit
7. Charlette
8. Toronto

Man, if portland doesnt make the playoffs im going to be so pissed off haha. I wonder if they would get a good draft pick if they dont finish in the top 8 off the west

I also think toronto will drop down a bit when they get Evans back and brings some toughness to this weak team. I see them like 7 or 6 depending on injuries and all that stuff

i mean, dont get me wrong, Portland could very easily still make it...

I just feel like this team has lost two very key pieces and its going to hurt them...

Since Oden has been out Portland has lost to the Knicks, and squeeked through a victory over the Pacers (A Pacer team with an injured Danny Granger), they have just looked really weak...

anyone who doesnt have the Raptors in their top 8 should smack themselves...they've played more games then anyone else in the East, have had a ton of back to backs, and the second toughest schedule to start the season; their record isnt indicative of where they will end up
