We're getting him back, it's as clear as day. He's getting bought out this week and he'll definitely return to the city he loves...

You just wanted an excuse to put your Magic above the Cavs...

No I'd put them above the Cavs anyways, I'd just put the Cavs ahead of Denver.

Big Z makes them better, but I still don't think they beat the Lakers or Magic in a 7-games series. I do think it'll be one hell of a battle though, I'm really looking forward to it... I'm excited lol.

1. Lakers (team to beat)
2. Orlando (reigning EC champs)
3. Mavericks (They seem to have all there holes filled after the trade and seem to be gelling well)
4. Cleveland (Something seems to be off with them lately)
5. Denver (i think there a piece away from being in top 3)
8. Atlanta (They will be a darkhorse come playoff time expect upsets)
7. Boston (they've fallen but if they save enough gas for the playoffs still dangerous just cant have to many long series)
8. Utah (dont expect them to get too far but there recent success earns them the last spot)

2. Orlando
3. Denver
4. Cleveland (without Big Z)
5. Boston

I was scared to look at this thread. It is frustrating the Spurs are at the bottom of these list, if on them at all. Sadly, that is prob accurate. However, you never know in the playoffs...

(fingers crossed)

I'd put Hawks instead of Thunder. Their players don't have experience so I won't consider them as Contenders.

Lakers shouldn't even be on the list. THEY ARE NOT CONTENDERS trying to win a title.....


They are the defending NBA CHAMPS! They're trying to keep the trophy where it is RIGHT NOW. plain and simple.

You're probably right, but the only thing I can argue against that is:

Did anyone really expect them to be 12 games over .500 and just 3 games out of the 2 seed in the extremely difficult West?

You never know what can happen.

Just sayin'...
