Fact: Amare can lead a team to the playoff in the east. A very low spot 8, but he can.
Not saying they can't be higher but if Amare is the Main contributor I think it will be a low spot.


Fact or Fiction: Al Jefferson has a beast season in Utah with D-will feeding him?

Fact or Fiction: Cleveland makes the playoffs.

Fact: I think they are good enough to sneak in esp in the east where 37 wins is all you need. They will surprise people just like how the rockets without Yao won 42 games.

Fact or Fiction: Bosh will have a surprising year and stand out in Miami and in that process solidify him as a superstar?

Fact. With Lebron and Wade probably out of the mix at about 25-27 a piece, it makes it that much easier. He'll average somewhere around ~30 again, edging 'Melo.

Fact or Fiction: Dwight Howard will not lead the league in blocks next season, or ever again.

Fact or Fiction: Dwight Howard will not lead the league in blocks next season, or ever again.

Fiction: Dwight's entering his prime, and no one else in the league is as good as him at blocking shots. By a big margin.

Fact or Fiction: The worst team, record-wise, will be in the Eastern Conference next season.

He's never even averaged 3 blocks a game in a season, though. Before him leading in blocks the last two seasons with 2.8 and 2.9, you would have to go back a LONG time to find a season where < 3blks was good enough to lead the league. I have a feeling somebody (most likely multiple players) will step up and average > 3 going forward, so we'll see if he can step it up as well.

Yes, the worst record will be in the Eastern Conference.

Fact or Fiction: That worst record will belong to the Cavs.

fact: the thunder are younger and hungrier. they are more explosive and i feel they learned a lot from their one playoff series. though the Mavs are more polished in terms of the Playoffs, they will not be better than the Thunder.

Fact or Fiction: the Bulls are essentially a lite version of the Utah Jazz (from a year or two ago), but will look better because they are in the east.

totally fiction.
well john wall may be an allstar tbd...doubtful to me though, still alot of young talented guards out east.
but as for them jumping from 2nd last to past the hawks(who are a 3rd seed) and the bobcats(who also made the playoffs) just seems ludicrous to me. the hawks aren't going anywhere they are a top 4 team in the east. and the bobcats and larry brown are just getting started i think. they won most of their games in a late push last year.
