Simple question

For Me it's Memphis and Philly. Mainly because Memphis has to deal with the west and Philly has virtually the same team from last year but are improved.

While I am not totally surprised because after all its the East we're talking about the Pacers have been a bit unexpected. I mean I honestly thought with the "improvements" made in the off season and with another year under their belt that the Bucks would have made the playoffs this season.

We suck :(. We're like the Bobcats. We're not good, and at the same time, don't have many young pieces to build around. And Jennings, to me, isn't that piece. I really don't think he'll ever get much more efficient than he is now. And right now, he is damn inefficient.

Back on topic though, definitely Memphis. With Houston, Phoenix, Utah, and an improved Golden State out west, I didn't see the Grizz in the playoffs.

Pacers... They started out hot and seemed to tank midseason. i thought they wre cooked. But they fired the coach, competed every night and took that next step.

I'm not all that surprised about Philly, although I thought they'd just miss the playoffs. Indy and Memphis I felt were underrated and aren't big surprises.

I was surprised how well LMA held Portland together without Roy, and surprised how many wins Felton and the Knicks other young guys got them through the first 3/4 of the season. I didn't think they were going to be a playoff team.

Knicks.....it's been so long since they weren't the joke of the NBA that I had to see them make the playoffs to believe it could still happen

The Pacers. I knew Memphis would do it sooner or later and Philly was expected to make some noise.

The Pacers surprised me. Didn't surprise me that my Grizz would make it this year. The owner GUARANTEED it(how did he do that??) and my boys had to fight their ***** off in the West to make it happen.

Bulls No.1 Seed...as a bulls fan in the beginning of the season i really didnt think we'd have it locked up especially with a 4 game lead on BOS and MIA, with a shot at overtaking the Spurs....but my non homer vote goes to the Grizz gettin it done even without Rudy Gay.

For me its Philly. Because I always felt as if Indiana was good enough to make it the past several years, but vastly underachieved. While I did expect Philly to be in the conversation for the 8 seed. They are probably going to get the 6 seed and could be a threat in the first round. Doug Collins really does deserve Coach of the Year award!!!!!
