i agree with Knicks, Heat, Bulls, Thunder, Clippers. Knicks will be a dogfight unless paul pierce is out. the celts won't have anyone to stop anthony and they won't have anyone to stop chandler, if the knicks can contain the celts backcourt they will win easy. heat are going to have a field day and the mavs won't bode well without center tyson chandler. lebron is going to be scary this year and the heat already have the chemistry to come out of the gates running, same with OKC. young healthy and they made no offseason moves. their chemistry is already set and will have a huge advantage over every team but the bulls, who will beat LA. With the Kobe injury, the lack of Odom and the team getting used to a whole new offense in a few weeks will be too much to get past the bulls. Clipps are going to wreck the warriors. yah its gonna take them time to mesh but considering the warriors haven't meshed yet either makes it a game of talent, and the clipps have them by far. Merry Christmas Basketball Fans! I think we all got just what we wanted.

Warriors.. come on guys.. it's gonna take a lil time for them to mesh... I'm not taking preseason wins vs the broken down Lakers too seriously. lol

Warriors are gonna be without Curry in the opening game, huge loss. And in the Clippers/Warriors scenario we can't exploit Chauncey as the undersized "2 guard" that he now is with Monta also being undersized (it will be an issue on many nights for them though). Doubt we take it.

I'll go Knicks (no Pierce, and the C's are at a major disadvantage with no Perkins/Baby and now Jeff Green from a depth perspective. This will not be a good year for them), Heat, Bulls, Thunder for the other matchups.

Merry X-Mas fellas, CANNOT WAIT to get these games going! Been too long without ball.

Can always say until Baron comes back you really don't have a PG but, it is kind of important the C's have one of their best players out. PP IMO is allot more important then all of the guys out there not named Rondo.

What's the obsession with Shumpert? All I see is an overmatched, turnover-prone, trigger-happy, ballhog who doesn't understand that he has an All-World player in Melo on the court that (A) takes shots as the clock expires better than anyone on the planet and (B) should dominate the ball.

And his defense is subpar. I've seen him blow 3 assignments. What's the deal? Am I missing something?

What's the obsession with Shumpert? All I see is an overmatched, turnover-prone, trigger-happy, ballhog who doesn't understand that he has an All-World player in Melo on the court that (A) takes shots as the clock expires better than anyone on the planet and (B) should dominate the ball.

And his defense is subpar. I've seen him blow 3 assignments. What's the deal? Am I missing something?

he's a 20 yr old rookie dude, relax. He can play but of course he's going to make alot of mistakes.

Oh no, I agree. But he wasn't heralded out of college, he lacked the basketball IQ and the offensive skills at Georgia Tech and it's showing in this game. But I feel like reading this thread you would think he's the best player on the floor and he's clearly not. He's fallen into the same chucking nonsense he did in college.

Shumpert is hurting the Knicks more than he's helping.

Are we watching the same game? I've seen 4 mid-range floaters from Shumpert so far caused by him failing to go to his left off the dribble. Teams are forcing him to go to his left, he makes a jab step to his right and throws up a contested floater that bounces off the rim.

He doesn't get to the rack at will. There are a handful of players in the league that can. He's not one of them.

I don't think saying the Knicks can compete with any team in a 7 game series is getting carried away at all when you have plenty of "expert" analysts predicting as a top 3-4 team in the conference and many sending us to the ECF.

Our only true weakness is PG play but that's covered up by having two of the best Iso scorers in the league. Plus we have a true PG on injured reserve right now who could easily come back and run this offense.

I don't understand the Bibby signing. I would think a back court of Davs, Douglas, Shumpert and Fields could get by just fine.

Bibby was 5th in the NBA in 3pt percentage last season. Perfect floor spacer with experience to come off the bench and hit a shot. We signed him before we had Baron Davis. With only Douglas (more a combo guard than a 1) and Shumpert (also more of a combo guard), we had no one who could run an offense. Fields is a 2/3. We needed a true PG and Bibby fit the bill. Now that we have Baron Davis he might become extra but that's not for another month and a half. A lot of people don't like the signing because he was horrific in the playoffs last season for the Heat but for the vet min, I liked it a lot. No risk.
