Every team last place in the nba as worst case. Every team winning championship as best case.

Except that the bobcats will NEVER win the ring with their roster and the Thunder will NEVER end last.

Teams have a level that they can overachieve some and underachieve some.

so even in the sixers absolute best case scenerio they will not be able to beat the Nets/Knicks/Pacers/Bulls in the 2nd round? I disagree.

They could beat the Celtics in a 7 game series. Even Doc Rivers knows they don't have an answer for Bynum.

Sixers match up extremely well with the Celtics and if they face eachother again in the playoffs expect the home team to lose in six or win in seven.

Bynum :rolleyes:.
Lets see

1 if he decides to play every game or instead goes on taking game off in wich he doesnt care.

2 is able to learn how to face a double team.

3 is able to be effective being the "franchise" player after years of comfortable play with Kobe and Pau taking the responsability.

4 His knees hold.

Basically.

Maybe one or two of them may crap their pants and not make the west/east finals.

But the remaining ones will beat any surprise team that sneaks in conference finals.

worst list ever, the Jazz were in the playoffs and they can make it again, Bucks have a shot at the playoffs actually, the wolves only sucked without Rubio, the mavs can make the playoffs, hornets can atleast do better, AND you underrate the hell out of the Warriors & Knicks.

thats not realistic. whats realistic is that you want to impress the haters, whats realistic is that the nets wont make that much noise, whats realistic is the you might not know a spic of basketball, whats realistic is that many people are just depressing.

Being realistic doesnt mean All of them will match their realistic goal, some will underachieve and some will Overachieve.

I think the Raptors worst case Scenario is mid-lotto. Cause then, their pick (4 and below to 15 I think) would go to Houston this year lol

Yeah well, obviously from their perspectiv e actually the bst case scnerario for some teams is guetting the 1st pick, but thats not the point of this, just see where they can end :D

thy only have 1 good player, Crash is trash, JJ sucked last season, Lopez cant even rebound, and the kardashian is no way better than stoudemire:
Felton/Williams- Williams wins
JR Smith or Brewer/JJ- tie
Melo- Wallace- Melo
Stat/Kardashian- Stat
Tyson/Lopez- tyson
4/5 for the knicks.

I think you have the Rockets way too low. I'm trying not to be a homer, but do you really think the Rockets are the second worst team in the league right now? and the best scenario is bottom 5?

I think the best scenario is 9-11 seed in the West, worst scenario is last in the WEST and realistic is 13 seed in the WEST. Of course, the best scenario would actually be the worst, since I do rather the Rockets to be the last in the conference than a 10 seed and have a lower draft pick.

:eyebrow: Joe Johnson is leaps above JR Smith. Don't be blinded by his contract

More realistically the list should look like this
Felton<<<Williams
Smith<<Johnson
Melo>>Wallace
Stat>>Hump
Tyson=Lopez (Id much rather have Chandler however)

Keep in mind I hate both of these teams and this is no way to compare which team is better. But your analysis was way too biased. And while Melo and stat are both much better than wallace and hump individually, that doesn't mean jacked **** if they can't play together. Overall, i think both teams will be good, and both with the POTENTIAL to make the EC finals... but thats really a crapshoot between the Celts, Pacers, Sixers, Knicks, and Nets to go against the heat if you ask me. And the EC finals should be each of those teams best case scenarios

Funny, most outside fans, and experts, think the Nets and Knicks are going to finish around the same. Only their fan bases seem to think their team is clearly better than the other.

No.

But they have too many youngsters, and too many new pieces to adjust to playing togheter.

Fair enough. Some of you are being a bit hard on the OP, he did all 32 teams with 3 scenarios. Can't get every single one exactly right, the list is better the most the garbage I see up here. One thing that worries me about the Rockets is they seriously have nobody who can explode for 25 a night for any length of time in the slightest. They will struggle to score, so their defense will need to be tough as nails. Expect a LOT of turnovers with Lin and a bunch of 1-2nd year players getting a lot of burn.

that's why I think their best scenario can be much better than the one you thought. If two of their 4 rookies pan out, Lin and Asik play what they're expected to and Parsons continues to improve, they can be a bordeline playoff team, basically the same they have been for the last three years. Of course, thing can go the other way and they finish worst in the conference, bu even so I don't think they can go worst than Charlotte and Orlando.

that's why I only talked about the Rockets, my team.

Let's see what happens to Martin, i don't expect the Rockets to tank, but I do expect them to give the rookies and sophomores the more time they can, Martin and Lamb will probably share time at SG, with Martin playing a little SF too. Being the best player, with decent playing time in a contract year for him, I can see finishing the season (if he doesn't get dealt) with 20-23 points a night.

You "come back" in 9 moths to a year

You COME BACK in around 18 months.

CHicago needs 100% rose, and that is not happening until 2013-14 season.

Wolves are in the same boat.

McHale hates Martin. His lackluster defense, his inability to score off the dribble anymore, and the non-rip thru call killed Martin's career.

Wolves are in the same boat, but with a player who did it much earlier, and doesn't rely on pure explosiveness, and is not the teams best player at all.

this, rubio probably wont be affected as much as most players would. It's not like he'll lose his playmaking skills and court vision. I see it hurting him defensively for a while though. Rubio is one of the best defenders at the point in the league. Rose will have a tough time getting back to form imo

Honestly the best case scenario for any team that can make the playoffs is to win the championship.

The best case scenario for any team that has no chance at making the playoffs is to win the NBA Draft Lottery.
