Well many of you know how this works. The poster answers the question the previous poster asked while than framing their own question for the poster to answer. Make the questions interesting and try and respond to them with at least some detail.

Here I go.

Can the Indiana Pacers challenge the Heat & Celtics for Eastern Conference title?

No I think they may be able to get a top 4 seed but they just cannot match up with Miami. Will Jeremy Lin be successful in Houston?

He'll be okay, but nowhere near the hype.

Do more than 5 teams have a nonzero chance of winning the title this season?

Yes, I think they'll be right around 4 or 5.

Will LeBron be the clear cut MVP again and not win it because the voters will want to give it to someone else? ie durant?

Ima go ahead and predict no, I want the kid to do well and I think he will be a serviceable player/bargain for his deal but Im just a non-believer on the on court product. Hype is too high, isolation/shooting numbers were unreal, and the system in place is meant for PnR players with better vision than I saw from him. I say he does good enough not to get the Rockets mocked, but a far cry from what we saw in NY.




My question is this, last year the Clippers were above average at 3 positions (PG, PF, C), with all the additions they've made, can the swing spots actually produce this year?
Basically, will either of our SG or SF positions be a strength?

Didn't they take Miami to 6 games last year? I agree they won't beat them but they sure can compete against them

No he won't be the clear cut MVP

Durant
Kobe
Dwight

Will all be in the running it depends on team record IMO if the lakers dominate and finish with the best record either Kobe or Dwight will get the MVP most likely Dwight though because of his defensive impact
But if both Durant and Lebron finish with similar records and both have similar stats as last year I say they give it to Durant just for the fact that they won't want to give it to Lebron again( I do think lbj's production will drop) I think wade will have a bigger impact on the heat this year

Is Shaq being genuine on his opinion about Dwight or is he just being insecure?

Shaq is being insecure, he's jealous IMO

Does Nash have a bigger impact on the lakers this year or will it be Howard?

Nash has a bigger impact because he has the ball in his hands more.

Will DRose come back this year and have an impact?

No, too many good teams in the West. They have an outside shot of making it if Bogut and Curry stay healthy.

Do the Heat repeat?
