With the opening of the 2014-15 season only a couple of hours away, I decided to make my predictions for playoff seedings.

Western Conference:
1. Spurs
2. Thunder
3. Clippers
4. Rockets
5. Warriors
6. Trail Blazers
7. Mavericks
8. Grizzlies

Eastern Conference:
1. Cavaliers
2. Bulls (assuming Rose is reasonably healthy for the majority of the regular season)
3. Raptors
4. Wizards (would of had them 3rd if Beale had not injured his wrist)
5. Bobcats
6. Nets
7. Heat
8. Hawks

If Rose is close to his best I would say Cavaliers v Bulls is 50/50. I think if the Cavaliers meet the Spurs in the Finals, San Antonio will sweep them because Cleveland won't be able to defend the Spurs five-man spread offense and the Cavs won't even be as experienced as the 2013-14 Heat obviously.
