Once again, users on PSD partook in a fantasy game that "mocked" what real NBA teams did with their off-season. GMs of teams drafted, signed free agents, and traded players to improve their team. Now the playoff brackets are set, and it is up to ALL OF YOU to vote on who should win!!! All players are considered healthy.

2. Cleveland (Home Court)
CJ Watson/Kirk Hinrich
Paul George/Marco Bellinelli/Rodney Hood
Lebron James/Marco Bellinelli/Rodney Hood
Tristan Thompson/Jordan Hill/Lebron James
Timofey Mozgov/Jordan Hill
IR: Elijah Millsap, Damjan Rudez, Joe Harris

7. Brooklyn
PG: Patrick Beverley - Jeremy Lin - Erik Green
SG: Kyle Korver - Alan Anderson
SF: DeMarre Carroll - Richard Jefferson
PF: Serge Ibaka - Brandon Bass - Chuck Hayes
C: Tiago Splitter - Greg Stiemsma

I actually really like the players on Brooklyn and their fit and would vote for them but the talent differential is just too big to ignore.

Brooklyn with one of the bigger turnarounds of the game, good job

Not hating yes its a turnaround but not as big as you are making it to be. In real life the next got the 8th seed. Just 1 seed down than what they got here.

Im also curious though on how the cavs lost 2 stars and got only 1 star back with basically the same depth as the team before?

this isn't a real life game....... so the fact that this Brooklyn team is ridiculously more talented than the real life team is what you should focus on instead of where they were placed for the playoffs. Take this BRK team in real life, no way it is the lowly 8th slot

In real life this brooklyn team is 7th seed at best. A bunch of good players but none of which can impact enough on the offensive to warrant a seed higher than 7th. Cant even compare to real life hawks, atleast they have millsap and horford who can score 16-20 points per game. Korver and carroll are nice but not as the primary scorers but with this draft team they would have to carry the offensive load which i think doesnt make them that much better than what you say it to be

I tried like hell to make a couple more trades to improve this team but seemed like this was the ceiling of this team after flipping "assets" or lack of from the original roster. I actually think I matchup well here, didn't expect 10-1. Either way, **** the Nets. I had to take them over cus I was late as **** to the signups and they were the last team left lol.

You didn't do badly with what you had. And you were prob never gonna get the player your team is lacking without giving up all of you pieces that make your team good. This is why I prefer the redrafts to mock. The people that get the best teams in mocks have a much much easier time with it. Where as in redrafts while drafting low has its disadvantages isn't not a death sentence.

I traded them Paul George for Kyrie, then Kevin Love left in free agency to play with Russell Westbrook in Memphis.

and the real life cavs can spend 100+ and it doesn't really matter

Brooklyn is well balanced, but they don't have a single guy on the roster I would consider a legitimate No. 1 or No. 2 on a contender. And Cleveland may have lost Love, but I really like the additions of Hill, Watson and Bellinelli to the rotation. George for Hinrich is a pretty big gamble, but if PG is the guy we know he's capable of, then that is one nasty, unstoppable two-way wing combo. The talent differential here is significant.

Cleveland in 4.
