Pacers a bit too low. And I don't get why everyone has Phx so damn low. I think Miami is too high actually.

I'm not the smartest guy in the world but this is pretty bad.

Im not to sure why Utah is so high and pacers are so low. Detroit also too high in my opinion, east over all is a little off.

Majority of the west seems fine to me interms of order, records I'm sure will be off on most.

Still working on mine, but I dig the love for Utah, I think they are ready to make that leap now.

Im not as high on Indy. Conflicted on Chicago vs Miami, think its going to show us whats more important, fit or talent. There were times last year when Miami played at its best without Wade because it allowed Dragic to fill the role hes most comfortable in and the team got out and running (which should thrive with Whiteside) but without Bosh and losing Deng, not sure if they got the horses unless their impressive rooks take a step forward. Whereas Chicago has added talent at 3 positions but they dont fit at all, and Im being kind when considering Rondo a talent.

Clips are going to be #2 if CP3 can hold off his decline another year, I got them pegged at 56 right now with San Antonio at 54.

Its a zero sum game and Im having trouble reconciling what happens between NOP, HOU, ATL given the swaps. I cant expect them all to improve by swapping players that were prolly deficits for their former teams. Like Dwight wasn't right in Houston but he goes to an Atlanta team in need of rebounding/finishing at the rim but at the same time they are losing a C who I consider the superior player in Horford. NOP is in year 2 of their new system, have a player capable of producing huge numbers with questionable impact but they cant possibly be worse can they?

Will Houston miss Dwight, will Atlanta miss Horford. Im thinking maybe Phoenix/SacTown have wildly disappointing seasons to even things out in the West.

Too high - CHA & MIA

Too low - NY, CHI, BK (not because BK will be good, but Lin & Lopez will be a good duo, enough to win at least 20 games)

in the west

too high - UTAH - i like their team, but can they get to .500 first before we start predicting 50+ wins out west?

too low - NOLA, PHO, HOU, DAL

Keep the HEAT out you mouth... Lol

Warriors arent losing 19 games is correct... West is getting way to much credit outside of the top 5 teams.... The hawks/Pacers are being pretty disrespected here in my opinion as well.

The surprising thing with the heat is Wade being gone will be a blessing and they could very well surprise people with how well dragic plays when wade isnt hogging the basketball.

The knicks are where I expect them to be... I think Porz is gonna have a really hard time without his defensive Anchor he had last season.

The thunder lost Durant but I find it hard to believe they are only going to be 4 games over 500... They made one hell of a trade in my opinion even though they lost Durant they still made improvements in other areas. They wont be great but 4 games? No way

This is gonna be your year man and you deserve it... I think the wolves win 48-52 games.

I think the next 10 years are gonna be our years. Finally

Wiggins has a ways to go, but I love the Thib's move for him especially. Lavine looks like he will end up at least a legit SG. The PG position should be fine.

But really, the reason I am so optimistic, is Towns blew me away. He is going to redefine the game over the next 10 years. In my opinion anyways

Dragic i'm sure will do better, but he & whiteside are not enough.

KP IS a defensive anchor... Lopez clogged the lane too much, and in terms of overall defense Noah is better. Lopez was great at protecting the rim, but he also never ventured out very far.

lol you and your insane predictions.

Even though I am a huge Giannis (BAE) homer, the Bucks are way low. I expect them to go 41-41/

Giannis94
09-30-2016, 10:36 AM
lol you and your insane predictions.

Insane predictions is Giannis winning all 5 First team offense positions and league MVP. I just said it. You can quote me on that.

This just isnt true... There was an article on it with the stats to back it up... When LOPEZ sat the knicks and porz fell off a cliff defensively.

I see Denver as more of a 25 win team.

Heat are WAY too high, they for sure will be a lottery team, maybe even have a top 5 pick in the 2017 draft.. They're pretty bad.

The Bucks are interesting but they are a strangely built team.

I dont see the celtics overtaking the raps, I think Toronto finishes 1st in the east. I also don't see the pacers missing the playoffs

Kush McDaniels

I'm not a Pacers fan, but they should be top 4 in the East. Turner is gonna be a beast this year on both ends. He gave Jonas fits in the playoffs. They have so much more length now and are going to be tough defensively.
