they actually put cleveland ahead of orlando and boston?
Knicks last? lol I think they will be much better than the bucks and nets.
They obviously fllow hype or something because i can tell you right now LeBron's going in the 2nd round. I think they were better off without Shaq. Maybe if they would've added Bosh, that would have been good.
washington not in the playoffs they going to be good and knicks last dont see that happening
The sixers at the 12th spot..............lol
I think they will be at the 4 - 6 spot.
They are going to be a lot better with elton brand heathy
don't listen to that garbage basketball site
they should take indy and raps out and put washington and 76ers
I don't think the Knicks are the worse...and I agree that Philly and the Wiz should be in.
The East should be interesting this year. I think it goes something like Top 3 - C's, Cavs, and Magic (In no order)
Then at the four spot it's going to be the Wiz (Barring Injuries) Then the last four will be Hawks, Philly, Heat, and Raptors. Pistons miss it and so do the Pacers. Bobcats have no scorers anymore besides an undersized Point Guard and he is a bench player along with Gerald Wallace, but if that team signs A.I then lookout.
dont think the Bulls will go that high.
don't like it
Heat over the Raptors? Yea, right.
if they get Lamar Odom they could be deadly. and that was an old post i dug up and alot of things have changed in free agency so its not that good.
due to a number of things, a Go To Scorer in D.Wade. Hedo isn't that...also a Tinsley signing would help them which I hear is close to getting done. Mario Chalmers would be a great backup or vice versa. Beasley, I look for him to improve much in his second year and Jermaine O' Neal to become a better defensive presence (Rebounding and Shot Blocking)
Haslem has always been a solid player at the 4 spot and if they can attract Odom to their team I think that definetely pushes them over the Raptors and that could push them ahead of other teams. Raptors have a good team and I like it and I believe they can surprise some people this season, but I don't feel confident enough to put them any higher.
Heat are extremely overrated........if they get no players that can actually help the team thsi year then they are probably going to be 8th seed if not making the playing-offs, right now they are only in the play-off picture because of rumours
As of now:
Knicks wont be the worst and Wizards over Hawks
The Wizards are the most deepest team in the NBA
If I had to pick the team to finish last in the East, it'd be either the Bucks or Nets. There's no way the Knicks finish dead last.
There are 2 much knick haters there not as bad as alot of teams.......such as bucks, nets.......yea thats pretty much it but they aren't the worst lol and washington is making it to the play-offs.....just had a injury filled season.....and the white boy pacers aren't making it, jack and daniels were a big reason they even won that much games, dahntay jones has no offense and will be a peremeter defender
