I disagree with most of this but it was an interesting article.
Washington is in the 4-5 discussion with Bulls, Heat...Atlanta slides to 6-7 this year
heat will not make the playoffs this year the east has got alot better since last year detroit or philly will make the playoffs instead of them the wizards should be 4th or 5th seed followed by the raptors
the wizards under 500 c'mon wtf is that and rap out of the playoffs this standing is wack
i don't think heat will make the playoffs unless michael beasley has like a monster season like 20-10 and they also have a bad bench
I've just realized that the guys at ESPN are either completely retarded or really biased. Toronto finishing 9th?
I disagree with a lot of it. Miami did nothing to improve their roster but sit back and hope that Beasley, chalmers, and a healthy O'neal improves them. But everyone else improved their roster and they can't possibly expect any more from Wade can they?
Here's my list:
i like your top 6 but my 7 and 8 I have Bulls at 7 and the Heat at 8, Wade can carry them to the playoffs
Wade can carry a team as well as anyone. But I'm not as high on Beasley as a lot of people. O'neal hasn't been a major difference maker in years even when he was healthy. Basically, Wade played out of his mind and it resulted in 43 wins in what was a watered down year followed by a first round loss to a Hawks team that wasn't even playing well.
A handful of other teams will have to slip up for Wade to carry this heat team back to the playoffs again without any additional help in my humble opinion.
hopefully the pistons TANK so they can get a good lottery pick
