New Jersey Nets or Minnesota

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota Timberwolves-Nets, they have more talent and players that at least compliment each other

Ramon Sessions or Jonny Flynn (assuming they both get 24 mpg)-Tough but I'll go Sessions. But Flynn will take over next season.

Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant (dont consider team success)-Wade if you go by statistical production.

Danny Granger or Kevin Durant- Durant will score more, but Granger will provide more things. So I choose Granger.

Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat- I'll choose the Heat. Wade will keep them competitive, but I don't think the Suns will be out West.

New York Knicks or Milwaukee Bucks-I'll go Bucks, they have 2 of their best players coming back. Plus Jennings. I think they'll be a lotto team, but the Knicks will be in the NBA's basement once again.

Houston Rockets or LA Clippers-I'll take the Clippers. I think the Rockets will have a season eerily similar to the one the Wizards had last year.

BJ Mullens or Hasheem Thabeet-I'll go Thabeet, Mullens will be better next year though when he gets more time and development.

Shaq or Brook Lopez (dont consider team success)-I think it'll be a push, or Lopez would get the upper hand because there's a good chance he'll score more.

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota Timberwolves - The Nets. They have Harris, Lee, Williams, Yi and Lopez. They have more talent and the brighter future.

Ramon Sessions or Jonny Flynn (assuming they both get 24 mpg) - I'm going to go with Flynn at this point. Sessions hasn't look good during the pre-season.

Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant (dont consider team success) - Wade's team relies on him more, so he'll have a better season statisitically wise.

Danny Granger or Kevin Durant - Granger will have a great season, but I'm going with Durant. I think it's his time to break out.

Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat - The Heat. The suns are the better team, but the Heat have a better chance of making the playoffs because they play in the East.

New York Knicks or Milwaukee Bucks - The Bucks. Bogut and Redd are returning from injury, plus they have Jennings. Warrick has played well during the pre-season. The Knicks just aren't very good.

Houston Rockets or LA Clippers - The Clippers. They'll be in competition for a lower playoff spot this season. The Rockets won't have Yao for the entire season and T-Mac probably won't return until Dec-Jan.

BJ Mullens or Hasheem Thabeet - I'm going with Thabeet. He'll play more and have more of an impact on the defensive end. I think Mullens is a project similar to Kosta Koufos. If anything this should've been between Serge Ibaka and Hasheem Thabeet. I think Ibaka will be better than Mullens.

Shaq or Brook Lopez (dont consider team success) - Cleveland only plans on playing Shaq 25-30 MPG to save him for the playoffs, so I'm going with Lopez.

Timberwolves..I like Big

Timberwolves..I like Big Al-Love-Flynn trio
FLynn- he is more true pg i think
Wade- statistically he will be way better than Kobe(and while people compare LeBron with Kobe, i think Wade is easy in this discussion, and some could say even the best)
Durant-Granger is good because of scoring and nice stats in blocks/steals but in both i see Durant even better, he is terrific scorer and with his very long hands and athletisicm he is able to have something like 1.5blk and stls plus he had better rebounds avg and this year he will be even better rebounder, don't forget he had couple huge double-doubles with new head coach
Phoenix- if we are looking for will/loss record
New York-Milwaukee i see as a 15th team in the East
LAC- 7 spots is almost locked and i think if Baron, Camby and Kaman will stay healthy together will young guys they are good enough to be 8th
Hasheem- he is 2nd pick he will get at least 15min IMO, when BJ might will have a lot of "DNP"
Brook by a little- but Shaq is still better

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota Timberwolves- Nets, they have a allstar pg a very good center and solid players at every position

Ramon Sessions or Jonny Flynn (assuming they both get 24 mpg)- Flynn, I think he will be pretty productive his first year

Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant (dont consider team success)- Wade, he will have the better season statistically
he also my pick for MVP.

Danny Granger or Kevin Durant- Durant, He has unlimated potential and has shown improvement each year I think he has a good chance to lead the league in scoring and be a allstar starter.

Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat- Heat, They have one of the best players in the world in Wade and Beasly and Chalmers have improved so I think they will be a pretty good team this year.

New York Knicks or Milwaukee Bucks- Knicks, They have some talent in there lineup and I dont think the Bucks will be very good this year

Houston Rockets or LA Clippers

BJ Mullens or Hasheem Thabeet- Thabeet, He has looked good in training camp and so far in preseason he should have a pretty good year and I dont think he will be a bust like most people think.

Shaq or Brook Lopez (dont consider team success)- Lopez, Shaq is getting older and his numbers are decreasing while Lopez is getting alot better and his numbers will increase.

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota Timberwolves: Easily New Jersey. Neither team will be great but the T-Wolves will have the worst in the league. 60+ losses for them.

Ramon Sessions or Jonny Flynn (assuming they both get 24 mpg):Ramon Sessions. Hes just more complete and he has more experience. Flynn will be good tho.

Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant (dont consider team success):Wade will have better stats. Kobe has the better team. It just depends on how you look at it. I think Wade will put up MVP numbers. Kobes numbers will go down a little.

Danny Granger or Kevin Durant: IMO, the top 2 scorers this season. I say Durant has the better year but not by much.

Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat: They will be about the same. If I had to pick Id say the suns. They have more trade pieces and could easily make their team better by the break.

New York Knicks or Milwaukee Bucks
Knicks will just because they have more talent. Bucks wont be good this year.

Houston Rockets or LA Clippers
Clippers, Houston will miss playoffs

BJ Mullens or Hasheem Thabeet
Thabeet. IMO he'll make All Defensive 2nd team. Maybe not but there is a chance.

Shaq or Brook Lopez (dont consider team success)
I reallky like Brook Lopez and Shaq has a lot of players around him who will score more than him. Id say Brook.

new jersey- they have the

new jersey- they have the deeper team.
jonny flynn- i think he will be motivated because everyone is pissed rubio didnt come play, and not happy about having a talent like flynn.
Dwayne Wade will have the better numbers, probably 31ppg, 5rpg, and 7apg, to 25ppg, 5rpg, and 4apg.
Kein Durant- Danny Granger is real good but KD just dominated this year and oh yea he just turned 21!
Phoenix Suns will have more wins but Miami should have the better playoff seed. I think Phoenix is better talent wise.
New York Knicks easy. Bucks have talent but they always run into injury problems.
Houston Rockets- It will be close but I think Houston could be ok because they play D. But i will definately not watch houston over the clippers. I think houston finished 9th in the west and clippers finish 10 or 11.
BJ Mullens- Im going out on a limb because mullens may not play much but I think he could be like a chris "birdman" anderson with the right mindset.
brook lopez- shaq will have a good year, but cleveland will beat alot of teams by alot of points and when its garbage time shaq will be resting that big, high mileage body. lopez will have beter numbers than last year as well. i think shaq will only average 22-25mpg while lopez will be over 32.

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota

New Jersey Nets or Minnesota Timberwolves-Close, but Nets should be better.

Ramon Sessions or Jonny Flynn (assuming they both get 24 mpg)-I like Flynn to win the starting spot and have a better year.

Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant (dont consider team success)- Toss up. Kobe will be the better player and impact the game more, Wade will put up better stats.

Danny Granger or Kevin Durant-Personally, I would take Granger just because he brings a little more to the table the Durant does.

Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat-Close, I don't see either team making the playoffs, but I'll go with the Suns

New York Knicks or Milwaukee Bucks-I think the KNicks will be better. More talent and depth

Houston Rockets or LA Clippers-I have the CLippers competing for a playoff spot, so I'll go with them

BJ Mullens or Hasheem Thabeet-Thabeet easily. He is much more ready to contribute right away.

Shaq or Brook Lopez (dont consider team success)-Brook. He runs the court and gaurds pick and rools better then Shaq ever did, and those things mean a lot.

johnny flynn..word is he is

johnny flynn..word is he is giving sessions fits..like i said before im not jumping on sessions bandwagon. i think too many people on here are ready to say hes the next great pg yet hes going to a new team with no established pg and a rookie is gonna beat him out for the starting spot

you cant really say whos gonna be better and not consider team success when 2 players are very good players yet one team i a title contender and the other is a 7,8 seed in the playoff..obviously the player with the worst team will have better stats

knicks will be the east version of the kings...they have 3rd team options on there team

id say clipper unless mcgrady comes back healthy..even then its a to up only because the clipper are still the....clippers

and i say brook lopez not even really close..he will make the all star team. watching him this preseason ive noticed hes gotten better and he wa already good last year..hes not gonna blow you away with a bunch of dunks but he has alooooot of post moves, a good j, and very high basketball iq
