my picks

East:

1. Philadelphia
2. Milwaukee
3. Indiana
4. Brooklyn
5. Miami
6. Boston
7. Toronto
8. Orlando
9. Detroit
10. Chicago
11. Atlanta
12. New York
13. Cleveland
14. Washington
15. Charlotte

West:

1. Houston
2. Denver
3. LA Clippers
4. LA Lakers
5. Portland
6. Utah
7. Golden State
8. San Antonio
9. Sacramento
10. New Orleans
11. Oklahoma City
12. Dallas
13. Phoenix
14. Minnesota
15. Memphis

Awards/Stats (order counts):

MVP: Giannis, Jokic, Curry
MIP: Monk, Tatum, Anunoby
DPOY: Gobert, George, Butler
6MOY: E.Gordon, VanVleet, Schroder
ROY: Morant, Williamson, Hachimura

PPG: Curry, Giannis, Beal
RPG: Drummond, Towns, Kanter
APG: Simmons, Rubio, Young
BPG: Robinson, Gobert, Turner
SPG: George, Butler, Smart

I found it extremely difficult this year with all the player movement and injuries. I feel like my playoff teams/non playoff teams are pretty good, but the actual standings within those are totally up in the air. With awards and stats I feel like I had 4-5 guys I wanted to list and had to dwindle it down to 3. I felt like I went a little bolder than I usually do.

Now get on it and do your own up!

OKC

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong but...

Chris Paul and the OKC Thunder might be the sleeper team in the West. I don't know if you notice but CP3 wants to prove doubters wrong and that he could lead this team in the West much like the 2001-02 Nets with Kidd. I'm not saying Finals bound guarantee but the impact they'll have in the regular season might be the same.

Says he plans on winning, he

Says he plans on winning, he likes the talent they have and he's happy with his situation. He is also getting paid $40 million dollars so I'm almost certain he's being honest that hes happy with his situation lol. Doubt OKC will be a pushover.
