At 4 and 5 I would put Indiana and OKC. Either way, I wouldn't put the Nets in the top 5 because I don't think they are top 3 in the East.

I would put the Clippers ahead of the Nets as well

Heat can't be in the NbA Finals 4 years in a row, that's a lot of minutes..a lot of games.

Bulls
Pacers
Heat
Nets
Thunder
Spurs
Rockets w Dwight

Warriors are still too young...

No order: Heat, Spurs, OKC, Bulls, Clippers. Pacers right there, tho I don't like how Hill is still there PG.

1: Heat
2: Thunder
3: Rockets
4: Spurs
5: Warriors

After these teams, the Grizzlies, Pacers and Bulls should be tough and the Knicks or Nets will at least win the Atlantic for whatever that's worth.

You think the Heat are going to be the 3rd seed in the East?

I like how OKC is starting become an afterthought in these type of talks now. Hope people keep sleeping on them.

The Heat are still the favorites, then teams like the Thunder, Spurs, Bulls (if Rose is back to being Rose, or at least close) and maybe the Pacers are the next tier of teams. I'd probably knock the Pacers down a tier to the Rockets, Warriors, Grizzlies group. They just present so many match-up problems for the Heat, and I think people think they're better than they really are.
