1) Miami (Champs)
2) Phoenix (Nash, Diaw, Marion, Amare, Barbosa, Banks, Jones, Bell) - all great players
3) San Antonio (Parker, Manu, Duncan) - best trio in bball.
4) Dallas (Will not be as good as last year)
5) Detroit (even without ben wallace, they are an incredible force)
6) Indiana (Tinsley, Jackson, Granger, Harringon, Oneal) - one of the best starting lineups in the league.
7) LA Clippers (Cassel, Mobley, Maggette, Brand, Kaman) - in my opinion the best starting lineup in the league.
8) NJ Nets (Kidd is old but still effective, they had the best draft) Boone, Williams, Adams
9) Sacramento (Bibby, Salmons, Artest, Rahim, Miller) - that is one scary lineup.
10) Washington (Butler, Arenas, Jamison) - second best trio in bball.
sleepers: jazz, bulls, hornets, lakers
everybody who put houston in their top 10 is a moron. houston has been worthless since franchise left. there is no chance the rockets will make the playoffs this year.
1 - Phoneix - Add Amare and keep the core for a second year.
2 - Dallas - I don't like Dallas but they re-tooled and got better.
3 - Miami - Champs But they aren't a great regular season team
4 - San Antonio - There trio of players in second to none when it come to winning.
5 - Cleveland - LeBron. Maybe a healthy season for Hughes and Varejao.
6 - Clippers - Still lookig for Maggette to be traded but great team Cassel will win he always does.
7 - Detriot - They aren't the last yrs Pistons but in the East are a 50 win team
8 - Chicago - Could end up higher but we haven't seen them play together yet.
9 - Houston - Yao and TMac will win 50 games. Health is always a risk
10 - New Jersey - Kidd.Carter.Richardson In the East will finish in the top 4.
