Dallas, Heat & Thunder(due to hype) are the only teams that are in the Lakers way from them winning it all again. Hopefully Lakers can secure a top 2 seed in the West so they can only worry about 2 of those 3 teams.

Favourites? no

that honour goes to Dallas

with a few holes being filled there is no doubt this team can win the title again.

the honor goes to Miami as favorites. I don't think some people realize how good Miami will be next season. Personally I don't see dallas as a threat next year if the Lakers start off good. If we can fix the PG void then I see things going just fine. OKC, Miami, and possibly a 3rd upcoming team next year I see as the only possible threats.

If we land Dwight Howard or Chris Paul then I don't see anything going wrong next season

I'm not so sure if the Mavs are the favorites next season. And believe me, I have tremendous respect for their organization, and openly rooted for them vs the Heat (as every non-Heat/Lebron fan should).. I was even one of the very few Laker fans who realized how much of a threat they were to a Lakers title run.. this time last year. Link


But I doubt they can pull off another miracle season.. Hell, I doubt they get by the Western Conference.


IMO.. the Heat are the clear favorites. They will inevitably get by the leastern conference (with the decline of the big 3, it's officially the leastern conference again.) once more. And I highly doubt LeBron plays as bad as he did in the finals.

I still like to go with the champs are the favourites until proven otherwise if they keep the same core

obviously if Miami get some good role players who can give them 10-15 a night then Miami will be the favourites as all that team needs is some more scoring and size and then they are set.

Lebron's mindset is why i'm not completely sure of Miami right now but that said if they are to win titles then next year is the time.

I do wonder how well Wade will age, he will be 30 when the season is in play with any luck and it will be interesting how he adjusts.

That said all the teams around Miami are getting older apart from Bulls and Thunder and Miami's chance is now.
