I think the Nuggets are way too high and the Warriors are way too low.

No way the Nuggets are five.

Closer to 25, than 5.

No K-mart, JR Smith, or Wilson Chandler.

I don't mind them picking us 9th though, it's a good rating considering it's a newly built team.

Yeah Denver at 5th is exaggerated but I surely see them making the playoffs, I'd say they're around 12.

Not to mention NeNe got his contract. Who knows if that will motivate him or relax him.

You see them making the playoffs? I don't, as they don't have that depth anymore.

I give them 25-28 wins this season.

The WC is not that deep.
Apart from OKC, Mavs, Lakers and Clips, who's gonna get before them, reasonably?
Grizzlies, Spurs and Portland are at their level imo.

Lawson / Miller <-- better than last season
Afflalo / Fernandez <-- awash with last season
Gallo / Brewer / Hamilton <--- it will depend on rookie Hamilton but I think Brewer and Chandler are comparable
Nene / Harrington / Faried <--- They've lost Kmart but Faried seems legit
Mozgov / Andersen / Koufos <--- Mozzy will probably improve compared to last year.

In other words they've replaced Felton with Miller and an improved Lawson.
JR Smith with Fernandez and an improved Afflalo.
Wilson with Brewer and a rookie.
KMart with Faried, but the rest of the frontcourt has gained experience.

Yeah I see them doing good.

Okc
Dallas
Clippers
Grizzlies
Spurs
Lakers
Warriors
Blazers

I even see the Wolves and Rockets being better.

Denver doesn't make it.

They rode a high last season, I expect that to fade.

Well I can't be sure about the others, but I'm quite certain that the Warriors can't make the playoffs with that lack of defense at the perimeter.

And let's hope the Knicks will confront one of them in June!

I see

Thunder
Spurs
Grizzlies
Mavericks
Clippers
Lakers
Blazers
Warriors

in that order. Wouldn't be surprised to see Denver overtake Golden State for the last spot though. I think they took a step back with the loss of Chandler AND SMith. Jordan Hamilton is really talented and slipped WAY too far. However, he also is known to lapse mentally and not bring it every night. I think him and Karl will clash. Karl is not a player friendly coach. I think a lot of Denver's wins came off of emotion. People counted them out once Melo left. Now that "fuel" is over with. I think they come back to earth. Furthermore, I think Melo is going to DESTROY them when we play them. George Karl has been talkin cash $hit about Melo ever since he left.
