@Memphis over the Kings. Seriously I don't even know why you guys think Memphis is going to be that good. They have only made one move and that's Gay for Battier which won't even help them that much YET. Are you guys forgetting that Gay is a rookie? The rest of that team HASN'T EVEN WON A PLAYOFF GAME YET and they lost one of their PGs. Damon's knee won't be the same again and their other PG is Chucky Atkins. Laker/Wiz fans used to call him Sucky Atkins. Now they lose Bobby and Battier for a couple rookies. Sorry I just don't see how they're somehow like the 4th best team in the west.

IMO they could. I'm not going to predict that they actually will but it wouldn't surprise me. There is a lot of talent on that team and now they got an unselfish uptempo PG.

Anyone going to disagree with this or are you going to just admit you guys have overrated Memphis?

IMO the 8th seed is up for grabs between Memphis, Sacramento, Utah, and New Orleans. Any one of those teams can make the 8th seed.

I think the Grizzlies are better. They have a better coach, more talent. They can always shop for a point guard. And you don't think Jerry West will make sure he has his point guard?

It's not that I'm overrating the Grizzlies. I'm just not gunna overrate the Kings for your own joy. By the way. I don't give a double f*ck about the Grizzlies. I also don't give a double f*ck for the Kings either or any team for that matter that's not the Los Angeles Clippers so if you are butt hurt about ME showing MY predictions, that is not my problem. Deal with it yourself.

What's funny about this thread is that alot of the posts didn't have any teams from the NWest.......You have to atleast have one.

Cleveland is not a top of the pack team.

no energy no hustle no passion.


right now only Orlando and Detroit deserve top team considerations. sure Miami don't have Shaq, but you don't rank teams on potential.
