I say regular season will be good. 55+ with the addition of Dyess' scoring and the new rules of the past year. Playoffs, well I'm not so sure. I think ECF can be counted on, moving on from there will be tough.

They'll still make the playoffs and they'll win 48-52 games...They will get eliminated in the 2nd round...

ECF is a legit possibility, but beyond that, I don't think they have much of a chance.

really, I see 5th seed. I think, in particular order, chicago, miami, NJ, cleveland are all better right now. so the pistons I think will face one of those teams in round one, and I don't know that they'll win...

Cavs almost beat us because of Ben. You must have watched, Z was tearing him up, totally embarrassing. Cavs will still be the 4th seed at best so you'll get stomped by us in the Semi's.

Any team counting on Z and LH aren't winning any division.

Hey, it's possible our defense totally stinks it up now, we have a total loss of defensive intensity, etc. I just don't think that'll happen. Rasheed and McDyess are excellent defenders and should allow our perimeter defenders to still roam and make plays.

ECF possibly. I think 3rd seed. Just barely over Lebron. I think the Bulls season will be a total failure. NJ and Miami will have better records though.

they are good defenders but none of them can rebounds, block shots or intimidate like ben wallace, and certainly none of them can hang with shaq like ben wallace does.

Rasheed and McDyess, and Nazr for that matter all rebound and block shots.

And it's laughable you think Ben can hang with Shaq.

Do you even watch the playoffs?
