I think it's generally understood that dallas' exit was an abberation. GS played a perfect series just to be able to beat dallas in 6, when dallas was playing awful. The Houston trolling is hilarious though, I must admit, because every year people expect them to win it all and they lose in the 1st round

I could see maybe the Mavs, because they did reach the Finals two years ago and had the best record last year. They also match up really well against the Spurs.

But the Suns?

The Rockets?! Stevie Franchise pushes them over SA, Dallas and Phoenix?

The Suns are a really good regular season team because they just run teams out of the building and it's hard to prepare for their unconventional style when you are playing 4 games a week.
The Rockets are a joke though, I agree. Every year people think they will go all the way (I remember that retard GeeWiz fellatingg Mcgrady and saying Houston would win it all, lol) and they lose, even though they have 2 of the premier players at their respective positions.

That kind of logic fails around here man. I try and say that stuff, and immediately get flamed by about 15 people with names varying from TheFranchise3 to YaoTMac#1.



As for the Suns, that's pretty much it. They're not really built for the playoff grind. You can't keep up that run and gun style for an entire 7 game series, where every game is crucial, let alone four 7 game series.

i dont believe houston will be top 3, but you have to admit the TEAM is much better then they were before. we have addressed our biggest needs at pg and pf, addressed our depth issue, and imo picked up a better coach. im pretty stoked for this year. until we actually prove something tho, we cant be ranked ahead of phoenix, dallas, or san antonio.

yeah Houston is certainly better personnel-wise, but who knows how good they will actually be as a team. they certainly have a better collection of players than dallas, but it remains to be seen if they will have the great chemistry that dallas and san antonio have.

I'll take the underdog Jazz for this. I think they've proven their durability and they're still hungry.

Suns and Houston break down throughout the year, Spurs are ancient, and I think Dallas is going to implode.

You're being an ignorant ass if you don't think the Rockets have improved, besides Stevie & Mike James (regardless of what you think that's a large improvement over Alston), they've added a real PF, and a better head coach. A top three record is unlikely since the competition is so tough, but they're in the discussion.

yeh, like i said, im as excited as any houston fan with what the rockets front office has accomplished. until they play a season together tho, its all just on paper. i believe we deserve the 4 seed right now. san antonio, dallas, and phoenix have not lost any key players and have been better then us the past few years. so until we can prove something on the court, it would be silly to rank us higher then them.

now hopefully come all-star break..we can be legitimately bumped up a few spots
