NBA Playoff Predictions

You heard it here first

Western Conference:

  1. San Antonio
  2. Houston
  3. Sacramento
  4. Denver
  5. Dallas
  6. Seattle
  7. Golden State
  8. Memphis
  9. Minnesota
  10. LA Lakers
  11. LA Clippers
  12. Utah
  13. Phoenix
  14. Portland
  15. New Orleans
You tell me how raja bell, james jones, and kurt thomas can replace JJ, Q-Rich and Amare?? I predict Nash gets injured, and Phoenix ends up in the lottery. Golden State makes the playoffs, Minnesota comes close, and Phil Jackson finds out that he can't win without the two best players in the game (Shaq/Kobe or Mike/Scottie). New Orleans loses a pickup game against a local high school - but Desmond Mason kills for my fantasy team.

Eastern Conference:

  1. Miami
  2. Indiana
  3. Detroit
  4. Cleveland
  5. New Jersey
  6. Chicago
  7. Milwaukee
  8. New York Knicks
  9. Boston
  10. Orlando
  11. Philadelphia
  12. Washington
  13. Atlanta
  14. Toronto
  15. Charlotte
The top 4 are pretty much set - no argument there. Philly lost their depth - and c-webb is baaad. Watch out for milwaukee - good-looking team, though I'm not sold on terry stotts. Orlando is a wild card - it's all up to francis and his playmaking - if he dribbles for 90% of the shot clock, they're in the lottery again.

And I know - I have toronto BELOW atlanta. I don't want to hear about it..:)
