    Will Miami prove their critic wrong?

    Or we will see a rematch between Boston and Lakers?

    I think it will be another Lakers Celtic final. Heat are over hyped.

    Depending on the health of Bynum I think it's going to be Lakers v Celtics. It's tricky though because if Miami plays Orlando in the Eastern Conference Semis, I think Miami will win. But if Miami plays Boston I think the Celtics will win and I like Orlando in a Celtics v Orlando Eastern Conference finals. IMO Boston's two greatest threats to the finals are Chicago and Orlando not the Heat. Orlando has shooters which can always tilt the balance, and Chicago has athletes and hustle.

    The Lakers should be able to win the west again. A healthy Andrew Bynum is the greatest role player in the league IMO. If he would have been healthy last year the series never would have gotten to 7 games. When he wasn't in there Perkins and Big Baby where just killin' us on the low block. Generally with the edition of Ratiliff we have a lot more depth at that position. Serious challengers would be Dallas and San Antonio and both have flaws. With Dallas if you can stop there mid range game then you can win easily, same old story, they aren't really physical. Spurs are a little different, you need to stop them from cutting to the basket. Mainly Jefferson and Parker, you're just gonna have to deal with Timmy gettin' his. If that's you're biggest problem then your in good shape.

    So it's looking good for the Lakers to tie the Celtics record of 17 championships.

    Bynum is supposed to be back on Tuesday and we need him. We look completely different when he's playing.

    They're actually pretty decent. They have a good young nucleus, if they can get Melo next year they can compete for titles.

    Derrick Rose (Possibly the MVP)
    Luol Deng
    Taj Gibson (SC Alumni)
    Carlos Boozer
    Kyle Korver
    Joakim Noah

    Team GB were playing in a tournament in the O2 last year. Luol Deng is a nice guy - was happy to sign autographs...

    I think its still too early to say because injuries always play a part. However, I will say Lakers and Spurs out of the West and Celtics and Bulls out of the East look like the two best teams. I really don't see Miami as a contender this year because they are not built well for the playoffs, you have to have half court offense and solid big guys they are dicey in both areas.

    If I were to put money on it now I would still bet Lakers vs Celtics in the Finals, this year Boston getting the win

    I think Chicago is a serious contender this year they still haven't had their whole roster healthy yet at the same time, when they are could be scary good.

    Team of Gregg Popovich is first in the Western Conference.. Spurs have been good for years and years now..

    hah after searching for an overall table .. could not find any.. i see that Spurs have the best record in the league right now..

    42 wins and 8 losses.. no one better at the moment..

    At the end of the day if the Lakers can't do it again, I would much rather the Spurs, Thunder, Magic or even Heat. I friggin' hate the Celtics.

    Bulls will win the Championship! You heard it here first.

    Miami are a good team but if either LeBron or Wade gets injured its over for them.
    Spurs (San Antonio) have too many injurys at the moment and will struggle when their bench gets tired.
    LA Lakers, I dont like them so I dont want them to win it!

    I would love to see Denver go far as I've had a fondness for them over the past couple of years, but think they will struggle to overcome OKC Thunder.

    Bulls over Lakers in 7. I don't see anything really exciting happen but I wouldn't mind seeing the Nuggets do some damage on the West side of the bracket. Celts are too old and too hurt to do much, I could see the Knicks push them to 6 games in the first round and make them spend too much energy early on. Mind you, I'm a Bulls fan so there is absolutely some bias in my pick, if the Bynum plays like an all-star I don't think the Lakers can be beaten.

    I think its gonna be really close this year. I think if the Bulls can keep playing at the high level that they have been, they'll make the finals.

    Can't really look past the Lakers in the West. I actually think the Spurs could go out against Memphis. As good as they looked in the regular season, I think they really look beatable over a series.

    I'm a Hornets fan, and I hate to say it but we're probably gonna get swept by the Lakers. We just can't cope with their size. If we win 2 games it'll be an achievement lol.

    Actually is Bynum still injured? If he is we might actually stand a chance.

    I would prefer to the Bulls if the Lakers can't do it. If the Lakers aren't going to win I would rather go out in the Semis. I'm sick of seeing that team lose in the finals.

    Let's hope the Magic!! But realistically I think it's going to be the Celtic.

    No. There is a Cleveland team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they didn't make it into the Play-Offs
