No defense. IMO they will do fine in the regular season and then fall apart against the better teams. Pheonix Suns east.

That is, unless D'Antoni can't get them to play D, they have early losses and they start fighting amongst each other and then ole Carmelo gets the coach kicked.

Hawks below Orlando? They beat Orlando in the playoffs last year and also gave teh Bulls a good fight.

Lakers without Odom? Really....um...Bynum better be able to give em 38min a night or it's going to be a tough season. He is the X-factor....can he give minutes without getting hurt. Otherwise the team is Pau, Kobe and crap.

Dallas is my fav to win unless someone proves otherwise.

How BOTH the HEat and Bulls continue to develop is the big question mark.

I think the Knicks will surprise a lot of people in defense this year. Not only because of Chandler, but the team in general.

I think Orlando is like 21-4 in their last 25 games against the Hawks.

Thats because Hawks lost some offense in Jamal crawford which HE killed Orlando last year. Hawks are still garbage.
