I like your standings, though I think the Celtics & Bulls will place higher and the Nets lower than your prediction. Otherwise it's pretty much on-point. The Warriors' playoff hopes entirely hinge on on the lower limbs of Bogut & Curry, otherwise the TWolves might sneak in.

I will add, the 8-seed in the East IMO is totally up for grabs, I simply put my favorite team the Cavs in there in trying to be optimistic! I could definitely see any of the teams not named Charlotte or Orlando sneaking into that 8 spot as well though.

In the West, think the 7 & 8 seeds are wide open too.

Playoffs:
Miami over Cleveland in 5
Boston over Brooklyn in 7
Philly over NY in 6
Chicago over Indy in 6

Miami over Chicago in 6
Philly over Boston in 7

Miami over Philly in 6


OKC over Denver in 4
Lakers over Minnesota in 4
Clippers over Memphis in 7
Spurs over Dallas in 7

OKC over Spurs in 6
Lakers over Clippers in 5

Lakers over OKC in 6

Lakers over Miami in 6 in NBA Finals

It's too early to tell with all the injury situations. With a healthy Rose, the Bulls are clearly the 2nd best team in the east but that's a questionmark.

Knicks #3? Seriously? They will be fighting just to make the playoffs.

The west, OKC is the favorite....I have ZERO idea where the Lakers will wind up with all their personnel changes. Their collective age is also pause for concern with regards to injury. They are the giant wildcard and the most interesting experiment in the league at the moment.

I predict, that with our luck, Derrick Williams will lead the league in scoring the first month of the season, marries Rick Adelman's daughter and gets eaten by a pack of muskrats after slipping outside the Target Center and being knocked unconcious.

Kevin Love out 6 to 8 weeks

Going with my head and not my heart...

WCF: LA Lakers Vs. OKC
Thunder in 7

ECF: Boston Vs. Miami
Boston in 7

Finals: OKC vs. Boston
OKC in 7

MVP: Chris Paul
DPOY: Dwight Howard (honestly, I can't think of anyone else)
ROY: Anthony Davis
6MOY: Courtney Lee

These guesses are based on a few things. I think the Lakers with a new offense and new players will come up short against OKC and their continuity and familiarity.

As great as LeBron is I think Wade slips even further this season. That decline opens the door for the C's. Boston has added some quailty players. Doc Rivers excels at getting the most out of his players. Boston did take Miami seven games last season.

No matter what happens, it will be fun!
