As season ending the playoffs coming to form and i see the once rulers fading out the picture and the low rank teams on the rise this year ! in the EASTERN CONFERENCE red hot MIAMI is the team to beat DETROIT will be dethrone and the once top challenger New Jersey is fighting for the last and final spot with PHILLY while the BULLS hold the #4 spot and the forth best team in the EAST and 9-1 in the last 10 games who on the rise , and who fading ! The BULLS , CLEVELAND , WASHINGTON on the rise INDIANA , NEW JERSEY , TORONTO , PHILLY fading In the WESTERN CONFERENCE no doubt the best teams here SAN. ANTONIO , PHOENIX , SEATTLE , DALLAS are the teams and will be good to watch in the playoffs HOUSTON , SACRAMENTO in but fading slowly and need a strong finish to hold a spot with the lowly and sadly MINNESOTA who is out and need help from other teams and a string of wins in the final week to get the 8th spot , I can't see it happening and look like the LAKERS will be out even if they win there last 8 or 9 in a row can't help they went 1-9 in the last 10 games kobe is NOBE now say who? SHAQ he gone rebuild and trade Kobe, see u next year! on the rise : DENVER , MEMPHIS , Fading ! L.A. LAKERS , MINNESOTA , UTAH , PORTLAND and if HOUSTON don't come together they will fade too. DALLAS will be strong and look for the two hot teams of PHOENIX & SEATTLE to be handled by likes of San.Antonio or suprising DENVER or MEMPHIS my dark sleeper !
