    Can Boston and the big three repeat ?

    Do kobe and the Lakers have it set in stones to capture a title ?

    are the spurs time running out and this team will vanish ??

    Are the Bad Boy from the motor city back and set to rise once again ?

    Can King L.James get over the hump and move into the finals ??

    Is Utah ready to make a run for the title ?


    with some changes and good new talent entering this season who look to be
    the team to the final road all these question will be answered .....


    what's your take on this season and who will be the teams to beat
    let's hear your break down sports fan !

    Yes sir!

    Quit playing, hell no!

    They need to be training someone to replace Duncan while he's still around

    Again, quit playing. Hell no!

    Yeah, if he ever gets a consist jump shot.

    Yep, as soon as hell freezes over.


    All I can say is "Hawks baby!" and thats not because I work at Philips Arena. LOL

    Through rank Boston #1 Lakers #2 said they will meet in a title showdown

    Hawks look good but the Magic might be in there way
    with the Heat fading fast and the wizzards on the rise the Hawks have alot
    on there plate in this division and might not make it to round one less they have
    a knock out punch of there own

    Denver going to make a run for the playoffs while from L.A
    it might not say Lakers but Clippers

    Ok i know my Team seem sad but i have high hopes for a better season
    on the Bulls and the young star Rose

    Detroit will rule this division , likewise Boston

    Cavs need a bit more to really overcome the hill they face every year James need
    more help on the wing

    Mavs and Hornets will battle in the southwest

    T-wolve , Jazz ,Nuggets in the northwest will be in a dog fight this season

    First and foremost,

    Whoever plans on doin somethin better do it dis season (maaaayyybe next).. cause when Greg Oden develops into what he will be, Portland will be a Dynasty (other teams will DIE-NASTY tryin to play them)

    But of course Oden may not be able to stay healthy, then... forget it.

    The H0rnets will be stronger (but I don't know if they will be strong enough)

    The Jury is still out on L.A. Will Bynum be that second superstar to help Kobe in the playoffs? It remains to be seen. Eirbody thought it would be Gasol... but Hell NAW. He folded like a lawn chair.

    The Spurs are RAPIDLY running out of time. They have a long shot if they can stay healthy.

    In the East

    Philly will cause problems, but it remains to be seen how well they play together.

    Cleveland will be stronger (they never had time to gel as a team last year before the playoffs)

    I also believe that BY THE END OF THE SEASON, the Heat will be a top contender to come out of the East.

    But when it is all said and Done, it will be Boston coming out of the East. The West?

    yes

    the spurs reign could be over

    the hornets are great all they need to is learn how play playoffs basketball
    with 5 minutes left in a games and they will be unstoppable

    ARE OTHERS TEAM GOING TO ALLOW BOSTON ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE RING?:?:

    being from/in brooklyn N.Y., i'm totally embarrassed by the state of basketball here so the knicks need to show something with this new coach,
    the NETS are a wounded animal now

    other cities have greats team, LA, HOU, NO, BOS, DET, CLE, DAL, DEN

    what will the SUNS do to correct the oversight last season you know trading for SHAQ, and losing a great player in marion

    we'll see

    dang no respect for my rockets???

    Tmac is a softie who I despise dearly, and Yao's always hurt, so I understand certain people not taking them seriously. With that being said Ron Ron will add toughness, defense, offense, clutch play, etc. to our team. If the rockets can remain relatively healthy I like our chances...................Ron Ron and Battier will give teams fits defensively. And our depth is INSANE.

    PG: Alston/ Brooks/Brent Barry (has looked good in the preseason)
    SG: Shemac / Von Wafer (hasn't officially made the roster yet, but I hope he does)
    SF: Ron Ron/ Battier
    PF: Scola/ Landry (he's gonna be a 6th man candidate.....Carl's got game for those that don't know)/ Hayes (great defense)/ Dorsey (great defender, but won't see a lot of minutes probably)
    C: Yao / Mutumbo (we're signing him back pretty soon)


    Word is Steve Francis might get cut. I'll always love and respect Stevie Franchise for playing his heart out everynight (although he'd turn the ball over a lot), but those knees are done......

    No. Their playoff run wasn't all that impressive last year....They let the "hawks" take them to 7 games?!?!?!?!? Losing James Posey will hurt them a lot, and K.G. is still a softie (who pretends to be hard by growling excessively) who is fortunate that he had a true superstar like Paul Pierce to step up and make big plays.

    Depends on Andrew Bynum, their defense, and how Odom fits into his new role as 6th man.

    yes....they're done........thank god.....no more boring basketball. Manu is out the 1st couple of months, Timmy's losing it, and they added no siginificant pieces in the offseason...

    No, and they haven't been for a while now. Joey D should've made some changes in the offseason like he promised. Detroit will have a good reg. season and dissapoint in the playoffs yet again. Plus teams like Orlando, Toronto, and Philly all got better......

    Yes. Had he had a "lil" help last year they would've beat Boston in game 7. Mo Williams is the truth......

    No. I'm saying this partly, because I hate the Utah Jazz and everything that organization stands for.....But ultimately no. They still have no SG, they don't know how to win on the road, and Boozer AK47 and Okur are too inconsitent in the playoffs.......Deron Williams is a beast though.


    with some changes and good new talent entering this season who look to be
    the team to the final road all these question will be answered .....


    My Conclusion is


    Top Threats in the East:
    Cavs, Heat (my boy D. Wade is back healthy again along with Marion and Beasely), Celtics

    Top Threats in the West:
    Hornets (added Posey to solve the SG problem, and Paul and West will both be better....scary thought), Lakers, and Rockets (health is the key as always)

    The rockets look good in pre-season it might be a real battle in the WEST this year
    Lakers / Jazz / Mavs / Blazers on the rise Oden/Roy & Blake look out!
    Rockets /Clippers /Denver /Hornets & wolves.......WEST packed with talent
    Spurs know how to win playoff games and look to get back

    Hawks on the rise and will hurt lots of teams Cavs still missing one piece to it's puzzle
    but will be there again, Boston clearly the favorite Pistons not going away so fast and
    Philly young team gel together they gonna make a big impact Magic & Heat also going
    to make a splash and run everybody in the EAST have to go through Boston & Detroit
    and even Orlando.....
