I have been a fan of the Nets since 2004, basically because when I played NBA Live they were the worst team but had the fan base and ability to become good. Since then they have moved to Brooklyn with a new billionaire owner (who gives not one fu*k about the luxury tax) and a magnificent new stadium. I might be a bit biased but the Nets have put together one of the most solid 5's in the league. It's hard to find a team that beats the Nets in every position and in bench strength. Williams, Johnson, Pierce/Kirilenko, Garnett and Lopez is a dream for a fan and I look forward to battling it out for those high Eastern Conference positions.

I realised after I wrote this that It said League instead of the Association. I'm a bit confused why it wont let me edit my own thread.

Haha... NBL is in Australia :P

 

Well, all I could say is the Warriors made a good move in getting Iguodala. It would help Curry and Thompson alot. 

 

Wrong moves for Houston (yes Houston)

 

D12 is not as prominent as he was before.

Yeah it was in my mind when writing the title as I'm from Australia :P

 

The Warriors have a really solid 5 and depth on the bench. You would expect them to at least finish top 4 at the very worst. In some ways with the Rockets I agree, Howard is the best center in the world that cannot be disputed, but it limits a smaller market team like the Rockets immensely. They have to hope that Lin can pull his weight consistently, Parsons maintains and exceeds his form from last year and their bench somehow displays a high level of competence.

Nothing to be ashamed of, the Jazz have an incredibly talented young team with a ton of cap space. Probably the best of the young teams.

2.00 cm?

 

Woah, I better be afraid of you. :P

 

Well, the Spurs can also go a long way as long as they keep the Big 3 healthy and Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard productive. The only mistake I guess for them this off season is giving up Gary Neal. He was a key guy in the Finals and I am shocked that they gave him up. (PS: I'm a Spurs fan :D)

 

Lakers, nothing else to do except hope for the best with Kaman around. I know he's a proficient bigman and could be the answer to D12's exit. I am also finding a spark from Pau Gasol and the newly acquired players.

Celtics fan here. Its going to be a hard season, and harder then ever securing play off spot in the East. Considering Pistons and Cavs getting stronger.

Yep, they're losing star players, but there are rumors that a Jennings-Rondo trade is an option.

You would hope not if you're a Celtic fan. Rondo > Jennings. Jennings has not remotely lived up to the hype surrounding him.

Well, I don't like the idea too. Rondo is a crowd favorite in Boston I guess.

Yup, and as it stands I don't think Boston will falter too much this season. They just need to dump the big contracts given to them by the Nets, use their draft picks well (including the extra ones) and bring in the right players in FA. Boston should be able to allure the best.

My favourite player is CP3, and team boston. Heat will probably be on 1st position on the east, especially if oden be healthy, bulls, pacers, knicks and nets will be from 2nd to 5th, detroit has a really good roster, but I think they can't be better then 6, and probably cavaliers (if bynum won't play bowling :D) and bucks will be in playoffs. On the west it's hard to predict who will be first, but i expect spurs (duncan, manu and green must play good), clippers, warriors, grizzlies, thunder (if RW and KD won't be injured), timberwolves (if pek stay, and love play more then 50 games), rockets and I expect pellicans in playoffs. Nuggets without coach Karl, lakers (without DH, kobe is injured, and steve nash is not good as he was 10 years ago), utah without AJ, dirk with only one star-Monta Ellis, trail blazers, in my opinion are not capable for playoffs, suns and kings are there only to fight for 14th position on the west.

I essentially agree besides the Kings part. They have put together a solid list and with a new front office you could see them doing very well.

The LA Lakers will probably have a better season this year. Kobe is expected to be back by tip-off. Steve will be healthy again. And D12 or as I call him "Dead Weight of LA", is out to Houston. Even though Nash is not as good as he was before, he is still the Steve Nash. Also, Chris Kaman and Pau Gasol would be a dominant duo for the LakeShow. I guess their main problem would really be injuries. Keep everyone healthy. Even with MWP gone, they got a lot of new players. Young is the man I am looking at to step up for the Lakers. I guess they could go back to winning form. Maybe 4th or 5th or 6th place finish would be reasonable.

If Ainge trades Rondo he will destroy everything. I can understand KG and Pierce trade. Celtics now have a lot of talent wich has to grow around Rondo, primary Green, Bradley, Sullinger and Brooks.
