    1. Celtics
    2. Warriors
    3. Kawhi Leonard
    4. Nuggets - I was high on them last year too and it didn't happen but I like their roster and I think they're a playoff team.
    5. Blazers
    6. Butler is the obvious one but besides him I'll say Marc Gasol gets traded somewhere.

    1. Raptors
    2. Warriors
    3. Giannis
    4. Nuggets, not because they'll make the playoffs, but because I think they'll be the #2 seed
    5. Rockets, depth took a hit, don't like the Melo addition
    6. C.J. McCollum to... I don't know, but he's my prediction for a trade this season

    Wizards are a good call. They're inconsistent and already had a weird locker room and now they've added Howard, Rivers, and Green to that mix. I was close to going with them but went with the Blazers instead because of the tougher conference.

    The sheer talent of Wall/Beal/Porter will probably ensure the Wiz will be alright, but I always feel like they're just not a good team.

    They're a 43 win team at best.

    Wall is arguably the best PG in the east so I think they will be OK.

    In the Eastern Conference? If everyone stays healthy, the Wizards are a top-4 seed.

    1. Boston
    2. Golden State (70+ wins again)
    3. Curry, one more time.
    4. Dallas
    5. San Antonio, I'm going to predict they miss the 8th spot on the last day and Dallas gets in.
    6. Kemba Walker to the Lakers for Lonzo Ball* and other assets but Ball is the main piece. Shortly before Christmas.

    *Kemba will thrive in LA and will resign with them, Lonzo on the other hand will greatly disappoint and his father will publicly call for Charlotte to trade him, they will to ? and will get nothing of value back.

    A pretty big if, and they kept losing to inferior competition. Wizards aren't that good, people. :laugh:

    If that last scenario happens I will sing your praises until the end of time.

    Our starters are fantastic and we haven't had a bench this good in like 20 years.

    But keep sleeping.

    They will only make that trade if Kemba agrees to a contract extension. Magic and LeBron already agreed they wouldn't make any quick fix trades.

    I am legit excited about the East this year.

    For once, we don't have the inevitability of Cavs/Warriors looming over the rest of the league.

    Eastern Conference basketball is fun again!

    realistically he should have been fired already or at least before he made that Anderson trade.

    Something must have happened behind the scenes. They've had all off-season to make this change and they do it with less than 10 days left before the season starts.
