    A healthy Indy imo challenges for a top 3 seed in the conference with all the movement that occurred. People forget that team was on a torrid pace before Oladipo blew out his ACL. They still had a remarkable year given that, and they got better with Brogdon.

    East:

    1. Bucks
    2. Sixers
    3. Pacers
    4. Celtics
    5. Raptors (Still a pretty solid team without Kawhi but they're likely cannon fodder within the first 2 rounds)
    6. Nets
    7. Heat
    8. Pistons

    West:

    1. Clippers
    2. Rockets
    3. Jazz
    4. Lakers
    5. Blazers
    6. Nuggets
    7. Warriors
    8. Spurs

    One of the main reasons they did good without Oladipo is gone. And Bojan >>> Brogdon. They will still be a very good team for the Eastern Conf with that replacement though.

    West:
    1. Clippers (best all around team in the league imo)
    2. Rockets (same team but they replaced a past prime CP3 with a prime Russ - watch out for Houston)
    3. Nuggets (Jokic is gonna be an MVP candidate and the whole team got some valuable experience last year; don’t sleep on Denver)
    4. Lakers (35 year old LBJ will take it easy in the RS and AD might too given his injury history; the playoffs will determine how great this team really is)
    5. Jazz (Great all-around team but they’re still missing the “it” factor imo)
    6. Warriors (once Klay gets back, they’ll be a force once again)
    7. Blazers (they’re a great team but the west is just too damn stacked for them to do much damage imo)
    8. Spurs (a lot of teams in the running for the 8th seed but when you’ve made it for over 20 years straight, you get the benefit of the doubt)
    On the line: Kings, Mavs and Pelicans

    East:
    1. Bucks (Giannis got more experienced, rip to the rest of the east)
    2. 76ers (they got a bit worse imo but with Kawhi in LA, philly should be a lock for the top 2)
    3. Celtics (they also got worse but since the east also got worse, I can see Boston as the 3/4 seed)
    4. Pacers (depending on Oladipo’s health, the pacers should be a lock for the playoffs)
    5. Raptors (losing Kawhi sucks but the east sucks even more, hence the raps should still be a solid playoff team)
    6. Heat (adding Jimmy along with the development of some of their younger players should be good enough to get the Healtes back in the playoffs)
    7. Nets (no Kd for the whole year hence I see Brooklyn as a 6/7 seed)
    8. Pistons (idk there’s something about having D-Rose and Blake Griffin on the same team that makes me hella nostalgic so I’ll put them as a playoff team)

    On the line: Magic and Hawks

    They aren't. I'm telling you all kawhi severely impacted this team ability to repeat. The North is dead.

    I can confidently say that the Hornets chances of making the playoffs in the west are exactly 0%.

    Almost the same in the East too.

    Agree on West. Their chances of making playoffs in the East is less than 10% IMO.

    1) Denver
    2) Utah
    3) Houston
    4) Golden State
    5) Los Angeles Clippers
    6) Los Angeles Lakers
    7) Portland
    8) San Antonio

    East
    1) Philadelphia
    2) Milwaukee
    3) Indiana
    4) Boston
    5) Toronto
    6) Miami
    7) Orlando

    Call me crazy, but I don't think the Brooklyn Nets led by Kyrie Irving are going to make the playoffs even in the god-awful Eastern Conference.

    What the hell are you talking about? Did you miss the news that "scary" Terry Rozier is on the roster? He would have been a lottery pick this year, Mitch Kupchak said so.

    Hornets president Mitch Kupchak: Terry Rozier would’ve been lottery pick if in 2019 draft

    We're going to the playoffs alright, and by playoffs I mean the lottery playoffs!

    :sarcasm:
