    PHOENIX SUNS will be the surprise team of the WEST! MAVS, WARRIORS, BLAZERS won't make playoffs!

    was thinking about the hornets and g-state but i think the suns will make the biggest leap and be the surprise team. talking 5th seed here. that team just feels  right, a nice flow to it. michael beasley for one, scola as another. now they have jermaine o'neal walking thru those doors. when healthy, the guy produced in boston (on defense and energy). plus i like their role pieces in telfair, frye and dudley. the coach has his guys now!

    "Mark from CT" - thought you were leaving permanently. Your apologetic last post was appreciated. Please consider not returning, as your myopic Laker troll perspective added absolutely no value and I'm sure there are better things you can do.

    I hope you didn't put them in power order.  We both know the best team  in LA is the clippers.  Our Lakers have a  chance to be at the top with this list of teams.  Pretty weak and its only getting weaker.

    Sportsbook in Vegas updated odds for winning WCF after acquiring Howard.

    Los Angeles Lakers 6/5
    Oklahoma City Thunder 9/4
    San Antonio Spurs 6/1
    Los Angeles Clippers 12/1
    Memphis Grizzlies 15/1
    Dallas Mavericks 20/1
    Denver Nuggets 20/1
    Houston Rockets 50/1
    Utah Jazz 50/1
    Portland Trail Blazers 50/1
    Minnesota Timberwolves 50/1
    New Orleans Hornets 50/1
    Golden State Warriors 50/1
    Sacramento Kings 50/1
    Phoenix Suns 50/1

    These are the people in the know, the experts that put their money on the line. I don't buy what the oddmakers are now saying about the Lakers. Remember, they predicted that the Lakers would beat Boston in 2008. But look where they placed the "almighty Suns."

    Re: PHOENIX SUNS will be the surprise team of the WEST!

    sorry folks, contrarian meant to say WESLEY johnson and michael beasley.. I LIKED THAT TRADE and that signing, GOT MY THOUGHTS jumbled. always liked both their games. think BOTH could flourish within the suns system. i judge teams from 1-8, not just the strating team or 2 or 3 stars.. at this point goran dragic is overall a BETTER player than nash. in fact he was outplaying him before going to houston.

    dragic plays better defense and has a very diversified game. any wonder they went out of their way to get him back? his stats will be BETTER than nash's this year! he could also make the all-star game. he's a star, that team wil score points. so lets see: gortat-beasley-scola-goran-johnson. with the likes of JO-PJ TUCKER (a true steal)-frye-telfair-dudley. yes, dud is STILL with the suns! thats a pretty STACKED lineup. 1-10, this team gels really well. they may not all be household names but they flow very well!

    Peop;e too impressed with the lakes team.I believe they will be  about the same or less then last year team.In my opinion they exchanged centers.One with bad knees for one with a bad back.And they added a 39 years old no defense good open floor point guard.The rest of the team are just average role players.Kobe will demand the ball,Howard will cry for the ball,Gasol will be upset because he will have to run in order to touch the ball.I d,ont understand why people are ready to concede the seasson to them.Let play the seasson first.Go celtics.

    Surprise surprise Commie the clueless can't put his thoughts together properly to make a point.... and fills an already ignorant premise (lotto bound Suns barely have a shot at the 8 seed let alone the 5) with errors that turn him into a buffoon.

    Thanks for keeping us all amused even as you waste our time with this drivel CC, at least it isn't racism or Hollywood gossip like we're used to from you.

    1. OKC

    4. Grizz
    5. Clippers
    6. Nuggets
    7 and 8 - 2 out of Jazz, GSW, Mavs and Wolves

    Suns and Rockets are clearly lotto teams

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: PHOENIX SUNS will be the surprise team of the WEST! MAVS, WARRIORS, BLAZERS won't make playoffs! : The Grizzlies lost OJ Mayo and you have them at 4.  Laughabale
    Posted by GoGREEN![/QUOTE]

    Ignorance at its finest... the Grizz were in game 7 of the 4/5 seed matchup a year ago with Randolph out half the year and still hurting putting up a 13/10 in the playoffs when he returned. Such a prediction is based on Randolph being the 22/11 force he was in '11.

    Bayless and Ellington will more than replace the 'backup both guards' role Mayo had while likely not being pouty team cancers who shoot 27/29 % in close playoff series.

    Denver and the Clippers are better as well. Assuming guys like Randolph and Griffin are healthy those 3 teams are EASILY going to befighting for the 4-6 seeds the way OKC, LA and SA will fight for seeds 1-3. And I always give the slight edge to size, # of all-stars and PG play, which is why I drop Denver to 6.

    So easily to use facts and stats to poke holes in the fly-by drivel posted by the clueless

    wow.. ME and rim-me have actually found something to agree on.... the griz! presuming that randolph and gasol stay healthy along with tony allen and rudy gay, this team will be an incredibly hard out. they let mayo go for they have in-house cheaper alternatives who actually play better defense. mayo was horrible everytime he went for the bread in the playoffs.

    You are right, as  Laker backer I am extremely happy we have this 1-2 year window because things look awful from then on.  You should be happy as a Celtic fan, it seems with your pickups and your draft picks you are set for a long run. We do have to contend with the Thunder and the Clippers.  I am very worried that those teams point guards already have dates circled on when they will play against Nash.  It will kind of be like playing the JV.   We will battle them though.
