I'm not that confident in Denver's ability to make the playoffs. What do you guys think?

 

It'll be interesting to see how they play this year not having Iggy and Galli for large chunk of the season.

1. Miami

2. Chicago

3. Indiana

4. Brooklyn

5. New York

6. Atlanta

7. Detroit

8. Cleveland

 

(Although I think there will be a very open race for the last 2 playoff spots in each conference and it could be very different)

 

Coach of the Year: Tom Thibodeau

 

MVP: Lebron

 

DPOY: Joakim Noah

 

Most Improved Player: Not a clue

 

6th Man of the year : Lance Stephenson

 

Rookie of the Year: Victor Oladipo

 

All NBA 1st team: Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard

 

All Rookie 1st team: Trey Burke, Victor Oladipo, Anthony Bennett, Cody Zeller, Kelly Olynyk (I think Tony Snell and KCP both have an outside chance at knocking out Zeller depending on playing time for each of them)

Thanks for your input, my man.

 

I'm not confident in Denver at all but for some reason I don't think they'll drop from #3 in the West to #9 or worse.

 

And yeah, the Bucks are horrible so where you rank them is probably more accurate.

 

I don't think we're that bad, even though I really want a top 3 pick in the draft.

Yea I think the Bucks actually have a young core that could make a pretty awesome team (Antetokounbo, Henson, Sanders, Knight etc) someday but:

 

1. It's the Bucks

 

2. Right now that team is too young to beat anybody. And OJ Mayo is going to take hundreds of shots I'm sure.

 

As far as Denver goes, I just don't have confidence in them. They don't have a single All-Star on their roster. Lost Iggy, Corey Brewer and Kosta Koufas. They are "gauging the value of" Kenneth Faried and will Galinari be healthy ever?

 

And I think we're a bottom 5 team still.

I really like Zach Lowe, fun article. Obviously he's going to get it wrong a fair few times but I can agree with quite a few of these.

Would you like to get Kenneth Faried in a trade?

 

He's probably one of my top 5 favorite players right now but his defensive flaws are quite obvious. Considering we have Harris and there are a bunch of good Forwards in the upcoming draft it turns into a very interesting question.
