      I like your EC rankings, but can’t figure out why you’re so high on the Mavs and T’Wolves since they both will be missing their best player for an unknown amount of time.

    Brutal that we have to suffer through losses in both the WCF and the finals… That’s going to be rough.

    For the West…

    1.OKC – West Champs until further notice.
    2. Lakers – Too talented to fail?
    3. Spurs – Will win a lot of games, but will crack come playoff time.
    4. Clippers – Overhyped. Overrated.
    5. Grizzlies – Will they be able to keep Gay and Randolph healthy?
    6. Nuggets – A nasty team to play.
    7. T’Wolves
    8. Mavs – Anything better than 8th will be an over achievement.

    No way we the Grizz will lose to Miami, I can’t see Miami being too much better than they are now. Miami need to worry about NY. I’m confident the Grizz will beat the okc’s, spurrs, I’m more worried about the nuggets, hawks, these young teams have a lot of energy and nothing to lose
