With NBA teams now in training camp I guess its as good of a time as any to look at it. Some optimism in Portland for the first time in awhile. I think the Blazers are a playoff team this year (but not a true contender). They had one of the worst benches in nba history last year, but its been overhauled and should be pretty good this year. At the very least this team should be really fun to watch and will put a lot of points on the scoreboard.

PG: Damien Lillard, Mo Williams
SG: Wes Mathews, CJ McCullom
SF: Nic Batum, Dorrell Wright
PF: Lamarcus Aldridge, Thomas Robinson
C: Brooke Lopez, Meyers Leonard

As for the rest of the league, I pretty much just assume that Miami is going to win it all again.

It's crazy what David Stern has done to my NBA interest. I recognize 2 of those names and one is because he played in the Pac-10. My family had season tickets from 1977 until they left and I loved the NBA and now have zero interest. Good luck to the blazers this year.

I'm pretty stoked to see the Warriors with Iggy. Interested in the Brooklyn experiment. And, yeah, I'm rooting for the Rockets. So?

Where's Babbit?

:snack: Cleveland is my sleeper team if Bynum is healthy, also be on the lookout for the Wizards and their ugly ass uniforms, they're building a pretty tough team.

The Heat got issues with Indiana, if Oden is truly healthy and can sustain health I give them the edge over Indy just off the strength of LeBron, but they barely survived the Pacers last season.

Westbrook will be sorely missed by your Oklahoma City Thunders. Pacers look good, and I like Doc Rivers to make a winner out of that Clippers team. Wizards, damn. If Lee can stay healthy, they are scary.

Want another Heat wildcard? Beasley.

I'm with ya on the Wiz and Cavs. Cavs will get relevant right in time for a certain free agent.

If Knicks suck, which they might, Melo being traded could happen.

Good call on Clips. I'm stoked to see Doc run that squad.

When is Westbrook expected back? I had forgotten that he was hurt.

I really think the Timberwolves will improve this year, and the Nuggets will decline. No real solid evidence to back that up, I just like the Wolves lineup and think it's about time for the nugs to lose a bit. If the Nuggets compete this year, then Karl has to be in the GOAT discussion. Same applies for Pop and the Spurs. Surely last season was the last hurrah for the Spurs? No?

Oden has a chance to become sort of the Brandon Weeden of the NBA. He's older now, and could contribute on a good team.


Westbrook is expected to miss 4-6 weeks of the regular season

Beasley is a fn douche bag, I wouldn't root for him if you held a gun to my head. They interviewed the guy who wrote about him for SI a few weeks back on ESPN radio, and he was with Beasley at a hospital for kids with cancer, and he said the entire time Beasley was putting down the kids and making fun of them for having no hair. He's a pile of steaming crap.

I don't see the Knicks being terrible, but they just are not built for playoffs in the East with teams like Indy waiting for 'em. Knicks just can't bang down low with those guys, and adding Andrea Bargnani isn't going to help that at all, never seen a 7 footer who's afraid of banging down low like him.

This is where they differ with Miami, Miami plays small but they aren't afraid to get their hands dirty with those teams like Indy and Chicago.

OKC Will be fine, they still got Durant, and they'll get Westbrook later on. Houston might be a power, but I don't believe in Jeremy Lin still, and think he'll be their down fall against guys like Westbrook, CP3, Parker, & Curry. Blazers look great on paper, I still like the CJ McCollum pick, and the Thomas Robinson pick up, The Dorrell Wright pick up is going to be money, Luke Babbitt never panned out for them as the sharp shooter, Wright is that guy.

Is Karl still in Denver?

And, good call on Oden being the Weeden of the NBA. Is it true Oden's Durants biological father?

JSeahawks, quit dodging the question; where's Babbit?

AGREE on Wolves. And they'll be a blast to watch too.

You didn't know that until Babbit signed there.

Wolves may replace the 2012-13 Warriors as most entertaining new, "legit", team to watch.

Nice to see that NBA hack, peaches, left us men to discuss ball. He told me yesterday he really thinks Adelman will do well in Houston.

I was unaware about Karl.

Sonic, that's really weak, but I expect nothing less from you. Miami will have some trouble with Chicago (Rose will be back) and the Pacers. if the Knicks can figure it out, they have a good team over there, same with Brooklyn. Like Throw, I think the Cavs are a dark horse this year to make some waves in the East.

I don't think NY will figure it out unless they come ready for the street fight the Pacers, Bulls, and even the Nets will bring. Miami would be the same way except they do have a little nastiness to them plus all world talent on the wing and back court with LBJ, and Wade. Also these upcomers in the East are nothing to be nice with either, Washington has a very nice young squad who at any time this season could put it together like the Thunder did in mid 2010 when we saw them rise up as the power we know now (yeah that felt dirty), also the same could go for Toronto.

Nets brought some toughness in when they brought in Garnett and signed Andrei Kirilenko, that team is built to claim "we run NY" and to go at the Heat, I think age will be their down fall though.

Detroit is rebuilding, but their front court has the potential to rival the Memphis front court with Drummond and Monroe, I'm interested in watching how that team develops.

What I'm trying to get at here is the Knicks are soft, and I have 0 appreciation for their style of ball, nor do I have the interest to watch 'Melo chuck the ball at the rim 50x a game.

Hey, I agree, I DO NOT like the Knicks, but they have a lot of talent on that ball club and if they can figure out how to use it right, they'll cause trouble in the east.

Yup, Knicks are soft, which is why I think it could fall apart on them in a hurry. And, if they do early, Melo gets put on the block, I bet.

For whatever reason, I have a sneaking feeling the Lakers rebound a tad. That could be my Mamba bias, him and I both like to leave Denver blondes with internal bleeding.

CJ McCullom broke his foot. Good to know the Blazers curse is still alive and well.

Gonna be that guy for a second, and make a slight correction to the OP.

It is Robin Lopez, not Brook. (Though the Blazers would look real nice with Brook instead)
