I am out there as well... Boston being less than expected, Philly being less expected, my final darkhorse of Detroit started to show but with Knight on and off on back spasms, and big D also off...not this year. Look out next year when they shed Charlie V and get another "player" of any sort.
My quote early on that the Bucks had a better team than the Raps (season beginng) looks right on but I didnt back it up with my prediction
Ahh hindsight is 20 20.
My original darkhorse pick was Washington. JohnW may not in fact be the man to build around - be interesting to see what Washington decides in the off season. Nene is a keeper and probably Beal, but Okafur, Ariza, JanV are all parts likely to move in the off season.
