Hedo Turkoglu breakout
Danny Granger breakout
The New Orleans Hornets breakout
The Orlando Magic playoff bound
Chauncey Billups resurgence
The Indiana Pacers playoff bound

I've got the Pistons winning 50-55 and making the Conference Finals.

Kaman will end up with 17 and 11 per or something close to it. Maybe a little more depending of what happens with Brand.

Haywood will end up with 8 and 8.

Celts will top the East. Not sure if they'll top the Spurs or Mavs in terms of wins, though.

Clips wont make the playoffs.

Turkoglu will finish with 16ppg. Not sure if that's a breakout.

Granger will go close to 20per.

New Orleans will make the playoffs, providing they stay healthy.

Orlando will also make the playoffs.

Billups has been one of the better guards in the league for the past few seasons. This will continue.

Indiana will finish with about 38 or 39 wins and sneak in.

no believe me, i understand the attraction. did my undergrad in chicago and then moved to tucson for about a year. retarded # of people living in a desert and trying to pretend that its ok to build a bunch of water thirsty golfcourses and lawns. Gonna be a real problem in the next 25 years or so (it kind of already is when the rivers in the area have had the water table drop on them over 100 ft in 100 years). have fun with that

Charlotte's looking pretty good this year. Felton's play has improved drastically, Richardson is proving to be the scorer they were looking for. Add G. Wallace and Okafor to the list, and they have a nice starting lineup if they can pickup a center along the way.

All I know of Piston is, back then, they were a strong strong team to beat. They were defensively minded which forces low scoring games. They were the team that made Spurs pissed their pants in the finals. Really really tough.

its because of the bench. they will only look more impressive once stuckey and amir johnson get going.
