Jfoxtail final

1. Miami
2. Boston
3. Indianapolis
4. Philly
5. Brooklyn
6. Chicago
7. NY Knicks
8. Detroit
9. Atlanta
10. Toronto
11. Washington
12. Milwaukee
13.Cleveland
14 Charlotte
15.Orlando

Having seen the energy Detroit is bringing I am giving them the 8th and final. They also get more in division games verses Cavs, Bucks, and could shock the Bulls early on i.e. before DRose comes back.

Washington was my preseason dark horse - and I still think the team has an upset role to play but it depends on when JWall comes back and how healthy.

9 - 10 - 11 - 12 could all be separated by 1 game. Toronto suffers more than most playing more in division games head to head verses 76'er, Nets, Knicks, and Celtics.

Toronto 38 wins !

Last call before season starts

Bump:

3 things playing out very early that may upset the list.

1) Bynum not playing and even when he does - will take time to gain chemistry with the 76ers. I am pretty sure they will be there soon when he is in the line up tho...

2) Danny Granger now out for 3 months in Indy. Yikes they need him a lot on that team. They may platoon to cover or trade but Indy will have some challenging times.

3) The Knicks are better than advertised without Amare. But it is early and the strife circus has yet to set in and Amare will be back. That actually may be one and the same observation.

3 things playing out as expected....

1) Your Toronto Raptors....

2) Nets are improved. JJ in Brooklyn adds to the whole team. Lopez seems to be a beneficiary as he has room to score and rebound.

3) Miami....

It's still very early.. But for my own list I think the only one that has been significantly impacted thus far has been my prediction of Indy because of the Granger injury. Everything else looks to play out somewhat close to how I expected it.

Bump early days...

We had discussions on Toronto and their relative position vis a vis Washington, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Atlanta. Teams at the "bubble 9th" that might be competative... I posted a summary from Bleecher report.

Well....

My Washington dark horse looks really bad as a prediction at 0 -7. Unless John Walll really does mean that much to the team when back, Okafur and Ariza were wasted trades. These guys seem in coast mode till Wall is in the lineup.

Detroit has 1 win albiet in a tough schedule to start the season. Looking at how close some of the losses are and the energy of the team - look for the Pistons to grab a few wins - perhaps starting with the Raptors ? Brandon Knoight has to find his shot and progression.

Bucks - better than predicted.

Hawks - meshing well.

Christmas Season check point... approx 33% of season done.

Clearly my expectations of the Wizard/Pistons dont look good now. Be interested to see what difference Wall will make.

NYKnicks more consistent than I thought (I hate the Knicks and always seem to mis judege them). Buck surprising me as well though I did note in thread that the Bucks team looked at least as good as Raptors pre-season.

These were my predictions.

So far 7/8 teams I predicted to make the playoffs are in. BUT, I never adjusted my post-Bynum trade predictions so oh well. I'll have to live with that one.

Also I probably reached a little by putting Boston as a 2nd seed just based on what we saw in last years playoffs and what impact I thought adding Terry/Lee and getting back Jeff Green and Avery Bradley was gonna have. But I still don't expect them to stay an 8th seed. I expect them to finish maybe 4 or 5 when it's all said and done.

My final picks in red two posts above.

I think we are all "out" on Celtics - some of us out on Philly.

Celtics will probably make a player move near deadline and I fully expect them to climb the charts.

76ers are different. Even if Bynum comes back the whole offense will change around Bynum and they may not climb. A soft schedule will help Drue Evans et al more in the immediate term.

I was sadly mistaken on my Wizards darkhorse team preseason but I adjusted after I heard Wall was out extended. Doesnt look like even if Wall this team is as functional as supposed.

Pistons starting to perform as I expected.

Knicks / Bulls / Nets seem to be "where most" expected. Atlanta still competative.

Bucks I think are the big team everyone had wrong. I posted a bleecher report blurb indicating how good they were but still underestimated them. Further though they may not be able to sustain their position given turmoil.

Yeah, I potentially underestimated Milwaukee by putting them in that 11th seed. And I put Philly in 4th I believe assuming they still had Andre Igoudala and no Bynum. I can't really say they're underachieving, because they pretty much lost their best player for nothing and don't even know if the guy who was supposed to play for him is ever gonna suit up for them.
