    Ya basically and not sure on the MVP. Thinking one of the MVP is from the Warriors since they'll go 81-1

    I don't see the Trailblazers having the talent to be 5th in the West.

    As much as I don't want to say this but Golden State is prolly going to take it this year over the Cavs. I mean if Draymond wasn't suspended who knows maybe they would've won. But now with the addition of KD Warriors look even stronger then before.

    we're still lacking a good legit center, but obviously durants a huge upgrade over barnes, but at the same time lost depth with barbosa, ezeli, speights, and rush.

    I think they will still win the championship but will have a worse regular season
    they won 44 games last season they can probably improve on that this year with the same roster that is only going to get better as they are all still young. plus they brought in some depth with ezeli and turner

    Again I haven't looked at rosters or anything but lillard really seems like the only player capable of carrying the blazers.

    Nah they have only gotten better from last year. The have the second best guard duo in the Western Conference after Curry & Thompson. Also as Laich said signing Festus Ezeli and Evan Turner is some nice depth. Also guys like Myers Leonard, Noah Vonleh and Mason Plumlee are only getting better. Besides Lillard they don't have a second superstar, yet McCollum still could turn into one...but they got good depth all around.

    I would be completely shocked if the Hornets can make the playoffs after the disaster of an offseason that they had! How did 5 good players all need a contract in the same offseason!!!!!!!! How to ruin a team 101!
    My prediction is GSW in 6 games :/

    I think the lakers are gonna do better than most think this year with Kobe off the team and their future is really bright.
