THE TOP TEN Projected NBA Basketball Teams 08-09 Reg Season
With Bynum back, this team will be unstopable.
Lebron was one game away from bringing the Cavs (the Cavs!) to the finals again. The Celtics will slip aloowing him to do it this year.
New Orleans Hornets
CP3 + Tyson Chandler + David West = SW Division Champs
Consistency is the name of their game, they'l be able to dominate home court to get them the number 4 spot.
Playing over 100 games will wear on a team with Allen, KG, and Pierce. They still have Allen, KG, and Pierce, and play in the East, which should give them the 5 spot
San Antonio Spurs
They're getting old and broken down, but still good enough to beat any team in the league
Incredible run at the end of last year, their chemistry is coming together. Dwight Howard will be the most dominant big man in the East.
New Coach, new season, same winning formula. Their starting 5 is still the best 'team'.
If Yao and McGrady can stay healthy, then they could be even higher than this. But when is the last time both played 70+ games in the same season
Portland Trail Blazers
My sleeper pick with their ridiculous amount of young talent. They almost made the playoffs last year with Greg Oden, who people forget is going to be a future hall of famer.
