AGREED!!!

No love for my Mavericks. But I believe they will quietly make some noise. With 2 of the best young players in the league. The NBA is now all about "Dynamic Duos".

Thinking the Lakers will be much stronger than anticipated...do not believe the Clippers will beat them. Kahwi benefited from many injuries on the Warriors...he is a great player, but maybe lucky last year?

Inmates are running the asylum in the NBA now. Much prefer the NHL where you actually have to build a TEAM!

It takes luck to win a title.

The Miami "Superteam" won 2 of 4, and without Ray Allen's shot may have gone 1 for 4.

Dirk 2.0 and Dirk 3.0 gonna light it up.

People are sleeping on the Mavs, but if what Kawhi did with the raptors, and what Jokic did with the Nuggets shows us anything, its that you dont need an all star team to compete. If the Mavs supporting cast can hold their own, it will be a fun season for sure.

I wouldnt sleep on the Clippers and I definitely wouldnt expect the world from the lakers.

I see lakers being the 7th or 8th seed and the clippers being a top 3 seed.

Kawhi is a stellar player that can win it all without another superstar (See Toronto) and now that he has Paul George? Look out.

Lakers have an aging and falling apart Lebron, AD and nothing else. We will see if the extended down time for Lebron this last season gives him some new legs and see if he can stay healthy all season.

I would say the safe money is with you, but the Lakers were 4 this year with just LeBron before his injury. AD, the starting shooting guard from Toronto in Danny Green, Boogie Cousins, Kuz and a much better supporting cast who can actually shoot.
The Lakers appear to be better than you might think and if they were to pick up Igodala, second to no team in that division, methinks. It should be a fun season in LA, regardless.

Agreed!!!

Lakers got marginally better with the addition of AD and Green. The Clippers were already a Playoff team and now have the best player in the NBA and another very capable wing player.
Every knowledgeable analyst have them winning the West and possible Finals with Philly and Bucks battling it out.

Houston has now added Westbrook and have to be in the Top 3 West.
Dallas is my sleeper team and have a deep bench too. I see them in Top 5.

They will win some regular season games, no doubt. But they are still too inexperienced. If they can keep those two together, add some more shooters, in a few more years they will be something to worry about deep in the playoffs.

Kawhi had a sniper in Green, a future superstar in Spicy P, a consummate pro in Gasol, and Lowry and Van Fleet played out of their minds as well. And then there is the whole no KD except for a few minutes in one game, and Klay was on the way to pushing it to Game 7 before his ACL..............so all the "Kawhi is the best player in the game" stuff is a little much at the moment.

Denver getting Jerami Grant from my Thunder will be a huge help to them as well.
