OK so let's get out the crystal ball and predict who will sit where come playoff time.

I'd like to see who everyone thinks will sneak in the playoffs, etc.

You can explain some of the tough choices.

My prediction:

Eastern Conference

Heat
Bulls
Knicks
Celtics
Hawks
Magic
Pacers
76ers

Wild card: Bucks

Western Conference

Lakers
Thunder
Grizzlies
Spurs
Mavericks
Clippers
Trail Blazers
Nuggets

Wild card: Warriors


Bulls and Heat can go either way, Bulls added Rip Hamilton which makes them even better. Wild card was tough to choose between Bucks and Bobcats but adding Stephen Jackson to the Bucks makes them slightly better, even if the Bobcats added Walker and Biyombo, can go either way.

West is shaking up! You have to put the Lakers on top but expect the Thunder and Grizzlies to go up in the seeds. Grizzlies beat the Spurs as the 8th seed without Rudy Gay! Mavs are a dif team this year, still tough but slide them down. Watch the Clippers! Warriors have the talent but the Nuggets have a better team chemistry for the 8th seed.
