Yes all of those teams have made significant upgrades and are good looking teams going into 2013.

The T'Wolves should be able to make a solid run.. I see them overtaking the warriors.

I'll wait until training camp to make predictions.

Yes all of those teams have made significant upgrades and are good looking teams going into 2013.

Wiz got some nice additions, but they are probably still a long way. Might get 30 wins.

Bucks made some positive moves, methinks, with a nice balanced team. Plus they were only 4 games out last year.

Seems like Chicago, Orlando, Atlanta, and Philadelphia are heading down.

Warriors? Eh, I'll stay safe and bet against them. They still have to go through Utah and Portland with Aldridge back. The Hornets might nab a few more wins, too. It's a tough Western Conference.

^ Washington is very improved, I don't know if they make the playoffs but I think they do much better than 30 wins. I'm just back from the gym so I'm not thinking too clearly but I don't know if I can name 7 teams better than them right now. Miami, Indiana, Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Milwaukee... I don't know.

Seems like everyone forgot about the 76ers...the Bucks didn't suddenly get better than a team that took the Celtics to 7 games....

Also, I like the Wizards, but I still think Chicago can make a run at the 8th seed...

ATL is a wildcard team that can either go 6th seed or they will completely fall out of the picture...

Orlando, im assuming will not start this season with Howard....so they are most likely not in the playoffs.

Also, don't be surprised if Minnesota goes as high as 5. They are a sexy pick this year....

Howard coming here and Bynum going to philly could change both standings..

My bad; I was basing it off a 66-game schedule. :man11: They should definitely get more than 30 wins next year.
