And after they do, it will be one of those deals where "folks in the know" will be saying that they should have seen it coming when you take a good look at their roster.
I tend to think that you need the starting five to take down a conference. We will see which Dwight they get.
I don't see how they're going to beat the Clippers.
That's how I see the west ranked right now. I could be totally wrong, but I've never liked Memphis and I just don't see how Dallas keeps up this year.
I know I have OKC high, but Durant is the second best player in the world right now, and I refuse to put him lower than third.
