Memphis because of their size is going to be a mother ****er for anyone. People are not giving them near enough credit.
The Lakers aren't playing good. Kobe taking 31 shots just isn't a good thing. I really think Phil Jackson is the only person who could handle that roster. Not sure that a 38 year old point guard with his recent injury history will make that much of a difference. There is a long way to go and they can turn it around, but I just don't like the competitiveness of that team with the exception of Kobe, Nash and MWP.
Miami is just coasting. They will be fine.
To me the best teams are the Spurs, Thunder, Grizz and Heat. The Celtics and Lakers could be tough come playoff time though. We'll see.
Agreed. I would throw in the Nets and Clippers as one of the best teams. I could see them both in the Conference Finals this year.
