Post Most Likely to win the 04-05 Ring

Who's your pick?
I'd like to see the Wolves or the Heat grab it this year (out of these choices), but if I had to put money on it, my pesos would ride on the Spurs.

Its to early to tell. who do i Want to win is the Knicks but that most likley wont happen. I mean you really cant tell yet with teams like Utah and Seatle playing really well. If I had to pick right now though id probably say Spurs.

Well you can never REALLY tell until it becomes obvious during the course of the Finals. It just becomes easier and easier to predict during the course of the season.

I'm thinking Spurs or T-Wolves. Both teams have superstars, experience, and a good nucleus. I'd like Detroit to repeat, and they could, but they lost a couple important bench players they are missing (Atkins, James, etc.).

Chucky Atkins was never on the Detriot championship team. Atkins was in Boston.

I voted other, I fairly confident it won't be any of those teams. Their are going to be lots of suprises this year. I really like the Grizzlies, the Nuggets, Mavs, 76ers do to really well. I predict Memphis as NBA champions.

I can almost buy Memphis, Denver, or Dallas but not Philly. I am a Philly fan and even I can see they just do not have enough talent to win the title this year. I really cannot see Memphis either word is that Hubie is starting to lose his grip on this team and when that happens you typically end up with a 35-40 win team which is about what they are playing like right now.

I won't be a team coming the East. I don't even know if two teams will be above .500 in the division. It's so weak. All those teams actually have a chance to win the division.

Well, they said the same thing last season and look who ended up with the big gold basketball. The East is slowly closing the gap.

I'm surprised I'm the only "other" This is not going to be a season where favorites will win. Many surprieses will occur. Memphis is just a team that I really think will surprise. they may be 3-6 but its still early. The Mavs are looking very sharp. The Sonics are a fluke and The Spurs are way overrated, I guarentee they will not be NBA CHAMPIONS this year.

Not the Eastern Conference. The Division. The Celtics are on top with a 5-5 record.
