    Who do you predict will win the championship?
    No idea. I think it'll be up in the air this year. Something will derail both Miami and LA.

    That seemed to be the case with the Lakers the past two years. Last year it was Artest imploding and before that Pau being weak.

    I seriously doubt that they can make the finals 4 years in a row. I'm going with OKC in the West.

    i see no reason to think the lakers wont make the finals and i dont think okc has the personnel to beat them

    id take the spurs over them but i dont think la will face a serious challenge

    If Chicago lands Carmello, which is a long shot, I think they'll be the team to beat in the East.

    I don't think Chicago can afford another star player w/o letting anyone go.

    That is true but who can Chicago give for a trade that will equal Carmelo?
    Unless Denver is going to accept Deng plus scrubs for Melo, I just do not see it happening.
    If I were Denver, I wouldn't take anyone less than Rose for Melo, maybe add Deng or Noah with Rose.

    First, no way that Chicago would give up Rose. Second, Denver is freaking out that they'll end up with nothing just like Toronto and Cleveland did. They have very limited options at this point and none of the suitors really have much to offer. They're better off taking a pu-pu platter and some picks than getting nothing at all. If Chicago offered Deng, Heinrich, and a couple of #1's I think they'd jump at it.

    Yeah they would. But I dont foresee Chicago doing that either. It's a shame because Carmelo there would be good. I dont even know if Carmelo wants to stick around in Chicago ...since he's from NY.
