  1. Having the Heat not number 1 in the East is an absolute farce. Almost as much as having the Spurs in the top 10. No offense to San Antonio, but I believe the “glory days” are over (I’m sure there was just a tad bit of homerism somewhere in there, though). And Chicago at 5? Whaaa?

    And “a wealth of options off the bench”? What? Two guys that have yet to even step foot on an NBA court to play in a regular season game are supposed to be that vital to your team? If that’s the case, I sure as hell wouldn’t like my team’s chances. And one more thing, where the hell are the Nuggets at? As of RIGHT NOW, they still have Carmelo Anthony meaning they are a top 10 team (and better than any of the last 3 teams on the list, at least). Not a big fan of these…

  2. As the Fantasy NBA Champion, yes the Nuggets could of been seven on here easily, but I just decided to leave them off with the whole Carmelo rumors and with their Coach’s health issues which could lead to leadership and chemistry problems. When Carl was away last year their team was in disarray. I just didn’t put them on this list though they could of have been.

    Heat are not number one simply because they have not proven anything yet. Chemistry goes a long way and they just have names and numbers no history yet and therefore still unproven. That is why Dallas and San Antonio are on here. As for San Antonio, the Spurs had last season the most productive bench of the entire league with 39.3 points per game and I think it just got better. Ginobili, Blair, and Bonner got tons of minutes last year but you when you add a Luis Scola potential type player and a mid first round pick to the bench I expect the them to improve hopefully. Not to mention, they picked up shooter Bobby Simmons to add depth behind RJ. If Gee or Neal ever pan out then its a pretty good bench. No they haven’t played in the league yet but they both have high potential and that gives the Spurs a solid five players off the bench. Which I’d still say Ginobili, Blair, Splitter, Bonner, and Simmons is a good amount of options with experience. Not necessarily the most athletic but still were only talking bench here. The Spurs with their smarts, chemistry, and experience should definitely be on on this list.

    • Na, I think it’s fairly certain that they should not be on the list. They are a year older, and the league seems to have figured them out. I would say a 6-8 seed sounds about right in the West. Again, next time, try and make a list with your brain and not your heart. It works out easier that way. And ferp on the Fantasy Champion, LFMAO. Nice football team.

  3. League seems to have figured them out? Thats why Dallas beat the Spurs in playoffs last year right? I do think the Spurs are older but at the same time everyone on their team is healthy right now and I just don’t see them being out of it in the West. It will be a battle for the 5-8 seeds in the West.

    why the spurs will make playoffs
    as the fantasy basketball champion I think I would know
    – “I beat this guy Murph in fantasy trust me I know basketball”

  5. I do believe the Spurs are a top ten team tho. Im jus surprised not see the Thuggets or the Rockets getting any consideration here. Also Chicago at five? Yea, that has to be some kind of a joke…..

  6. The Rockets didn’t even make the playoffs last year? Their question is still with the health of Yao and even at that they have to make it in. However, they are a deep team which can be valuable with older teams in the league. If Yao is healthy they should have a very good chance of going but the West is tough.

  7. Thats a bold statement but that is always a question regarding their health. You can’t just put them up their yet unless they can prove it. Yao has to show that he can handle an 82 game season first before we just say their better than the Nuggets and the Spurs. His foot injury is what is forcing him to retire so I don’t expect him to play a lot of minutes. When healthy they are one of the toughest teams to face. I like their depth but we’ll have to wait and see what they can do.

    • “His foot injury is what is forcing him to retire”? What? Guess I missed something; I didn’t know that Yao was retiring yet. And, again, our depth is ridiculous, we’re deeper than anyone in our division outside of MAYBE Dallas (yes, that includes San Antonio), and I’m really not worried about Yao at all this year. Too many people get caught up with the Yao talk. With the depth we have at center this year, and it is quite a bit, I see him playing consistently and seeing this team easily eclipsing the 50-win plateau.

    • Haha, when is he retiring? I want to know. You said it’s leading to him retiring. I don’t see the guy retiring anytime soon. He could end up retiring because it’s time to hang it up, or he messes his back up or something (God, I really hope I didn’t just jinx the poor guy, lol).

  8. They are still the best team in Texas though lol. But this is basketball talk and that is why I didn’t have the Rockets in the top ten. They still had to prove they we’re a top team with all the tough competition in the West.

  9. The Rockets have, far and away, had the toughest schedule in the league up to this point. Hollinger’s power rankings on ESPN still have us 9th overall, lol, even at 1-5 (which is funny when you see he has the Spurs @ 13 because of their crap schedule up to this point). Also, it’s only 6 games into the season and you’ve basically already stated that the Rockets are cooked based on your past tense use of the word “had” in the last sentence. Dumb move. I’m going to laugh when they make their usual run and make the playoffs.

  10. “Had” as in refferring to ranking these teams before season started not saying their out of it lol. I’ll agree with the Spurs having an easy schedule but they are definately still a top ten team and that wasn’t homerism at all. Anybody can still make it but winning “50 easily” I don’t know about that in the deep Western Conference. In the Southwest division alone their probably at best the 4th best team and who knows Memphis might make a run with some of their young guns.

    • Frost, homerism was something I touched on in an entirely different post. So, I don’t know where the hell you’re going with that one. Nor did I ever say the Spurs had an easy schedule. And, I said we’d win 50 easily IF we stayed healthy. Guess what? Yao’s out at least a week, Brooks is out a month and Kevin Martin is banged up. That would mean we’re not healthy…

    • No, in the last comment you referred to the “50 easily” comment. That had nothing to do with what you said earlier.
