Didnt you say the Cavs were a playooff team with out Lebron?

No, I said they were a mid-30 win team without LeBron.

The #8 spot in the East is up for grabs though, and it's very possible that they contend.

I see them contending for the #1 pick

I think it is pretty evident now that Lebron was behind ALL the success in Cleveland.
Cleveland has the worst record in the NBA and are not even competitive in their losses.

It's definitely looking like you were a lot more correct than I was on this. They've had some injury issues this season, but the turning point was the game against Miami. They looked like a below average team before then, but not terrible. They were 7-10 at the time, and playing the solid defense they always played.

Since that Miami loss, they're 1-18. This is a team that simply gave up. I've caught about 3 of their games since Miami, and they're not every trying, which wasn't the case last year. This isn't the same team that LeBron had around him last year, in terms of effort.

I don't put much stock in the preseason. Orlando is 7-0, which is nice, but so is Memphis.

With Orlando, I see Jameer Nelson, a solid but unspectacular point guard who can't seem to stay healthy. Rashard Lewis and Vince Carter declined last season, and both aren't getting younger. It's pure speculation, but I can't see both of them holding up for the whole year.

I'm not a Q-Rich fan -- poor defender, chucker. Duhon is OK for what he is -- a floor manager, nothing more. I like Pietrus and Ryan Anderson. IMO the bench is below average -- some solid players but nothing that pops out to me.

Clearly, there is enough talent to win 50+. But I just see them taking a step back this year.

The Boozer injury is a blow to Chicago but when he's back, I like that team.

First off, Redick, Anderson, Gortat would start for most teams...so starting there alone I don't understand. We arguably had the best bench in the NBA last year (Lakers) again...and Q-Rich fits perfectly in our system. Only downfall to him is he isn't AS good of a defender as Barnes. Outside of that, um..Redick had talks of STARTING over Vince Carter this year if Carter didn't step up..but now Carter has had a full season in our system and has been pretty damn good so far. Finding his way to the basket. And don't even get me started on Gortat...I feel so bad for the guy. He's a starting C anywhere else in the NBA. Pretty much ANYWHERE. Jameer's last time he was healthy was a All-Star PG..always been a shoot first PG. And bringing in Chris Duhon brings a change of pace..good assist man. Oh, and yeah..Lewis is going back to his natural position SF..where he last scored 22.4 PPG at. With arguably the best starting lineup in the NBA, and a VERY deep bench (Redick, Anderson, Richardson, Pietrus, Duhon, Gortat, Williams, Orton) I just do NOT understand how the Bulls with Boozer starting the season hurt and adjusting to a completely different system is going to out of nowhere pass up Orlando. But, as before...to each their own.

hahaha, I like that passion. Way to back up your team. I respect that.

We'll just see how it plays out. I've got nothing personal against the Magic.

Redick and Anderson would start for most teams?

I did pretty good on the Orlando thing...till they made that trade. But I had the right idea

We'll just ignore me having Charlotte and Cleveland ahead of the Knicks.

the worst part of it all is they will probably have the worst record and end up with the 4th overall pick.

Also this draft doesnt have a consensus #1 pick, the Baylor kid is looking good....

That game was like a dude being dumped by a super model and then not being phased by dating 8's or 9's until the super model walks by and destroys the current girl. Dude then goes into a stage of depression of what he lost, over drinks, grows a gut, never shaves, and rarely showers.

That's an awesome analogy.
