Well, I guess I should get a crack-a-lackin' on my 2006-2007 official picks here. I'll post the standings for each division, then the overall conference, then the playoffs. Under each major categorie I will put notes in that fade-quoted font thing.
Lets go (note my heavy Laker bias):

Eastern Conference

Atlantic Division
1. Toronto Raptors (50-32)
2. New Jersey Nets (48-34)
3. Boston Celtics (45-37)
4. New York Knicks (29-53)
5. Philadelphia 76ers (21-61)

As much as I would love a freak trade that gets Bosh to the Lakers, I'm lovin' this Raptors' team. Bryan Colangelo doing to this team what he did to the downtrodden Suns. Mix of veteran foreign and young American talent=win for them. Nets not that far back, a solid but not spectacular team. The Celtics could have a decent season. Hopefully Rajon Rondo will get a lot of fantasy production. Then we arrive to the Knicks and Sixers, they have the possibility of being the two worse teams of all team. I was generous so I gave them more than 8 wins. But....

Central Division
1. Chicago Bulls (54-28)
2. Cleveland Cavaliers (49-33)
3. Detroit Pistons (48-34)
4. Indiana Pacers (42-40)
5. Milwaukee Bucks (38-44)

Ben Wallace to the Bulls creates a tremendous power shift in the division. The Bulls with a lot of key role players now have a superstar that dominates in their arsenal. Ben Wallace puts them over the top- the Pistons have a struggling year, and the Cavs do well for themselves.

Southeast Divison
1. Miami Heat (52-30)
2. Orlando Magic (45-37)
3. Washington Wizards (44-38)
4. Charlotte Bobcats (33-49)
5. Atlanta Hawks (30-52)

Miami at the top because- well they're Miami, Orlando 2 because of what pepeatumi hassaid, Wizards 3 because of their shooting, Bobcats 4 because they're better than the Hawks, who are 5 because its a franchise running deeper into the ground.

Overall Standings
1. Chicago Bulls
2. Miami Heat
3. Toronto Raptors
4. Cleveland Cavaliers
5. Detroit Pistons
6. New Jersey Nets
7. Orlando Magic
8. Boston Celtics

Eastern Conference Playoffs:
Round 1:
Chicago Bulls over Boston Celtics in 4
Orlando Magic over Miami Heat in 7
Toronto Raptors over New Jersey Nets in 5
Detroit Pistons over Cleveland Cavaliers in 6
Conference Semifinals:
Chicago Bulls over Detroit Pistons in 6
Toronto Raptors over Orlando Magic in 5
Conference Finals:
Chicago Bulls over Toronto Raptors in 7

Well there you have it with the East. Clearly I'm high on Chicago and Toronto.

Western Conference

Southwest Division
1. San Antonio Spurs (53-29)
2. Dallas Mavericks (50-32)
3. Houston Rockets (44-38)
4. New Orleans Hornets (41-41)
5. Memphis Grizzlies (40-42)

Houston w/ Yao and T-Mac healthy=possible playoff spot. Memphis w/o Pau=no playoff spot

Northwest Division
1. Denver Nuggets (46-36)
2. Seattle Supersonics (45-37)
3. Utah Jazz (40-42)
4. Minnesota Timberwolves (38-44)
5. Portland Trailblazers (30-52)

More like, Northworst division...lololol I'm so witty

Pacific Division
1. Phoenix Suns (52-30)
2. Los Angeles Lakers (48-34)
3. Sacremento Kings (47-35)
4. Ana- I mean, Los Angeles Clippers (45-37)
5. Golden State Warriors (35-47)

I hate the Clippers, they do bad. Lakers, they do well. Sacremento has a good team w/ Artest for a full season.

Overall Standings
1. San Antonio Spurs
2. Phoenix Suns
3. Dallas Mavericks
4. Denver Nuggets
5. Los Angeles Lakers
6. Sacremento Kings
7. Seattle Supersonics
8. Los Angeles Clippers

Western Conference Finals:
Round 1:
San Antonio Spurs over Los Angeles Clippers in 7
Phoenix Suns over Seattle Supersonics in 7
Sacremento Kings over Dallas Mavericks in 7
Los Angeles Lakers over Denver Nuggets in 5

Clippers aren't that bad, they can push it to 7. Mike D'Antoni is a capable regular season coach, but is not a great playoff coach. It takes them 7 games to understand teams, or they lose. The Kings have a decent enough team to win.

Conference Semifinals:
Los Angeles Lakers over San Antonio Spurs in 7
Sacremento Kings over Phoenix Suns in 6

Reasons I've said above for Phoenix's loss. I guess the Kings make the cf by default. A great Lakers vs. Spurs rivarly adds another chapter, Kevin Garnett is going to have a big series for the Lakers after being traded to them midseason (j/k, but I'm too much of a diehard Lakers fan).

Conference Finals:
Los Angeles Lakers over Sacremento Kings in 6

Clearly I'm on some sort of drug here

NBA Finals
Chicago Bulls over Los Angeles Lakers in 7

And you thought I would pick the Lakers
The Lakers were my fan-based pick, my sane side- all 1% of it is saying the Spurs lose in the finals.
Note, I put quite a bit of time in this, more than I do in the other sports- except football.

Whoops, forgot:
Individual Awards:

Again, note the Laker bias

Executive of the Year: John Paxson, Chicago Bulls

Unless the Lakers get KG, in which, Mitch Kuptchak would be exec. of the year- unless Jerry West retires from Memphis, Mitch pulls a Rudy TJ, and the Lakers hire West- and if that happens, the Lakers will win every title from here to the day he dies.

Most Improved Player: Kwame Brown, Los Angeles Lakers

He'll half to be, if my picks come true

Sixth Man Award: Andres Nocioni, Chicago Bulls, if he starts then lets go....Luke Walton
Defensive Player of the Year Award: Ron Artest, Sacremento Kings
Coach of the Year: It'll either be: Scott Skyles, Chicago Bulls-Phil Jackson, L.A. Lakers- or Eric Mussleman, Sacramento Kings
Rookie of the Year: I was thinking Rudy Gay, then I thought Jordan Farmar (as collateral from my picks), but in the end I'm going with Saer Sene, Seattle Supersonics

Unless he gets sent to the D-league, in which case the order of my thoughts come into play

MVP: Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers

Its the ocho times treso

42 point win. What was that a college game.

So far so good on my predictions.

Doesn't matter now, I guess. This Laker team can win without Kobe. Imagine what they would have done to the Suns with him.

Oh, and speaking of my predictions. Replace every mention of the Denver Nuggets with the Utah Jazz (and vice versa). I'm feeling something...

How about some Lamar odom, going nuts agaisnt Phoenix? I've said this before but I'll say it again... Lamar Odom is a walking triple double.

Props to Bynum to for playing well, LA may have found its center.

Farmar is also going to the D-League.

"For all the fascination with Jordan Farmar -- his knack for the game is definitely hard to resist -- the Lakers are going to resist. Kurt Rambis put it about as plainly as it can be when he said Farmar is more likely to play extensively for the D-Fenders of the NBA Developmental League this season than the Lakers.

"If Shammond Williams is healthy, and Sasha Vujacic is healthy and Smush Parker is playing, it will be hard for him to crack the rotation of the guard position," Rambis said."

And damn what a blowout yesterday...worst loss by a defending champion on opening night.
I couldn't watch the Lakers/Suns game, though...it was too late.

BTW NBA Fluffers was submitted to the portal and I thought it was pretty funny, you should check it out.

Pounded. Everyone looked great for the magic and almost everyone contributed. Grant Hill looked like his old self which is bad news for the rest of the league and Dwight Howard... Well, he was Dwight Howard.

And in Boston, Chris Paul is doing his thing... 20 points, 10 assists and 6 boards. Alos a couple of surprised, Utah is beating up on the Rockets 56-38 to be exact and the Bucks are winning in Detroit, and here's the kicker, guess who got ejected in the 3rd Quarter... Rasheed Wallace!!

Gee, I didn't see that coming.

Wow! Thats pretty good for Paul, but I don't see them being a playoff calibur team, this season. Peja isn't as good of a shooter as he was four years ago.

I'll say although Peja had a big basket to guarantee the win he shot 4-15. Its a shame Boston lost, Pierce had himself one hell of a game 29 points and 19 boards.

As for the rookies, Foye did nothing and Morrison scored 13 although he shot 5 of 13, so far Brandoy Roy has looked good against Seattle.

And the Knicks are up to their old tricks as they blew a 19 point lead against Memphis and are now heading into OT. Rudy Gay has 15 points and 5 boards, including some key buckets in the 4th quarter.

By knocking down open treys and by remembering that he has a post game. Q is better than he showed last season, he's not 35 points a game good, but he can get 20 on any given night, its just that well.... He plays for the Knicks.

The Jalen Rose sweepstakes appear to be over.

The winner? Phoenix.

According to his personal blog at JalenRose.com, Rose has chosen to play in Phoenix after being courted by the Suns, Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons.

The office of Rose's agent Arn Tellem confirmed to the Associated Press that the posting was correct, but the Suns said they had yet to hear from either the player or agent.

Rose, who received a $14.5 million buyout from the New York Knicks, reportedly had narrowed his choices to Miami and Phoenix. The Heat could pay more than the Suns, who offered the veteran minimum of about $1.2 million, much of which is paid by the NBA.

Ahahaha, the Suns. That's humorous. He'll fit in like I'd fit in on the Suns. He's not fast at all and the Suns are an up-tempo, fast-paced offensive team. He'd be much better suited in Detroit, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Pistons fan, either.

I'll agree, he should have gone to Detroit and again not because I'm a Pistons fan, but because Jalen is from Detroit and he played his college at Michigan.

I disagree when you say he won't fit with the Suns, he's a shooter and Nash will find him when he needs him. Rose just has to knock down open jump-shots.

Hey its my Collateral Effect of Predictions Postulate. If, in order for Team A (in this case, the Lakers) to do well, then Players X and Y (and however many you wish to use, in this case X is Kobe, Y is Kwame) must do well. Therefore, if Team A does indeed do well, then you could summize that Players X and Y also did well.


Also: Stop being a fanboy, the Clippers are playing better than the Lakers this year. Yeah I said it, I'll go there. Elton Brand, mofo.

Okay, since they haven't played each other yet (and even when they do in the reg. season, Phil isn't a reg. season coach- so expect losses), we'll go by either A) Record, or B) Common opponents. Lets look at both, shall we?:
A.) Lakers: 2-0
Clippers: 1-1
But, fair enough, its only the first two games of the season and so one can say that one team had an easier schedule, so lets look at common opponents:
B.) Lakers: 1-0
Clippers: 0-1

And its all without Kobe. Seriously, the Clippers are the most overrated team since Notre Dame.

Utah yes, Detroit no.

Lakers won, thanks to the amazing play of Ronny Turiaf, and now they are 3-0. Best in the league suckas.

Phil Jackson, 69-13 season anyone? Nah, they're probably just going to throw away 20+ games to make it interesting.

I know its early in the season, but the Lakers just like a lot better than last year. And the best thing? Kobe didn't shoot as much last night.. Then again, it was just one game.

Watched the Sixers' game, earlier. Was a good ass game. Kyle Korver shot the lights out from long distance and Iverson had a double-double with both over thirty points and ten assists.

I was watching that game and I've been wondering, is Shaq hurt? I'm pretty sure he didn't play today. As for Korver he's been shooting the ball so far he also had about 20 points in their previous game against the Magic, it seems he plays better when he's coming off the bench.

I was watching a couple of games actually so I missed that. I was also watching Magic-Hawks and Toronto-San Antonio.

It was a terrible loss for the Magic, only Carlos Arroyo and Grant hill came to play and Joe Johnson just went nuts and dropped about 33 on them.

That game was horrible. I couldn't bare to watch it. No action. I saw a few shots made by Joe Johnson that looked impressive. Other than that, it put me to bore.

Well, I'm a fan of the Magic and of Arroyo so I decided to watch it despite the fact that at halftime the Magic had less than 40 points.

I'm hoping the Lakers win tonight, once more. I'm also hoping Odom has a great game(lol fantasy league.) Hopefully, he can get atleast twenty points, seven rebounds, and eight assists.

Its weird, I couldn't stand the Lakers when they wn their titles a while back, but as soon as Shaq left and more people started to root against LA I became a supporter (not a fan) of the Lakers. They've been playing great and if last game is any indication it looks like Kobe finally gets it.... He can't win without his teammates.

After talking about how great the Lakers have looked so far, what to they do? Not much... After three quarters (and an Earl Watson buzzer beater) the Lakers are losing by 23 to the Sonics.

That's what I get for praising the Lakers.

Link plz.

But, I don't understand people hating and liking teams based on how the win. I just pick a favorite, root for them and hate all others. Of course, I'll hate rivals more than others, but if one team finds a way to win- good for them (as long as it wasn't against my favorite team). I just hate it when people pretend to be "true fans" of my team.
