anyone who has the nets ahead of the knicks is delusional. Joe Johnson really makes a team 20 wins better?

The Knicks have virtually no POST players, and NOW Amare is out, PLUS Shumpert is out as well. 2 Key Players. My pick for them that High is Amare making it back, IF NOT they will be fighting for 7th or 8th Seed, or Sitting home for the Playoffs.

meh I don't think the Warriors will make the playoffs. I think the Sixers will do better than an 8 seed

GS has a nice little team. If Curry and Bogut can stay healthy (big big IF), they will make some noise. Klay Thompson is going to have a big year I feel. Already one of the best shooters in the game. Harrison Barnes on the wing (if he's half as good as he is in 2k lol). David Lee is good for about 20 and 10. Off the bench they have Jack, Rush, Landry, Ezeli.

As for the second part, I think the Sixers are going to surprise some people. I'm not saying they will overtake the Heat or anything, but they can hang with the Celtics and any other team in the East. Even without Bynum, this team is better than last year's team. Jrue Holiday is going to have a big year.

this seems about accurate
 
# 19 MarvinOida @ 10/30/12 06:37 PM
Lol, sim Team = Portland.

Playoffs:
Attachment 51538

Using the regular rosters, the Kings make it to the 5 seed, Phoenix is 7, DETROIT is 5 seed, Washington is 8 AND ALMOST beat Miami, and Sacramento makes it to the second round beating the Spurs, and lost 2-4 to the Western Conference Champs, Lakers, while the 76ers beat New York, Brooklyn, Miami, LA as the 3 seed to win the championship.

MVP: LBJ
Rookie: Anthony Davis
6th: Jordan Crawford...
Finals MVP: Jrue Holiday

Oh, in this season, Portland had EVERYONE basically injured at least once, so this is pretty realistic...

They didn't have Lopez for most of last year either so it's not just them getting Johnson. If they're healthy I can see how some have them finishing above the knicks
