No real suprises there.

I think however Shaq will peg the Cavs back a bit & the Celts will win the East.

& even though he may not win it due to his team not being top 2 Dwayne Wade is the best player in it & my MVP!

It's hard to go against the Lakers in the East but Spurs look like they are ready to pounce again & maybe Dallas can produce something as my smokie!

I have to mention Orlando in the East. They are better than last season so it will be who can stay healthy.

It starts today - bring it on!!

Orbit I agree, Dywane Wade is the best in the league, and deserved MVP last year. Lebron and Kobe have much better teams around them, and without Wade Miami are nothing, whereas the other two teams would still make the playoffs.

without Lebron, Cavs are nothing too. if healthy I can't see how he won't get the MVP. championship in my mind will obviously be LA.
