1. Clippers(because there is no fucking way the Rockets "tell me when to go" offense wins the WC or WCF!!) 2. Rockets (Fuck. I HATE them) 3. Warriors (because I cannot put them behind the Lakers, and I think they will surprise a lot of people) 4. Lakers (if they stay healthy and nothing weird happens, which always seems to happen with them lately) 5. Blazers (Dame will carry them again to a respectable record) 6. Utah (could threaten to take #3 or 4 spot if their season goes well) 7. Spurs (because the Spurs... but I could see them regressing a bit this year, maybe even not making the playoffs) 8. Nuggs (They were the young darlings last year, going to need a repeat or better to get a better seed than 7-8 this year) followed closely by New Orleans (who may even beat out Denver and SA), and then maybe Dallas at #10.
