I'm hoping we'll have the home court advantage.

Realistically you're looking at a second place finish in the Atlantic and either a fourth or fifth place finish in the conference. It's not out of the question that Boston gets hit with the injury bug, and if any of their key guys are out for a prolonged period of time, I can see us competing for first in the division.

maybe, but one can hope, no? i do think orlando will fall and i do think miami will rise.. we won't hit 3, but for is not out of the question.. i mean, it is still the preseason, all hope is not lost yet!!

i see shaq, lebron and ziggy not getting along very quickly so i should actually have dropped them too...

yes lets all pump up our expectitaions so that if the team doesnt play thier best (which i think they will do great but who knows) we can look back again and see how we thought we were going to be third and in reality we end up 7-8....let not get to a head here. There is still a ton of work to be done. Now a lot rests on how good a coach triano is because a lot will rely on what he and the other assistants can come up with

I can see us somewhere in the 5th to 8th positions.

If we're lucky and the team gels really well, I don't think 4th is out of the question.

The better our perimeter defense is, the higher seed we will become. It's already clear the offensive potential of this team is completely off the charts.

As long as the team stays healthy, particularly Calderon and Bosh, we should have no trouble keeping to the top of the Atlantic Division.

i think we have a chance of making the Playoffs but i'd say we're lower-seeded below Cleveland, Boston, Orlando...

Seeing as the Raps are probably not done with the roster changes/additions id say they could end up as high as 4th(best case) or as low as 7th(worst case). Seeds 1-3 is gonna be too close to call and will probably depend on a teams ability to stay healthy. In general the east is going to be a lot more competitive and tighter

1- orlando
2- ceveland
3- boston
4- atlanta
5- toronto (only if they add rasho delfino & possibly pops)
6- washington (if the team stays healthy)
7- chicago
8- philadelphia
