Blazers all da way! We're gonna get by these other teams ahead of us in the West, make those playoffs, and bring home the bacon. RIP CITY BABY!!

Less than a third of the season to go? I don't think it's too early. It's almost guaranteed that CHI and MIA will finish top 2 seeds so you know they are destined to meet in the ECF. And OKC will finish 1st while LAL finish 2nd or 3rd, so they would also meet in the WFC if they take care of business. Plus, they're called predictions, so it's never too early!

If that happened, I'd be 100% down with it.

The West is going to be VERY interesting.... MEM and SA could shock a lot of people and go far. I honestly think that it's pretty wide open there.

I'd say its pretty wide open other than OKC winning the Western Conference

OKC vs CHI final. OKC takes it in 7 after Kevin Durant hits a half court buzzer beater in double OT.

No doubt. That's why I want people to lock in their picks now!

I wish. I just don't trust the Lakers' bench enough to pick them to win. I could see them making the finals though.

the lakers could have a first round exit or go all the way to the finals and either wouldn't shock me

Its weird this year because anyone in the West can win really if they get the right matchups, or conversely get knocked out in round 1 with the wrong matchups.

In the East its a bit different as it's going to be a collision course with CHI MIA inevitably going to be meeting up. The only team I can see even being a threat to one of them is NY if NY could ever get their shit together, but its too unlikely to happen.

I think everyone in the West wants to avoid Memphis at all costs in round 1. If Gay and Randolph develop good chemistry before the playoffs, they can make the finals.

NYK is kind of a wildcard but I don't think they'll pose a serious threat to CHI or MIA this season.... my money is still on BOS if I have to pick a 3rd team in the East. If (and it's a big if) they can get some consistent bench production and Pierce plays big they could surprise some people. They have the defense, the halfcourt execution, the coaching and the experience to get it done.

Orlando sometimes shows the potential to give Miami serious problems in the playoffs. I don't think they'll pull off the upset though if they meet.
