Great idea! So, maybe for the third page, predict wins/losses for every time? Or something smaller like teams coming out of the east of west? What do you think?

Well, I would try it with the playoffs seeding and/or playoffs predictions, but if there are enough NBA fans it could be done for daily games too. I'm not sure  how many people here follows the NBA tho

Around the Network

West:
#1 Spurs
My favorite team. And they are playing great as usual.. too bad Duncan looks older than ever and ultimately I believe they needed another impact player, but their chemistry and defense should be enough to get in #1 through the regular season

#2 Thunder
Two super stars. Decent role players, and have played together for a few years... don't forget that 2 years ago they gave a Miami a good run before losing in the finals.

#3 Rockets
Have started well and I expect things only to improve. They should be able to add a valuable piece from an Omer Asik trade which will solidify their #3 position

#4 Clipps
Haven't been impressed with their start but they a great coach and two stars. But I see 2 weak points: a reliable 3rd scorer and they lack a player that can go for 40+ points in a night.

#5 Grizzlies
slow start ... but they have the #1 or #2 defense in the league. Ugly style of playing but they manage to score just enough points to get wins

#6 Warriors
In my opinion, overrated. A solid team that won't ever sniff a championship as currently constructed. The spurs proved last year that they weren't as tough as some believed.

#7 Blazers
Have started great but I think they'll cool off a little... still young and should be better next year.

#8 Mavs
They have a great coach and Dirk still can have some vintage nights. But the rest of the cast is not as good as it used to be

East:

#1 Indiana
Deep team with excellent defense. Seems like they believe they can beat Miami if they have HC advantage so I think they will give their all through the season trying to achieve the #1 seed while miami may coast here and there.

#2 Miami
I expect them to threepeat as champions. I don't think they will push very hard through the season tho

#3 Chicago
very good defense.. super star player in Rose.. I'm scratching my head at their relatively slow start but have looked better lately

#4 Nets
Terrible start.. but most of the East teams are awful so they will finish #4th by default. They have plenty of talent but look really lost (and old) . Perhaps a more experienced coach would have helped.

#5 Knicks
All the teams besides the top 4 are really bad, but the knicks have atleast more talent than the others. Won't do much in the playoffs anyway.

#6 Atlanta
They usually compete but are unable to ultimately do damage in the playoffs.. but is nice that they will still compete despite not having much chances at a championship.

#7 Detroit
Things are getting ugly now. The pistons are a mess, but they have a very tradeable piece in Greg Monroe. Also, unlike most East teams, it seems that they are not interested in tanking at all ... that alone should be able to get them in the playoffs.

#8 Cleveland
Mike Brown won't tank and he can coach defense. Their roster is poorly constructed but they should be able to trade a player or two to get pieces that fits better. And they have Kyrie Irving
