Great defensively, balanced offense, and one of the best closers in the game in Paul Pierce.
Lethal offense with multiple scorers on the perimeter and superman inside.
Lebron and Shaq will figure things out, but once LBJ has no supporting cast.

Rose gets better and better every game.
Dangerous on offense, but poor defensively.
Dwayne Wade will carry the Heat into the playoffs once again.

Kobe has a lot of help as this is probably the best team he has been on in his career.
Billups is one of the best pg’s in the league and Melo will be an MVP candidate this year. They also have a great supporting cast.
Parker, Duncan, and Ginobli have played with each other for which seems like forever. New addition Richard Jefferson has to find his role.
Great young core of players that will only get better with time, and Brandon Roy is a great closer down the stretch.
Deron Williams is the most underrated point guard in the NBA, and the Jazz have good role players and great team chemistry.

Lowry and Budinger have emerged as potential big time players in the future, but without Yao the Rockets won’t go anywhere in the playoffs.
