Return of the Revenge of 29 Questions

1. Is it Showtime in Philly?
Aero had a great draft and is very solid as a GM. He's going to be playing postseason basketball, and could win the Atlantic.

2. Is Boston a legit top-drawer contender?
Hey Jude...you're a stud now. Celtics pushed it to G7 of the Finals. No reason to believe they're going to fall off that fast.

3. Can Miami make it back to the winner's circle?
Depth could be a concern, but this is a team built for the playoffs instead of the regular season. As long as they get in, they're going to be a tough customer.

4. Have the Knicks turned the corner?
Knicks are ready. Caramel and the Twin Towers will be enough to get them into the playoffs, and stars can carry teams once they get there. Don't sleep on the Big Apple.

5. Will the Magic be playing post-season basketball?
Omer has a decent team, but needs a second scorer to develop with Tyler. Probably a 5-8 seed.

6. When are the Nets going to put their plan in place?
He did it...Brian's a contender again. Nice use of his assets to make the Nets relevant again. Not a title contender yet, but much better.

7. Is the Bullets window closed?
Not much depth behind Cashman/Russell in a loaded East. Yeah, it's gonna be tough.

8. Will we Fear the Deer in the Finals?
I think so. The Bucks are loaded across. They will be a tough out. The experience of losing last year helps Prince identify a few issues that he should have fixed this time through.

9. Can the Bulls win the whole thing?
Yeah. Tough competition in the Central, but this Bulls team is loaded. Probably the favorite overall, but the Bucks will make them earn it.

10. Does Cleveland Rock?
Roturn is doing good things in Cleveland. Unfortunately, so are a lot of other Eastern teams. Maybe one more impact player and they'll be talked about in the upper tier.

11. What's next for the Hawks?
For a franchise who set the bar high (3 titles), it's going to be different in Year 2 Post-Caramel. BJ is acquiring assets, but I don't think this is the year.

12. Will there be a playoff team in the Motor City?
It should be. Plenty of talent, but DC will be the key. Can Detroit score enough with 2 low-volume starters? Remains to be seen.

13. Did Porn press the right buttons across the Pond?
This is my first look at the Raptors. Fringy playoff team who needs to figure out who the go-to guy is. Could make it in, could be in the lottery. OG is still a solid lead guard, and Walker can still score.

14. Could it be Shark Week all year?
Possibly. The destructive force of VLJ is a sight to behold. Pencil the Sharks in as a top half seed for the next several years.

15. Where are the Hornets now?
Gary's done a great job getting himself relevant in a short period of time. Only weakness could be on the blocks, but there's a ton of talent here.

16. Can AllRim put his Grizzlies in the playoffs?
This reminds me of some of my teams. It's the island of mismatched toys. Those are tough teams to win with, but AllRim has a shot.

17. What do we make of the Jazz?
KJ made a solid move in trading Matchechowski, and he's the most loyal GM to his players in the league. Lot of 3 balls, and defense as an afterthought. Yeah, that's a KJ team.

18. What is Goulet thinking with the Thunder?
In my silly prediction of the season, Goulet wins the West. Yeah, I said it. Starting lineup is supremely talented, so it's on Goulet to use them correctly.

19. Will there be a Rocky Mountain High in Denver?
Kevin is starting to get into the conversation. A wing scorer would put them into rarified air, but right now a 5-8 seed.

20. Will Duck Season involve playoff games this year?
Absolutely. Maybe even opening at home. Very good team with a great GM. I'd take my chances.

21. Can San Antonio represent the West?
Scdn nuked last year's 57 win team. He got Dre Byers. That's usually a good thing. He'll be a contender.

22. Did I brick on the T-Wolves earlier?
Vuchato has always been tough for me to figure out. The stranger his DC, the better he does. He's got the talent to last awhile out West.

23. Does Diss finally make the jump?
When I've been high on the Blazers, I've been wrong. That said, there's plenty of talent here, and Grubbs was a stealth pickup. I don't think they're top of the heap, but a playoff run wouldn't suprise me. The Warriors being gone doesn't hurt his feelings either.

24. Will Generation X lead to another Clippers title?
MemphisX is solid, and his team is good. I don't think they're at the level they played at last year, but I wouldn't take them lightly.

25. Are the Lakers the second best team in LA?
Yeah. Lakers will be a study in defense, but how much offense is there? Kenneth is very good at postseason DCs, so if he gets there, look out.

26. Are the Sonics ready to be Super?
I don't see it this time. Need a scorer to replace Gilchrist, although Jaxon does help the D quite a bit. Probably a 95 point a night team as constructed.

27. Is it Sunrise in Phoenix?
Zei will be better. Count on it. Probably need one more offseason to get into the conversation though.

28. Are the Lions the Kings of the Jungle or Secondhand Lions?
Probably the most well-rounded teams in the West. This is my choice if the Thunder don't win the West. Built like an Eastern team, this will be a very tough Finals matchup if they make it out of the West.

29. Will Lexington be Kings or Queens?
This team is bad. Like, Cadavaliers bad. Traded Dre Byers for the rebuild effort, and "Spurs East" will struggle mightily. OK on D, but an offense that doesn't scare anybody. .500 is probably out of the question at this point. As currently constructed, 25 wins will be a stretch.
