1. Dallas (55-27)
2. San Antonio (50-32)
3. Houston (48-34)
4. Utah (45-37)
5. Minnesota (43-39)
6. Memphis ( 38-44)
7. Denver (20-62)

Utah, Minnesota, and Memphis can all be interchanged....if Donyell Marshall leaves Utah, then they won't be 4......I put Minny at 5 cause of Billups leaving, I just dont think their team is that good.....

Memphis will suprise alot of people. Last year we had more injuries than any other team in the NBA. Our starting SG was out for the whole year along with our starting C. Battier, Swift, and J-Will were all injured for at least 10 games. Next year -

PG - Jason Williams/Brevin Knight
SG - Micheal Dickerson(Is better than you remember)/ Battier
SF - Battier/Gooden
PF - Gasol/Gooden/Swift
C - Wright/Gasol

yeah, I love Memphis, and I think they will make the playoffs in a few years.....but our division is too good. I predicted them to win 38 games, that's pretty good, dont ya think? They, like Houston, have a VERY young nucleus and will be good in a few years....

You also forgot about Wesley Person, he can contribute.....I think they should trade Swift and Dickerson(as much as I love the guy) for a better SG, then they'd be set....

Here's my Midwest predictions....

Dallas (58-24)*
San Antonio (56-26)*
Minnesota (50-32)*
Utah (43-39)*
Houston (42-40)
Memphis (27-55)
Denver (14-68)

Teams with an (*) next to their record are the teams that I think will make the Playoffs.

That lineup isn't even close to making the Playoffs.:no:

Memphis will win around 30 games. I don't think their lineup has chemistry. Their top 3 players are all forwards and all 2nd year and 1st year players. There's no way a team like that can make the playoffs.

i think 45+ wins for the rockets is a little over-ambitious even for a diehard rocket fan. look for them to improve to a 30-35 win team and in contention for the playoffs the year after.

so you're saying they'll improve by a whole 2-7 games over last year? If everyone stays healthy, they will win at least 40....Heck, we won 28 last year with our general out(we won what, like 2 games while he was out), our starting PF AND starting SF out for the year.....
