    The time has come guys...Your Miami heat embarks on their defense of their WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.

    As for predictions...last year I nailed it at this time (picked Heat over Mavs 4-2) This year is a little tougher as I see a very tough Western Conference.

    I think the heaters win the East with little trouble this time around. I expect the Cavs, Bulls and Pistons to be the class in the East behind the Heat. The Nets STILL need big people and have not fixed their bench problems. They can surprise though as you will see with my prediction.

    The West is a 4 team race...but what a 4 team race....The mavs are the class...don't underestimate the shear talent that the Suns will bring though. The Spurs still have the nucleus that already won a title for them and the Rockets have YAO and T-Mac. If Healthy..the Rockets can be a surprise team here. I also love what the Kings are doing. The Nuggets are on the fast track to the toilet.

    For my predictions:

    The HEAT defeat the Nets (I dropped the Nets on 12/24) in the ECF's (4-2) to return to the finals.

    The SPURS defeat the SUNS in the WCF's (4-3) to make the finals.

    The finals will be a matchup of the last two winners....

    A classic battle that will have the Miami Heat REPEAT as CHAMPIONS. (4-3)


    As for the Heat's regular season record...I say 54-28 (1st in east)

    yeah, I think Walker will be more comfortable in the heat system and he should have big numbers here and there if Wade cant give the team points

    im a little worried about jason Williams health..it looks like he wont be ready until hes almost 100%..Pat said he want Jason to be close to 100% to play

    I want him to be 150% before he plays, I wouldn't rush him in so early. I say by mid-december, he should come back. This guy missed a couple of games last year because of his tendinitis. So it's important for he to come back fully cleared and fully healthy.

    He will be very important to us come postseason time, and I think our team can pick up the slack till then.

    Go Heat. Lets hope you are right again Section. I'd love to go to the AAA again to celebrate at a Championship Parade. It seems like I did that just yesterday. Wow, how time flies.

    I could see the Heat coasting through the regular season again with something like 52 wins, which may or may not be the best record in the East.

    But then, barring injury, they should be able to dominate the playoffs in the East and emerge as Eastern Conference Champions again

    Antonio Burks, who came to the Heat as a free agent from the Grizzlies, confirmed his agent has set him up with a backup plan in Europe should he not make good with his Heat non-guaranteed contract.

    Well, Section, your predictions are certainly to be respected, however, I predict the Heat will prove to be a disappointment. Shaq is another year older, and has absolutely nothing left to prove anymore. That means even more on Wade. Of course, if the officials baby him like they did in the playoffs last year, all bets are off. I look for Cleveland to come out of the East. It's LeBron's time. Wade's title will drive him and he'll will the Cavs into the Finals, only to lose to the....

    Mavs. They're ready. Howard will be even better and help take the load off Dirk. JT proved what he can do, and he can do it under pressure. Harris will be better after another year. I see them over the Suns in the Western finals. As for the Spurs, I think they are done. Sure they have Manu, Parker and Duncan, but after that they're weak. As for the Rockets, T-Mac will break down......again.

    Mavs will be champs.

    It is all on Wade...just like last year. But if you think Shaq can no longer average 20-10 then you're kidding yourself. He isn't what he used to be and even if he was the officials wouldn't let him do what he once did. But there is still noone that can match up with him in the NBA.

    You question his motivation? Shaq came into camp weighing 325 lbs. Shaq has never come into training camp in shape anytime in the past decade. That includes last year.

    It is unknown what you will see from the Heat in the regular season. The Heat will have to make it through a month without JWill. Shaq will miss his 15 and Wade his 10.

    Are you crazy? SHAQ has plenty to prove with all the naysayers that have come out of the wood work. SHAQ will be motivated enough to produce a 20-10 year and a first team ALL-NBA selection. That is enough to place the Heat firmly in the finals AGAIN.

    The Cavs? lol.

    Don't forget that Wade will be better also.

    1. Miami Heat
    2. Chicago Bulls
    3. Detriot Pistons
    4. Cleveland Cavaliers
    5. Orlando Magic
    6. Indiana Pacers
    7. Milwaukee Bucks
    8. Washington Wizards

    I guess i would change it to

    1. Miami heat
    2. Chicago Bulls
    3. Boston Celtics
    4. Detriot Pistons
    5. Cleveland Cavaliers
    6. Orlando Magic
    7. Indiana Pacers
    8. Milwaukee Bucks

    Heat over Bucks
    Bulls over Pacers
    Magic over Celtics
    Cavs over Pistons

    Heat over Cavs
    Bulls over Magic

    Heat over Bulls

    ***I am proably a little biased as Celtics are my 2nd team, but i just hate that divison. I can't see Toronto, NY, or Philadelphia doing anything and New Jersey, for me is to injury prone. With RJ, Carter, and Kidd its a good bet atleast one of them will get injured and they have no presence at all. I also really like the celtics youth and if they can take the step they could be decent. I like a lineup of Telfair/West, Pierce, Wally, Gomes, Perkins. With Rondo, Green, and Jefferson off the bench.

    I saw Antoine Walker in person the other day...and he looked fine.

    My guess is (for what I saw at a practice) that the fat guys are Doleac, Posey, and Simien.

    I think Payton is one....he was really struggling to make it through 20 minutes of preseason play. Posey and Simien are certainly possibilities. I don't know how you can tell if Walker is out of shape....he never looks in shape.

    Its going to be a happy day when Walker is off this team. I can now sympathise with all those poor Celtic's fans who had to put up with this for years. You would think that after a decade he would of figured out that hes a lousy shooter....he had a career year, and shot 43%. There are very few players that manage to score fewer points per shot than mr tip-toes.
