Thoughts: --Unsurprising to me that the Heat have been unanimous picks to win the Eastern. It's such a dropoff to the next tier of teams. It's theirs to lose. -Fifth seed seems high for the bulls. I could see the 8. -26 wins for the Magic? Not happening. -Nuggets #2 in the West? Not sure it'll happen but I'd be giddy. -Two have Wolves in the playofs, ther other one game out. One game out's not so bad. It means that the injury problems won't prevent us from competing all season and with a week to go we can play for our own destiny. I think we all trust our chances when it actually gets down to that scenario, especially if everyone's healthy. -I was surprised to see the Hornets so low, especially with Suns so high. I asked Matt moore about it and he said the Hornets' offense is terrible. What does everyone else think?
