ESPN.com's predictions (the number on the side predicts the win loss-record):
1. Lakers 62-20
2. Spurs 54-28
3. Trail Blazers 52-30
4. Nuggets 51-31
5. Mavericks 50-32
6. Jazz 47-35
7. Hornets 47-35
8. Suns 42-40
Outside looking in team (9th seed): Rockets 35-47
With the exception of a few minor tweaks, I pretty much agree with these predictions. However, I truly believe the Warriors will make some noise next year in the West, but ESPN.com has them winning only 31 games next year. Yes, Steven Jackson wants a trade, but so what? It's not like the Warriors won't get someone good in return if a trade were to happen. In my opinion, I think the Warriors young core may blossom into something special.
About a month ago I posted my own Western Conference predictions. Be sure to check them out.
