    Maggette averaging 27 or 28 PPG this year?

    Dude's not even going to be the Warriors' leading scorer, trust me...

    Hollinger is a tool.

    We make the playoffs over the Heat and Wizards? I don't know about that.

    I mean ... I guess so. I don't see how you can put anyone over LA until they get beat, especially with Bynum back. Same goes with Boston in the East. What has LA done wrong? Or what has Utah done right to be better than the defending West Champs?

    Miami and Chicago are lower because they play 6 more games according to Hollinger.

    The East isn't weak this year, so I doubt a lot of teams will even hit 50 wins in the West. And Boston ain't winnin 60 games this year. I don't understand how Philly is 3rd in the East. LOL. Cause of Elton Brand? Raptors got a better squad than them. I do believe Indiana will get the 7th seed

    Ah, that was my mistake. Edited the original.

    I will credit Hollinger for taking on the daunting task of predicting # of game wins for each team. The number I'd be interested in: His calculated odds that his predictions are correct.
