Although the regular season is usually meaningless, unless your jockeying for playoff spots i cant wait to play either one of them. All of a sudden Miami gets Shaq and they are annointed ECF. Although he is dominant doesnt mean he can win with below average role players. If we do like Detroit and let Shaq get his points/rebounds and we stop everyone else there is no reason why we couldnt beat them.
OTOH Detroit should be at the top because of there championship year. I would love nothing else but to play the Pistons the first game of the season everyone healthy and ready to go. Just let it all hang out or play Detroit when we have similar records preferrably both teams having no losses. I think Detroit has a team that can win it again, but with our team being healthy we will give them a better run next season. They lost a lot with Okur im not so sure Mc Dyess still have anything left on those bad knees.
