    As I said before, the Bucks are the best offense in the east by a good margin. They have scorers, outside shooters, passers, and speed at every position. When they catch fire, they can beat anyone.

    However, this is a very, very poor defensive team, especially on the perimeter, whihc keeps holding them back. You can't just outscore teams in May and June.

    This team should be a playoff team again, they haven't changed much. If TJ Ford returns healthy, thats an added bonus.

    The teams in bold are playoff teams:

    Detroit Pistons- 62-20
    Indiana Pacers- 55-27
    Milwaukee Bucks- 45-37
    Cleveland Cavaliers- 42-40
    Chicago Bulls- 34-48

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I'm pretty confident that Ford will be hurt all season. So I say they are a playoff team. So contender I guess.

    Indiana Pacers - 62-20***
    Detroit Pistons - 60-22***
    Cleveland Cavaliers - 48-34
    Milwaukee Bucks - 42-40
    Chicago Bulls - 33-49

    ***16-18 easy wins in the Atlantic alone, not to mention the 4 from the Bobcats

    Thanks Anthem, I haven't slept well for a couple of nights.

    D4G, what happened to the 60-20 Pistons? Did they take a draw for two of their games?

    That sucks about Charles Rogers Kstat, I was looking forward to watching him play this year.

    Ford's still out which hurts them. With KVH, Mason & Redd they can score but they won't be much better than last year IMO.

    Pretender, but probably a playoff team in the EC.

    I had them as the 4th best team in the East, with Ford.

    Doesn't look like he's gonna play much, if at all this season.

    They're a playoff team but without TJ they won't advance.

    Pretender. They fell apart at then end of last year. Redd is a solid player to build a team around, and they have some decent role players, but get rid of KVH!!!

    Perhaps if Ford returns soon, they could do better than I predict...

    Indiana Pacers - 61-21
    Detroit Pistons - 60-22
    Cleveland Cavaliers - 42-40
    Chicago Bulls - 41-41
    Milwaukee Bucks- 39-43

    They won't be as strong as last year, might not even make the playoffs. They're a far better team with Ford running the point.

    Pacers: 60 - 22
    Pistons: 54 - 28
    Cavaliers: 44- 38
    Bucks: 40 - 42
    Bulls: 34 - 48
