    Default Pacers Came in Second in the NBA GMs Poll for This Season
    NBA general managers are playing it safe with predictions this season.

    In a poll of all 30 GMs conducted by, the Miami Heat were chosen to win their third consecutive title, and LeBron James was selected to capture his second straight MVP.

    James would join Michael Jordan and Bill Russell with five MVPs. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (six) has more.

    For the first time in the 12-year history of the survey, Kobe Bryant was not voted the top shooting guard in the league. That honor went to the Houston Rockets' James Harden.

    The Orlando Magic's Victor Oladipo was voted most likely to be rookie of the year.

    The GMs also selected the Heat to win the title last season. This year, the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs tied for second place in voting for most likely team to win it all.

    I'm not surprised that the GMs predicted that the Heat would win the Championship again. I am a little surprised that the Pacers were tied for second place by the GMs. I would've thought OKC or even the Spurs or Clippers would've came in second place.

    I'm sure Derrick Rose will never forget this.
