The Chicago Bulls were a perfect example of how a team can develop through the season and playing their best basketball when it matters: the playoffs. The challenge for them is to start where they finished last season and with them being the Bulls, this won't be easy at all for them. First of all, we have to understand that last season was a good season for them, despite finishing the regular season with a 41... Read more

The Los Angeles Lakers didn't disappoint last season, as they accomplished what they had promised: the championship. They were the second best team in the regular season and in the postseason, although some unexpected letdowns against the Rockets, the Lakers never lost consecutive games. The Lakers look now to win consecutive championships, something that no other team has achieved since?the Lakers. On paper... Read more

The glory days where the Phoenix Suns were one of the powerhouse clubs in the league are now gone and by sending Shaquille O'Neal to Cleveland for basically nothing, the Suns are just trying to hang on the tough Western Conference. However, don't think that they are in rebuilding mode right now because the Suns are still trying to accomplish good things, otherwise they wouldn't have re-signed veterans Steve Nash... Read more

The Golden State Warriors were the Cinderella team in the playoffs a couple of seasons ago, but since they lost Baron Davis in the free agency to the Clippers, they weren't able to make the right move for the franchise. They put their future on the hands of three players: Monta Ellis, Corey Maggette and Stephen Jackson and there are doubts that this core of players can carry the Warriors to high standards. Last...

Last season the Sacramento Kings were the worst team in the NBA with a 17-65 record and they are officially on a rebuilding mode that will take them some time until they can be a top team. Right now, the key word is the development of their young players. The Kings helped the Bulls last season by sending Brad Miller and John Salmons to them in a clear sign of reconstruction. For this season, the Kings have a roster... Read more

The Los Angeles Clippers were by far the most disappoint team last season by winning a miserable mark of 19 games. They had high expectations with the signings of Baron Davis and Marcus Camby but soon they showed that those expectations wouldn't be matched by starting the season with a 4-17 record. Several players couldn't stay healthy during the season as Baron Davis missed 17 games; Chris Kaman missed 51; Marcus... Read more

Before the start of last season, the Orlando Magic were already considered a top team, but few believed that they could reach the NBA Finals. However, Orlando enjoyed a terrific regular season and then, they beat the Celtics and the Cavaliers in the Playoffs to go the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995 and just the second time in franchise history. They had a 59-23 record in the regular season, but they could... Read more

The Atlanta Hawks are a model of maturation and development in the last few years, as their progress is evident and unquestionable. When Mike Woodson arrived in Atlanta in the 2004/2005 season, the Hawks finished the season with a 13-69 record - a 15% winning rate! Then, the Hawks progressed year after year: 26-56; 30-52; 37-45 and finally, last season, 47-35! Last season I predicted the Hawks to have a successful... Read more

The Miami Heat were one of the brightest surprises last season due to their brilliant season. I remember that they were coming from a 15-67 record in the previous season and with a rookie head coach and two rookies receiving plenty of minutes, the Heat were able to finish with a 43-39, behind the stellar play of a healthy Dwayne Wade. For this season, Pat Rilley didn't make any substantial movement to improve the... Read more

The Charlotte Bobcats had last season their best season of the franchise, but it wasn't still enough for them to earn a spot in the Playoffs. Head coach Larry Brown did a good overall job in tough conditions at the start of the season. I remember that the Bobcats went winless in the preseason, then Jason Richardson got injured very early in the season and the team only improved when they traded Richardson to Phoenix... Read more
