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
of all, we have to understand that last season was a good season for
them, despite finishing the regular season with a 41...

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

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...

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 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...

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...

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

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...

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...

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
