Two more weeks! So basically I'm categorizing teams into different tiers.

CONTENDERS:
-Golden State Warriors: Defending champs. Plain and simple. Andre Iguodala will be used in a bigger role. The only issue they may face is if Stephen Curry has a post-MVP hangover.
-Cleveland Cavaliers: Probably would be defending champs if Kyrie and K-Love were healthy. They've had a year to grow together as a team, probably the favorites to win this year.
-San Antonio Spurs: Age doesn't kill the Spurs, at least it hasn't yet. Lamarcus Aldridge is a major addition.
-Chicago Bulls: How long have we talked about the Bulls being a contender without them delivering? A long time... Jimmy Butler is going to light defenses up, and Pau Gasol sould continue to put up good numbers in the high-post. Derrick Rose is not as vital to this team as he was back in his post-MVP years (2012-2014) as Jimmy Butler has really stepped it up. Fred Hoiberg has this Bulls team looking like an offensive force, but the defense will not be the same. (Sorry for the long recap, the Bulls are by far my favorite sports team)
-Oklahoma City Thunder: KD is coming off of a year taken away by injury. He and Westbrook can form a deadly 1-2 punch thta may lead OKC to at least the WCF. He needs to focus on OKC, though, and not free agency.

ON THE RISE:
-Milwaukee Bucks: The most exciting young team in the NBA. Jabari, MCW, Giannis, and newly added Greg Monroe may give the Bucks a real shot at at least the second round, if not the ECF. If everything goes as planned, they will be in the contenders tier next season.
-Washington Wizards: Wall, Beal, Nene, Gortat. Have suffered back-to-back disappointments in the second round, but the Wizards are still a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference.
-Indiana Pacers: Paul George is back healthy. He can be a top-10 player if he continues where he left off after his injury.
-Orlando Magic: Another young team. Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo, and Mario Hezjonia. They can sneak in the postseason as a number 6-8 seed if they can stay healthy. They can move up this list next season.
-Minnesota Timberwolves: Ok... So I had to put a Western Conference team on here... Andrew Wiggins and Zach Lavine can form a new lob city. Minnesota might break the longest playoff drought on the NBA.
-Los Angeles Lakers: That's right... D'Angelo Russell baby! Most likely the Black Mamba's last year, the Lakers will be motivated to push for at least the number 8 seed. Nick "Swaggy P" Young is always playing with intensity as well. Maybe they won't suck after all...

ON THE DECLINE:
-Portland Trail Blazers: Oh boy... The team that lost literally their whole starting lineup except for Damian "Loyal" Lillard. This is gonna be a rough year for Rip City. Lillard must be able to become the team leader in order for there to be at least one plus from the season.
-Atlanta Hawks: The Hawks shocked the NBA last year, grabbing the #1 spot in the East. But the loss of Demarre Carroll will weigh heavily on this team. Don't expect a repeat of last year's success.

HORRID!
-New York Knicks: The Zen Master's rebuilding project is going awful. Kristaps Porzingis looks to be enough European bust in the making, and Carmelo seems destined to leave (maybe to Chicago). Langston Galloway might be the only bright spot at the end of the year if Melo leaves...LOL.
-Denver Nuggets: Sorry, Denver. Emmaniuel Mudiay is not enough to make you better this year. Maybe next year...

So that was the first part of the preseason thread. Post teams you believe should be added or switched around.

Who's Frank Kiminsky?
And I Don't Mean That Who As A Proper Noun. You Know In St. Louis They Have Many Different Pet Names:
Who's On First
What's On Second
I Don't Know Is On Third
I Don't Give A BEEP (Darn) Plays Shortstop
