MY EAST TAKE:

ONLY A FEW TEAMS HAVE SURPRISED ME IN THE EAST IN THIS EARLY SEASON.

LETS START AT THE TOP WITH THE TORONTO RAPTORS; OUT THE GATE THEY LOOK AMAZING. AS THEY LEFT OFF RIGHT WHERE THEY WERE LAST YEAR IN FINISHING IN THE EAST WITH THE BEST RECORD. WITH THE ADDITION OF 2 WAY STAR KWAHI LEONARD LOOK FOR THE RAPTORS TO STAY ON TOP OF THE EAST.

THE BUCKS HAVE BEEN A HUGE SURPRISE SO FAR THIS SEASON AS THE GREEK FREAK HAS BEEN RELENTLESS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS BEEN DOING. WITH THERE ONLY LOSS COMING FROM THE RAPTORS. WILL THEY BE A DOMINATE TEAM IN THE EAST THIS YEAR? I HOPE SO. I WANT TO SEE WHAT GIANNIS CAN DO.

THE CELTICS LOOK LIKE THEY ARE A MIDSEASON FORM AND THEY WILL BE A FORCE FOR THE TOP SPOT IN THE EAST. AS THIS TEAM IS SO DEEP WITH TALENT.

PACERS & SIXERS ARE FINE AND SHOULD BE BATTLING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PLAYOFF PACK ALL SEASON. WE WILL SEE THEY CAN MAKE THE NEXT LEAP.

PISTONS ARE BEING LEAD BY BLAKE GRIFFIN. IM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE IF HE CAN SHAKE THINGS UP.

HORNETS ARE BEING LEAD BY KEMBA WALKER WHO IS TOP 3 IN SCORING.

THE BOTTOM OF THE EAST IS JUST HORRIBLE LIKE LAST LEAR: THE BALANCE OF GOOD TEAMS IN THE EAST TO PLAYOFF TEAMS IS A VERY INTERESTING BATTLE. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THERE IS A HUGE GAP BETWEEN 1-3 AND THE REST OF THE EAST.

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME I DARE YOU TO WATCH THE BOTTOM EAST TEAMS.

MY BIGGEST SURPRISE :

WASHINGTON WIZARDS :

THEY HAVE ONLY WON 1 GAME ALL SEASON WITH 2 ALL STARS. LET THAT SINK IN. TIME TO BREAK THIS TEAM UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WHY SETTLE FOR LESS THAN MEDIOCRITY.

WEST:

1. WARRIORS 9-1

2. NUGGETS 7-1

3. TRAILBLAZERS 6-2

4. SPURS 5-2

5. GRIZZLES 5-2

6. KINGS 6-3

7. CLIPPERS 5-4

8. JAZZ 4-4

9. PELICANS 4-4

10. THUNDER 4-4

11. TIMBERWOLVES 4-5

12. LAKERS 3-5

13. ROCKETS 2-5

14. MAVERICKS 2-7

15. SUNS 1-7

MY WEST TAKE:

THE WILD WEST OF THE NBA WESTERN CONFERENCE.

LETS START OFF AT THE BOTTOM , TEAMS CURRENTLY NOT IN THE PLAYOFF HUNT.

THE PHONIX SUNS ARE A YOUNG TEAM AND I WILL WAIT TO SEE HOW THEY LOOK IN JANUARY TO EVALUATE THEM.

HOUSTON ROCKETS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THEM? LAST YEAR THEY ONLY LOST 17 GAMES AND HAD THE BEST RECORD IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE. WELL IM NOT WORRIED ABOUT THIS TEAM I JUST THINK THEY HAVE GOTTEN OUT TO A SLOW START. THEY MADE A LOT OF MOVES THIS OFF-SEASON. ID EXPECT THEM TO MAKE A JUMP IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

LAKERS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS WE THOUGHT THEY’LL BE. THEY ARE STILL FIGURING THINGS. THE LAKERS ARE IM THE TOP 5 WITH TEMPO. BUT TTHE PROBLEM IS THE DEFENSE. THE LEADER LEBRON JAMES NEEDS TO RALLY THE TROOPS AND START PLAYING DEFENSE. IM LOOKING CLOSELY AT THIS TEAM TO SEE HOW THEY CAN IMPROVE. DO YOU THINK LEBRON JAMES BIT OFF MORE THAN HE COULD CHEW?

TIMBERWOLVES ARE JUST A JIMMY BUTLER MESS AND UNTIL THEY RESOLVE THAT ISSUE THIS TEAM ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE.

THUNDER JUST GOT BACK RUSSELL WESTBROOK AND THIS TEAM WILL BE FINE.

NOW TEAMS 1-8

MY BIGGEST SURPRISES:

KINGS 6-3

GRIZZLIES 5-2

HAVEN’T CAUGHT ANY OF THESE TEAMS PLAY YET BUT I WILL SOON. THE REAL QUESTION IS WILL THESE 2 TEAMS REMAIN IN THE PLAYOFF HUNT ALL SEASON OR DID THEY JUST SURPRISE SOME TEAMS EARLY ON?

SPURS ARE BEING LEAD BY DEMAR DEROZAN AND HE IS LOOKING GREAT WITH HIS NEW TEAM AN ROLE. THIS YEAR WILL BE THE TRUE TEST FOR DEMAR. HE WILL BE A MUST WATCH ALL SEASON!

TRAILBLAZERS ARE LOOKING MORE ROUNDED AS A TEAM. STILL BEING LEAD BY DAME LILLARD.

NUGGETS LOOK FULLY STACKED AND THEY PLAY DEFENSE BEING LEAD BY JOKIC. THIS TEAM IS DEEP AND I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISE IF THEY REMAIN AS A TOP TEAM IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE. THEY COMING!

WARRIORS HAVE SOMETHING TO PROVE AS CURRY LEADS THE NBA IN SCORING! DURANT IS STILL UNSTOPPABLE. KLAY IS STILL THE BEST 3RD OPTION. HOW MANY LOSSES WILL THE END UP THIS SEASON?

-DO WHAT YOU LOVE-
