    So, that's George Hill, Joe Johnson and now Boris Diaw added to the Jazz young core.

    Will be tough!

    Trendy team, but their ceiling is pretty much the 5 seed (which is still good).

    Is "Oliver Hanlan" English for "Sergei Lishouk"?

    Better than us. 5 seed for the Rockets would require another MVP caliber season from Harden.

    Definitely. And 5 isn't their ceiling.
    There's no OKC contending anymore. Memphis has Gasol with broken foot and Clipers actually got worse.

    He's likely a Morey target too.

    A chance to play under Stevens again? That's a tough opp to pass up.

    Hill / Exum
    Hood
    Hayward / Joe Johnson
    Favors / Diaw
    Gobert

    This team might end up being the best defense next year.

    Not sure how good an old Diaw will do outside of SA.
