    This one isn't "tough to predict" at all.
    Top to bottom - Indiana is the best team in the Eastern Conf.
    ...you kinda lost me when you were discussing KCP and Paul George and and you said: "George is almost assuredly the better player".

    I think they'll end up 3-4 seed. Miami will be ahead and probably one of Bulls or Nets. They are for sure a really good team but I'm not as high on them as BDL. If Granger is comes back at the same level as before the injury, Hibbert plays the regular season as good as he played this offseason and the Granger/George rotation works out they'll have a good shot at top 2 though, but that's pretty big ifs imo. I can see why BDL ranks them as high as he does though but Wade have to break down for them to be the no 1. The Heat 27 in a row...

    I'm willing to wager will NOT represent the EC in the 2014 NBA finals.

    I'm betting any avatar for a month of Forsberg that Miami is placed higher than Indy at the end of the regular season. Bieber, Chaz, the flag of Norway (!) or whatever you will come up with.

    Edit: Forsberg in Avs gear, not Philly, Quebec or w/e.

    Cant do it.
    Give me the Bulls AND Indy and you got a bet.
    ...winner chooses the loser's avatar for a WEEK, not a month (I can't deal with that again).

    To sum up:
    If Chicago or Indy finishes ahead of Miami, - I win.

    ...does that work for you?

    You are a bastard, that is my first answer. I'll take it and it's a week.

    This will be the fourth year in a row that the Heat will be making a bid for the finals. That is taxing. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if you see restricted minutes for the Big 3 and a middling regular season.

    Having said that, it does not, at all, mean either Indiana or Chicago are better teams. They are both good teams, sure, but its hard to call either teams better than the repeat NBA champs, and holder of the 2nd longest win streak in league history, who's main guy will go down as at least a top 10 player, even if he ended his career right now.
