11. Memphis Grizzlies: Mayo, Gay, Randolph, and Gasol
Mayo is a great young scorer who did suffer under the sophomore slump a bit last season, but should bounce back to have a good season next year. Gay is the leader of the team, and coming off signing that $86 million extension, big things will be asked of Gay. Randolph is a veteran power forward that had a terrific season last year for the grizzlies, and should do the same if he stays healthy and out of trouble. Marc Gasol is a big frame that is a great rebounder, and has soft hands around the rim.
12. Portland Trail Blazers: Bayless, Roy, Aldridge, and Oden
Putting Bayless in the four, may be a stretch, but I think with his strong play of late, he could make the push to be the teams starting point guard. Roy will be the great floor leader and scorer he has been ever since he was drafted. Aldridge will continue to be one of the most underrated players in the NBA, scoring 17 and grabbing 9-10 rebounds a game. Oden will be the key piece to the puzzle. As long as he can stay healthy long enough to do so.
13. Houston Rockets: Brooks, Martin, Scola, and Ming
Brooks is a good young scoring point guard for the Rockets, And his ability to shoot the three very well, helps his scoring abilities. Martin was a great addition for the Rockets last mid-season, and with this being his first full season with the Rockets, Martin should flourish! Scola will continue to be the workhorse that he has been this far in his career. Lastly, the key player is Ming. If Ming is able to bounce back from serious injury, the Rockets could be a good team next season.
14. Phoenix Suns: Nash, Richardson, Hill, and Turkoglu
Nash is one of the best passers and point guards in the league. He makes anyone around him put up all-star numbers. Richardson will give you 15-20 points a game, and give some thunderous highlight dunks. Hill is the veteran player that can solid job in all aspects of the game. Turkoglu was recently acquired by the Suns, and playing with Nash should do quite well. As well he provides the Suns with another facilitator on the team.
15. Los Angeles Clippers: Davis, Gordon, Griffin, and Kaman
The Clippers have the talent on paper to play with any other team in the league. But some reason that talent has not panned out for them. Davis will continue to do what he was done for years, score the basketball, and set up teammates. Gordon could go off for 20 points come next season. Griffin will be the wild card if he is healthy next season. He could make a run at the Rookie of the Year trophy. Kaman is the All-Star on this team, and the locker room leader that can help bring this team back into the playoffs.
