Hi my name is Jeff Awesome and this is my first article on B/R. This article will explore what will happen next season and how the playoffs will shake out. This article will also examine the matchups, evaluate how teams did throughout the regular season, and make a prediction.
"I'm taking my talents to South Beach." Lebron James announced infamously during the "Lebacle" known as "The Decision." But "The King" wasn't the only player switching jerseys and cities during the bonanza known as the 2010 NBA free agency period. Chris Bosh left the Toronto Raptors to join Dwyane Wade and James in Miami. Heck, even two former superstars switched teams: Tracy McGrady (from Knicks to Pistons) and Shaq (from Cavs to Celtics).
In other moves, Carlos Boozer ditched Utah for the Windy City. Amare Stoudemire left Planet Orange for Madison Square Garden. These two moves created a shift of power from the Western Conference to the Eastern Conference. Nevertheless from top to bottom the West is still deeper with more playoff-caliber teams. Without further ado, here is my playoff predictions!
