As 2010 draws to a close, it's time to make some 2011 predictions. After all, there's nothing we love more than to look ahead and try to figure out just what's going to happen in the sports world in the future.
Teams change every year. Some teams make the leap from bad to good, others from good to great. Still more teams go from being great to good, or good to terrible over the course of a season. Figuring out who to watch, who to follow, and who's next in line is one of sports' greatest mysteries.
Which is why we're bringing you this list. These 25 teams are going to be the ones to watch. They can fall into one of several different categories. Some of them have developed young talent that's ready to blossom; others have made massive changes to their rosters; and there are even a couple who could potentially switch home cities. All of these predictions relate to the 2011 season, or in the cases of the NFL, NBA and NHL, the 2011-2012 season.
But, no matter what, you can rest assured that these teams will be the ones worth watching in the coming year.
