You had to get me started did'nt you? by Capler at 10/17/01 12:16:59 PM

Wait a minute. It is just like with my home park, Carowinds. Do yall have something against my home team, Charlotte Hornets. This will be the same team that made it to the conference finals last season. Who cares that this will probably be the last season they will play in Charlotte. It is not our fault, we built them a brand new arena 12 years ago and now they want another. I say good bye. Let the owners go rape another community. Charlotte is a good sports town but the voter stood up and said "No way". I actually hate to see them go but I am very proud of the city and votes for taking a positive stand against this foolishness. The owners are currently talking to Norfork, and Louisville. Recently the stupid owner has said that he will pull all his sports teams out of Charlotte if he moves the Hornets. Can you believe it? Fans have stopped buying season tickets and local advertisers have pulled sponsership because we are fed up with this madness.

Oh man, I did leave the Hornets out of that, who else did I forget? Oh well, I think the Hornets would make the playoffs, probably around #6, just replace them with whoever else I put at #6.

Jordan (oops, I mean the Wizards) by Zimm at 10/25/01 2:52:50 PM

I'm from the D.C. area and like the Wizards, but they lose all the time. I think they will be better this year with Jordan but not great. In the last pre-season game, every time he was in, the Wizards got a lead and were doing really well. But, he's 38 and needs more rest, so when he leaves, the Wizards go back to their old selves and blow any lead Jordan gave them. At least the team will get a lot of attention now.

Here's my take on the East:

1) 76er's
2) Bucks
3) Magic
4) Heat
5) Raptors
6) Knicks
7) Wizards
8) Pacers

West:
1) Lakers
2) Spurs
3) Mavs
4) Kings
5) Blazers
6) Jazz
7) Rockets
8) Nuggets

Finals: Repeat between 76er's and Lakers

My pick... no brainer... LA. Shaq is just an oversized monster. There is no stopping LA when you have him at center and Kobe Bryant by his side. IMO they will go down as the second best due behind Jordan/Pippen in NBA history.
