The Big Mid-season Poll: who will win 14/15 NBA title?

This season has been very interesting so far, it looks incredibly tight and there are loads of realistic title challengers.

Make your prediction...

My guess at the moment is Warriors beating Hawks in the final.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

You should have added a poll.

I say either the Grizzlies or the Bulls.

because of the software the polls always appear later than the thread itself

This is hard year to predict. last 3 years been straightforward .. Miami Indiana in east, San Antonio OKC in west..


I think up east, its either cleveland or atlanta..
up west , way many teams to call for... IF OKC end up 8th seed, its very possible they take out GSW with best record in nba the first round.

GSW is so ridiculously deep that somebody is bound to step up and deliver in most days. they should go far unless they have bad injuries at the time of playoffs . Especially if Bogut stays fit...well, let's not hold our breath on this one though.

As of the current form, it's the east coast Spurs vs most likely the Warriors. That is unless Harden decides to go nuts and lay it all on the floor; dude could change a series on his own.

I was trying to figure out the percentages of teams getting to the finals from the West. Currently I'd set it as follows:

Warriors 45%
Spurs 24%
Mavs 12%
OKC 6%
Rockets 4.5%
Grizzlies 3.5%
Blazers 3%
Clippers 1.8%
Others 0.2%

I don't really see Clippers making there as they haven't improved on defense a whole lot compared to previous years and West is stronger than ever. Thunder is a bit of a black horse in regards to their current position...they're dangerous and might get themselves going once playoffs come but probably won't make it ...they haven't really improved that much either compared to previous seasons.

Opinions?

If OKC, and Spurs finish 7th 8th seed ...I really doubt both of them will go out round 1 like that.

Then in east you got the Cavs on low seed as well. I think this playoffs we might see lower seeds beating higher seeds more so then the previous year.Or maybe we should start getting to our heads the change in power structure..
It will take playoffs to acknowledge that.

Warriors over the Cavs. They've improved both defense and offense. Their bench is deep and decent enough.

In the West

The Clippers and Thunder haven't changed much at all.
The Spurs look like they're going to go through an injury crisis and are not as hungry since they are defending champs.
I'm still skeptical of the Rockets playoff performance without a top point guard especially in a conference that's packed with them.
The rest remain to be seen how they perform in the playoffs.

In the East

The Bulls defense has dropped. Rose's shooting %s are inconsistent. I think they'll fall short.
The Hawks and Wizards have good teams but I think come playoff time LeBron James will come up with big performances to survive them.

What's nuts is the Spurs are 7th with .063

I actually Portland might take it out, but he West is just ridiculously deep. OKC who's 10th has a 0.5 record while in the East, Detroit who's 10th has a 0.357 record

Hope Atlanta takes out the East

Spurs.

Or Dallas.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.
