I guess Detroit, but Monroe and Knight will be better than last year, and they still have Stuckey and Tayshaun. Drummond is gonna take some time to develop though.

Surprised to see Detroit winning this especially over teams like Milwaukee and Toronto. Monroe improved a lot last year and he's only 22

Yeah not sure how you can argue that Detroit is a better team than Milwaukee. While they have some nice young pieces who show a ton of promise, Milwaukee actually has an established star along with some above average players around him. Not only that, but they were still fighting for that 8th seed towards the end of last season after the trade for Monta, while Detroit was already far out of the picture.

Detroit has a ways to go to catchup to Milwaukee, who again will likely challenge for that 8th seed this year.

Jennings/Udrih
Ellis/Lamb
Harris(?)/Dunleavy/Mbah a Moute
Ilyasova/Udoh/Henson/Gooden
Dalembert/Sanders/Henson/Gooden

That team may be nothing special, but as a collective, it's still more established and proven than Detroit at this point.

And Toronto is going to surprise a few people this year. They are a much better team now than they were at any point in time last year with all the additions they made over the course of the off-season.

Lowry/Calderon/Lucas
Ross/Fields/McGuire
DeRozan/Kleiza/McGuire
Bargnani/Johnson/McGuire
Valanciunas/Davis

If Valanciunas lives up to the hype, and the teams that are expected to fall off given key departures and injuries (i.e. the Bulls, Magic, and Atlanta) actually do fall off, that is arguably a top 7 team in the East.

How is Detroit winning this?

Greg Monroe is a star and Knight, Prince, Stuckey, Drummond is a solid core.

yea if the bucks don't make the playoffs it will be because of coaching, not talent. and it's skiles last year on his deal, so he'll be gone if they don't.

tobias harris will be a stud. he legit has all-star potential.

our post D is actually very good outside of freakin gooden who'll actually probably get decent minutes this year.. again Rolling Eyes

one of sekou smith's top 5 rising teams too, so it's not just bucks fans saying this.

I based this off of where teams finished last year, and for the Hawks, I threw them in because they lost their best player.

They won't be picked for a while, but I just decided to throw them in there so I wouldn't forget.

Gooden's not that bad of a player tho. His defense can be bad at times, but when he was here in Dallas, and when he played for the Spurs, his D was actually above average.

I'd love to have him back on the Mavs, just not for the amount that he is making.

It's a solid core, but other teams have better depth.

agreed. They are the deeper, better squad. That's no offense to the Pistons either, because the Pistons are still rebuilding, while the Bucks are kind of in no man's land for the moment.
