1. Cleveland Cavaliers 2. Orlando Magic 3. Boston Celtics 4. Chicago Bulls 5. Atlanta Hawks 6. Miami HEAT 7. Toronto Raptors 8. Indiana Pacers 9. Detroit Pistons: Detroit fans will likely kill me for this but, as much offensive firepower as the Pistons have on their roster, I just don't see them as a playoff team. Where do the stops come from? Detroit has a rookie head coach in John Kuester, who coached or played under some of the game's legends, including Dean Smith, Rick Pitino and Larry Brown, and while he brings a ton of experience as an assistant, making to move to the first chair on the bench can be daunting. The Pistons have lived and died by the team's defense for years and will have to try to outscore their opponents on a night-to-night basis. The additions of Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva will provide Detroit with some scoring punch, but the team's ability to score will hinge largely on Rodney Stuckey's ability to get the team into the offense in the half court. Detroit will be an exciting team to watch but I don't see enough offensive talent to keep this team in the playoffs in 2010. 10. Washington Wizards 11. Charlotte Bobcats 12. Philadelphia 76ers 13. Milwaukee Bucks 14. New Jersey Nets 15. New York Knicks HOOPSWORLD I don't know about Chicago doing that good, and about Pacers being better than Pistons. If Washington remains healthy, they may be able to fight for the home-court in the playoffs.
