The Top Ten

1 Golden State Warriors The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in San Francisco. The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. ...read more.

You guys should all know how I feel about the Warriors. I hate them. I love KD, I love Curry, I love Klay, but I hate them on the Warriors. I think this will be the year they go down. - 2storm

The only other team I can see beating this team is the Rockets other than that it's there's to lose at this point. - htoutlaws2012

Highly deserves this spot best team ever

They are gods goats and batter the boston

They will beat the Rockets no bias at all - TristGamer

2 Milwaukee Bucks The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the Eastern Conference Central Division.

The Bucks are the best team in the NBA through the regular season. I don't get why people just shrug them off against the Warriors. They have the best record in the league. They have a great offense and defense. Giannis is the best player in the league this season. I think they have a great chance. They have Brogdon coming back before the Finals and with him they look unstoppable. - 2storm

Definitely don’t take them lightly - Randomator

3 Toronto Raptors The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Yay we are the nba champions! - trains45

This team has been so underrated. They have a great defense and a great defense. They match up well against every team. They also have a great bench and to me they look very, very scary. - 2storm

I don’t trust them. Lebron near single handedly beat this team a year ago - Randomator

Of course I said this and they won the championship. This aged real well - Randomator

Well it’s official they’re the new NBA champions - Randomator

Wow I'm impressed with the doubt this team went through. They took advantage of a wounded Warriors team got the biggest free agent acquisition, and a better head coach with better supporting cast equals a champion glad I was proven wrong congrats Raptors! - htoutlaws2012

4 Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets are an American professional basketball team based in Houston, Texas. The Rockets compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

They look to be the only team who can challenge the Warriors - Randomator

The Rockets are another dangerous and underrated team. Mike D'Antoni is, in my opinion, one of the best coaches ever and they look like a threat to the Warriors in a surprisingly weak Western Conference. - 2storm

The west is still stronger than the east. If the nets were in the west they wouldn't even be in the playoffs. - RobertWisdom

They're losing to Utah - sickomodeormobamba

5 Philadelphia 76ers The Philadelphia 76ers are an American professional basketball team based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

The 76ers are a Superteam. If they can just get continuity and if Ben Simmons could shoot, they are an easy Finals winner. I'm rooting for the Sixers, but they probably won't make it past the Bucks and the Raptors. - 2storm

6 Indiana Pacers

The Pacers are right there. If they had Oladipo I would probably pick them over the Celtics, but the Pacers just don't have that one guy that can go off. - 2storm

7 Oklahoma City Thunder The Oklahoma City Thunder are an American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

I don't think their record is reflective of their talent. I think their is a chance they could upset someone. I love PG13, but the X-Factor is Westbrook. If he can just play well, they have a chance. - 2storm

8 Boston Celtics The Boston Celtics are an American professional basketball team based in Boston, Massachusetts. They are specifically known for honing infamous players such as Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Paul Pierce, and more. They are also known for having the most championships in NBA History, with 17 total.

The Celtics are just so inconsistent. They probably won't make it past the 2nd round unless they finally click. They got Kyrie though which could be enough. - 2storm

9 Denver Nuggets The Denver Nuggets are an American professional basketball team based in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.

I personally think the Nuggets are gonna to good in the Playoffs. I mean they have a chance, but I think they are a weak link. - 2storm

10 Portland Trailblazers The Portland Trail Blazers, commonly known as the Blazers, are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon.

I think the Blazers have a chip on their shoulder. Their are a lot of people that pick them as a sleeper pick. Maybe they can upset a top dog. - 2storm

The Contenders

11 San Antonio Spurs The San Antonio Spurs are an American professional basketball team based in San Antonio, Texas. The Spurs compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.
12 Utah Jazz The Utah Jazz are an American professional basketball team based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Jazz compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.
13 Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.
14 Brooklyn Nets The Brooklyn Nets are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City. The Nets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.

The Nets have literally the best management I have seen in a while. They make nothing into something. I love D Lo and they might give a team a scare in the Playoffs. - 2storm

15 New York Knicks The New York Knickerbockers, commonly referred to as the Knicks, are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Manhattan, in New York City.
16 Orlando Magic The Orlando Magic are an American professional basketball team based in Orlando, Florida. The Magic compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.
17 Chicago Bulls The Chicago Bulls are an American professional basketball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Central Division. ...read more.

Ummm why are the KNICKS on here when they did not even make it. But imma bulls fan sooo imma put the bulls.haha pistons

18 Memphis Grizzlies The Memphis Grizzlies are an American professional basketball team based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Grizzlies compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.
