The Top Ten

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

Even though they lost the 2016 championship, they got a strong team, and with Durant, they have a huge chance in 2017. - Zakattack2

I love Golden State Warriors

With Kevin Durant's addition, its obvious they won

They might make it to the finals, but they don't got the chemistry to win.

2 Cleveland Cavaliers Cleveland Cavaliers The Cleveland Cavaliers, also known as the Cavs, are an American professional basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio.

I think LeBron and gang can pull it off again next year.

I voted for GSW, but then I remembered that the Cavaliers have actual chemistry and the Warriors have none. The warriors are not going to win just because they are a super team with 3 future hall of famers and even more all-stars. Although, they will be the two in the finals again, that's for sure. Let's just see what happens. - Zakattack2

Kyrie and lebron that's crush with Kevin love and Tristan Thompson with j.r

Warriors blew a 3-1 lead

3 San Antonio Spurs 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.

Even without Tim, they are gonna get really far.

They are going to be so good this season, and so underestimated. Just watch, they will get a better record than last year. Maybe 60. Kawhi Leonard in prime, parker helping a bunch, so is ginobili.

They are a sleeping giant this season.

Still strong without Duncan!

4 Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

Why haven't the clippers won a ring yet

8-1 Right now. They can be 1st with more than 60 wins, they have everything they need.

Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan, Paul Pierce, that's pretty much a big 4. Even Redick.. dang. Too bad the warriors are starting a dynasty

The Clippers have been through a lot in the last 3 years and their core is still together. As long as they are healthy for playoffs, I think they can come together and make it to the Finals... to win it against the Cavs? -- that's the question.

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

Lillard himself is in the top 5 at least

They got a strong roster now, I feel like they could win if it wasn't for GSW

Lillard underrated

WHAAT? They can't get into the playoffs with the roster they have now!

They are looking good this season, even better than last

The Toronto Raptors are looking good, they are playing like last year hopefully they make it to at least the Eastern Conference Finals. Let's Go Raptors

Let's go raptors

They are gonna make it to the ECF

7 Houston Rockets 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 can be the best after they fix the defense situation

James Harden is bad

They are currently the best in the world

Definitely will be Champions this year!

8 Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. ...read more.

In the 2015-2016 season, despite having Kobe one more season, was probably the worst team in the nba. I think they might do slightly better with Ingram

Lakers fan for the win

They might be ngood again in a few seasons, but not the next one. The Lakers got a lot of rebuilding to do. Ingram and russell wont be enough yet

Lakers suck

10 Chicago Bulls 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.

17? Not even, They got a big 3, and a rookie that has a great future ahead. Robin Lopez is a great player as well. This team will make it to the playoffs this year no doubt, and if they get lucky, the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Bulls have Denzel Valentine, probably best draft pick, also have Rondo, Jimmy Butler, Dwyane wade, Robin Lopez.., they might just win again. who knows.

Rondo Wade Butler big 3 right there, they can do it next year

They have a bright future

The Contenders

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

Simmons will improve the team but they won't be in the playoffs

They got Simmons. - Zakattack2

9? No way! More like 29 or 30. They can't improve with just joel embiid and a little bit of simmons!

Too high

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

I think KD leaving won't impact Thunder as much as some people think. In fact, I think Westbrook will improve the team. How is the team #23?

Why is Oklahoma 22, they won't change

They have a goat

Sixers, Lakers, Wolves above these guys? Unbelievable. - EpicJake

16 Utah Jazz 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.

How come 76ers have a better chance to win a championship? Utah Jazz has many great players! - hollyeb13

Utah should be #7 or up! They've got one of the best benches.

Underestimated team. 13 is a good enough rank, but I really think this team will surprise everyone this season with Gordon, Favors, George hill, and Gobert is better. High hopes

Hayward left Utah - hollyeb13

17 Atlanta Hawks Atlanta Hawks The Atlanta Hawks are an American professional basketball team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Hawks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

They have it in the bag.

The true best in the league, Cavs and Warriors are screwed

3rd best team in the east, calling it now

18 Miami Heat Miami Heat The Miami Heat is an American professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida. The Heat compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

No more talent left

19 Charlotte Hornets Charlotte Hornets The Charlotte Hornets are an American professional basketball team based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Hornets compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

They're only hope is Kemba Walker

20 Sacramento Kings

They should of favored the kings in 2002. Now, they are rigging calls like crazy!

Worst franchise

21 Detroit Piston

26 New Orleans Pelicans New Orleans Pelicans The New Orleans Pelicans are an American professional basketball team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Pelicans compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

They're getting a bad record. But their roster seems decent. Good moves and they can be a champ contender.

Anthony Davis going ham

They rules

27 Memphis Grizzlies 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.
