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.


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.


Uh if you say so.

Yeah, Detroit should be looking on the up though.

Yeah, I'm not too sure about that one.

I think Ersan has all-star potential, but Tobias Harris, I guess I need to see more of him to get a better judgment there.

i don't see how this is a stretch.

he was the #7 ranked prospect out of high school in 2010. He's only been in the league 1 year and he's still one of the youngest players at 20 years old (just turned in july).

he's got a great frame at 6-8 230 and is a small forward with some pf skills. his post up game is great and his jumper is definitely solid.

i don't really understand how it's so out of this world to say he has star potential.
