Thanks. I found one at sports authority and played in it a little. I much prefer compression pants and have since worn them every time.

Hawks will make the playoffs like they do every year and loose in the first round. Like clockwork.

Sleeper teams in the east are Detroit and Charlotte. Both should make it in.

Sleeper in the east, the MAGIC. Vucevic, Oldipo, Gordon, Peyton.

Their rebuild seems to be going great. Just need some better role players and to give these guys a few years experience and watch out.

I think the Bulls are comparable to last season's Nets. They have a baller team on paper, but let's see if Gasol can pull a Tim Duncan time machine move and let's see if they can get a full season out of Rose first. I really like their components, and I hope it works. The NBA is much more fun when Rose is at it.

I think that the Hawks will be good this year. Toronto will probably get to the second round, and maybe the third depending on how the team grows. Remember, the Spurs annihilated a star studded team with a bunch of guys that were either before or past their prime. They just had the best chemistry.

I'm not too certain if the Wiz will take a step forward or back this year. Last year surprised everyone.

Hey the Hawks were a game away from beating the Pacers in the playoff last year! They are going to surprise some people this year.

I do agree with Charlotte being a sleeper team though.

Question for Spurs fans? Gio are you listening?

Does Tim Duncan get his 6th ring before he bows out?

Assuming he does, where does that catapult him in the pantheon of great players?

(Four Hall of Famers with 6 - Cousy, Kareem, # 23, and Pippen)

Why is Jordan in this list? MJ has 6 finals MVPs. No other player comes close.

Robert Horry has 7 rings, if you just want to count how many rings a player has.

Great catch man

I shouldv'e noted: "Hall of Fame" players with 6 rings...

Purposely leaving Horry off the list

I certainly wasn't saying Duncan would be equal to MJ, that list was only to note the other upper echelon players to reach that criteria

Would Duncan move up the list? I have him in my top 15 players ever currently

Yes, HOF is different. Duncan is a beast. Where does he rank among power forwards like Karl Malone or Kevin McHale? Rodman is a HOF with 5 rings so he is right there with Duncan and Kobe right now.

Above them easily

He has both ring count and longevity

On 2nd thought, he's a top 12 All time great. Amazing considering ALL of his contempararies at the position have long been gone (outside of Dirk)

* Should be noted that LBJ will probably be in the top 3 when he's done, since he's still a lot of years left

D-Wade is in that top 15 as well. But his injuries, hurt his ranking slightly in my eyes
