If we can stay healthy, I don't see any team being a threat at all.

Our biggest competition is ourselves.

Staying focused.
Staying hungry.
Staying discipline.
Staying humble.

in order, probably

1) NO - picked up laker killer posey and they were 2nd last year
2) SA - if duncan is still on that team then theyre still goo, plus we met them in the WCF and beat NO
3) HOU - picked up artest and won 27 straight games last season w/ no yao
4) UTAH - beat us up at their house

Houston would be a bigger concern except that the addition of Artest makes them so small. (unless they move T-Mac to the PG, one of Scola, Artest, and Battier will be on the bench at all times.

the Hornets look scary, but one injury could derail them.

the Jazz are underrated IMO, as are the Spurs.

If we stay focused, hardened and healthy, no one will take us down.

Anyway, Rockets are our biggest threat.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Yea I feel the Spurs and Jazz aren't getting enough credit,

Houston always has a good team on paper but never does anything with the talent, I predict another T-Mac injury, and they might get the 7th spot in the west. I don't trust a team with T-Mac and Yao as its core.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

I think Boston and NO are the two definite threats. San Antonio is the oldest team in the NBA, the Suns are close behind, and Utah seems like they're the same as last year.

EXACTLY.

I honestly don't see anyone challenging us outside of Rockets and... maybe Portland.

Hornets simply don't have the front court depth to stop us... I remember seeing andrew ABSOLUTELY dominating Tyson Chandler like he was a thin match stick. How are they going to deal with Gasol and Kobe? I just don't see them being a threat at all.

Obviously Spurs and Suns are worn down.

Denver, Clippers, Warriors, yea... nice try...

Jazz are solid and I believe they WILL get better, but we're far too better than them in every department.

Mavs... what a joke.

We'll be fine as long as we are committed and hungry.
