West is a better everything than Scola.
But that's okay, Indy is going to beat the Heat this season and it may be in the 2nd round.
Fatigue is about to kick in for a team in a PARTY city and guys on their last legs.
Haslem,Wade(to a certain extent),Battier, and your young guys are who they are. Chalmers may get better , but he want be able to blossom on this team as constructed. And so forth. Meanwhile, The Bulls and Pacers got more umph. Atlanta is a bad matchup for them in my opinion with the addition of Millsap, who want play small. Lebron is really going to have to defend PFs, and I 'm not sure he wants to do that for 82 games. plus complacency is natural.
So, all that being said, I think Indy is GREAT but they can be beat, so if we can sneak out of the West, we can shock the world.
What would be bad is if Rose and Butler being the best backcourt in the league next season, or at lest in that conversation, with Deng and what I feel like is a "coached-up" Boozer and a guy who I will say is a winner, Noah, That's a scary proposition. I don't know about their depth as of now but, I like that 5.
