i am not very updated about what team are the best now, what are the top 4 teams that will probably compete hardly to get the trophy, also would like to know 5 top players and why are them good and his position.

Please guys, i don't have acess to all that info NBA its not free to watch here in television.

ps: i love Lakers also like Kobe and Shaq and the old Scott Pippen because i used to play with him in NBA JAM lol he was very good

Good thing you like the Lakers because they are probably the best team out there right now.

I would rank them like this:


The 4th spot is kind of a toss up between a lot of under-achieving and over-achieving teams. I went with Utah cause they've been winning for the most part without their 2 best players.

Top 5 players:
Lebron James
Kobe Bryant
Chris Paul
Kevin Garnett
Chris Bosh

I am a bit rushed so I couldn't explain the reason for each player.

1. Celtics
2. Cavaliers
3. Lakers
4. i think the nuggets but who knows really alot of teams could be in the 4 spot

1. LBJ F his scoring is down but his team is winning more and he does so many other things then score
2. Kobe G Kobe is Kobe thats all there is to that bet he will be front runner for mvp again sooner or later
3. Chris Paul G best point gaurd in the league for sure and by the time its done could be the second best of all time
i only like the 3 of them for a chance to win mvp and its only my opinion but after them there is alot of possibility for 4 and 5

All I know is that I won $25 off Boston tonight. I know nothing about Basketball, I just bet on what my professional gambler friend tells me to.

Me? I'm a Boxing guy.

if you don't watch basketball why do you care who is top players or teams anyways?

Guardian December 12 2008 5:04 AM EST

i cant allways watch but is a sport that i like.
to me to try see i have to searcj on the web a place to do it.

thanks to the 2 guys who told me the teams and players, i appreciate it.

other good players are Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson, Shaquille O'neal to name a few. The ones mentioned above also good. If Michael Jordan comes back, he will be the best one lol

How can anyone win $25 on the celtics beating the zards??? Did you bet 2.8mil on the celtics:P

birdman December 12 2008 4:33 PM EST
