Also, I hate not putting the Heat as Eastern Conference Winners again, but if my prediction of them getting Howard is correct, I think the Bulls have more firepower than us.

 

And yes, I have seen this article http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=aw-wojnarowski_michael_jordan_nba_2011-12_season_122411 that basically negates any chance of Howard to the Bulls, but I feel things will change come mid season.

As per company standards, I do not speculate on playoffs until at least midseason. Also, go to hell, I'm not doing anything past standings and I don't care if my total W-L adds up to .500 or not.
