Probably the most depth of any team not named the cavs. Doesn't need a guy to score 20 to win. Remove a player of your choice and I still think I could win a couple rounds. Only way I can see this team losing is if voters way overvalue ALL NBA star power.

    Basically the spurs offense with great shooters and Pick and Roll. I'd start Lee and put him on Curry and Nash on Henderson with Manu coming off of the bench just like for the Spurs. Batum is one of the few players in the league with the length and quickness to guard Durant (not saying he would stop Durant). I have a monster advantage down low, I'd take advantage of that.

    Magic for me, Durant and Curry is obviously a great scoring duo, and I think Favors could bother Millsap with his length, but they have no inside scoring and the Magic just have so many options

    My thoughts exactly minus the Favors thing, Favors is a good down the road prospect but currently he's Millsap's backup for a reason.

    I don't get the Warriors team. Its like they're playing for next season.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Whoa! Great match up!

    I'm going with Golden State because of the athleticism, also with Curry and Durant 3 point ability. Also they have great ball distributors in Vasquez and Maynor come off the bench!
    Lol, but I think this game will be won in OT, because the Magic are a great team!
    2013-1014 is the season the Pelicans fanbase grows!!!!

    It's a shame two top 6 teams had to play in round one
    my team actually has 3 40% three point shooters in the starting line up with 2 more off of the bench.

    meh Favors is a really good defender and rebounder, and a good shot-blocking PF, hes just raw offensively

    my idea of a good team doesnt include former all pros that are going to retire in a year or two.. this team is my version of the thunder and will be great for many years

    with the right coach deandre could become good on the offensive end but i like his top 2 in the league shot blocking skills against duncans hook shots

    Budinger, Curry, Durant... and... Henderson good midrange not great from 3, Vasques might give you that one, Brown took open ones thanks to Nash still only 36%, shame he got injured still just ok at 35%,
    not a bad 3 point shooting team but not a remarkable one.

    durant,curry,budinger,brown,vasquez shot great from behind the arc last year.. i though, and i was gonna say 5 but threw maynor in there since hes around 36%... i shouldnt have said great but theyre not bad just like you said.. and yea henderson isnt a 3 point shooter, good midrange and top 10 defense for guards
