As if you haven’t noticed, NBA previews for all 30 NBA teams popped up at ProBasketballTalk faster than a Scott Baio rumor. But more accurate.

What you see below is one stop shopping for your NBA previews — we are all about reader convenience here at PBT . All 30 teams are here and we look at what happened in the frenzied free agency for your team, what you’re impossible fan dreams are, and then we’re looking at reality.

Remember when you look at the win predictions that it is based on the shortened 66-game season. I will bet you anything the Heat will not break the Bulls all time win record this season.

Bookmark this, because this list also gives you an easy place to look back at the end of the season so you can remind us just how wrong we were. Again, we’re all about the convenience.

    “I will bet you anything the Heat will not break the Bulls all time win record this season.” ok Kurt, I see what you did there.

    I call BS on the Laker wins. No way they have a higher win percentage than last season with no Lamar, an aging roster and most importantly, no Phil Jackson. Even at last yrs clip, they’re at 46 wins. Take away Jackson, Odom and another year from Fisher and Artest MWP and you’re looking at another four to five losses. ’nuff said.

    the whole NBA huh? HOW THE HELL can you leave the Thunder out??!!

  5. dirtybird2020 - Dec 15, 2011 at 4:10 PM

    Why is this bozo fag still in a conversation reguarding basketball?!?!? Go read his remarks in the lakers are pissed story, clear dont know crap! Thinks he can get dwight with gasol, and then play howard and bynum, then trade a #1 draft pick for jameer nelson like lakers draft picks grow on trees, and then say go get davis, after they used the clause on him and no team over salary cap can put a bid in! What a idiot be thankful the clown isnt your gm! And bozo heres some comments i left for you and your bf in the other story in case you did get them…….

    A queer took offence, you took it good but you forgot to swallow! Dumb queer dont know basket ball saying howards a better fit than pau, so you would have howard and bynum running the 4 & 5 ! What a idiot, bozo didnt do much but play with kids and handle balls, something their current pgs dont know how to do, not to mention theres about as much cartilage in kobes knees as there is possabiltys in this guys starting lineup! Sounds like your boyfriend didnt buy you that cute purple jersey you wanted and are throwing a fit, true bandwagon laker fan throwing their current players under the bus, im sure you wouldnt have said a word if your boyfriends zipper wasnt stuck! This is where you swallow clown!!!!

    Haha love bozos trade offer, he thinks lakers draftpicks just grow on trees, baron davis haha he will get claused and picked up by a team under salary cap, which lakers arent, clearly this guy dont watch basketball or basketball news, this is a bandwagoners dream team! A pretty pathetic, go play with your bf, queers exit the room, theres no place for them in basketball ask suns gm! You must be thinking of volleyball (a queers favorite sport) with bynum and howard starting! This guys a joke and too easy too bust on, you can even ask his boyfriend! Wipe that mess off your face!

  7. clippers2012 - Dec 15, 2011 at 4:23 PM

    Way off

  8. rowdyrr - Dec 16, 2011 at 12:24 AM

    predicting Celtics against Pacers matchup in the 1st round, old vs young but Indy has some durability concerns, too. Western Conf more competitive throughout but Heat and Bulls as good as any

  9. trbowman - Dec 16, 2011 at 1:28 AM

    Wiz are better than the Bobcats.

  10. nazraq - Dec 16, 2011 at 9:07 AM

    Ban dirtybird… What a dumbass, no one gets your point if there is one… While trying to sort through all the garbage and your fascination with another mans zipper..

  11. jwt2 - Dec 16, 2011 at 7:24 PM

    Put into a chart and figured out the Orlando Magic win/loss record. They will win -13 games and lose 79 games in a 66 game season if the rest of these are right.
    These stats show that most of these predictions are rosy. 46 less wins/losses if Magic are a 500 team. Or 55 wins/losses if magic do as well as last season. or 36 if this turns them into the Timberwolves prediction…

    Dear Santa,

    I see you didn’t get my letter asking for the complete cancellation of the NBA season as my Christmas gift. Fair enough, I haven’t been all that good this year anyway. Can you at least cancel the Christmas day games instead? I just don’t want to see your special day ruined by these overpaid, tatooed, egomaniacal, bling bearers.

    Dang, too bad I missed your NBA preview. Here is mine.
