Sure, it's a "little" early
but what the heck?
Pacers are looking more and more like a lottery team. Nobody here can figure out what the hell
they're doing, but we're being reminded daily
that Jermaine O'Neal was signed on August 31st, so there's still time.
I like the Bulls. I've always been a huge Scott Skiles fan (even when he was at Michigan State and used to taunt The General from the floor. Balls
as big as church bells). Wallace is a great addition for them, and I think they'll make some noise.
Out of the west, I'll take Dallas. Cuban's a winner and he'll figure out some way to give his team an edge. Of course, Cuban's an IU guy and I just
can't help being a homer.
Same with Skiles. He led an undersized high school team to the Indiana state championship in '83, but he was considered a head case and IU (where he
wanted to go) didn't give him a look. Hence the animosity between him and Knight.
Anyway, my pick is Dallas vs Chicago in the finals with Dallas on top.
