1. San Antonio Spurs–The Spurs are playing the best basketball right now with the best record in the NBA at 35-6 and winning consistently. Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker playing great and Tim Duncan getting his rest. The Spurs bench doing great George Hill doing great Gary Neal doing great and rest of the bench great. The Spurs defense is lacking but the game against Nugget it was there the Spurs held Carmelo to only 12 points the Spurs will be overall great by end of season both on offense and defense.
2. Boston Celtics- The Boston Celtics have been back on track with injuries hurting this team they still manage to get the win. All because of one man Rajon Rondo he is the reason the Celtics are still contenders. With a big win last night against Orlando Magic the Celtics get back their anchor on defense Kevin Garnett. This team is in my eyes is the most dangerous team in the NBA they have a big line up Glen Davis, Kevin Garnett, Shaq O’Neal, Jermaine O’Neal, Semih Erden and Kendrick Perkins who is still out with knee injury. Bostons guards the best point guard Rajon Rondo and best shooter Ray Allen and the leader of the team Paul Pierce Boston has one of the most dangerous teams in the NBA. This Celtics team is only besides the Spurs and Lakers that know how to win a Championship the last 3 teams that have won the tittle are Spurs Celtics and Lakers.
3. Los Angeles Lakers- The defending champion Lakers are also playing like chumps but lately they have been inconsistent. They have been winning and then losing they are second in the west but they are not playing not champs. The Lakers are playing selfish basketball when i mean by the lakers i mean Kobe. Kobe is suppose to be a leader and he’s not playing like the leader people have seen past 3 years. Kobe has two dominating big men that need to be fed down low in Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol who need to be fed down low both 7 footers who dominate the paint. One thing is stopping that Kobe is taking too many shots too many but as long as Lakers big men get the ball they will be able to defend that tittle.
4. Orlando Magic- The Orlando Magic after that blockbuster trade have been doing great they have been shooting great and winning consistently they are now contenders. Howard dominating on defense like always but trying to find dominance in the offense end. Dwight Howard has been working in off season with Hakeem Oljuwon over the summer and another great big man as assistant head coach Patrick Ewing. The Orlando Magic have a lot of weapons on the offense end with shooters like Hedo Turkoglu and J.J Redick Jason Richardson and Gilbert Arenas. When you have Gilbert Arenas coming off the bench you must have a great team, the Magic are definitely a contender in the East.
5. Oklahoma City- The Thunder have one of the best in the world Kevin Durant who is playing great with the duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook the two are great but losing tough games to Los Angeles and Denver. Durant and Westbrook can only do so much agaisnt team averaging 60 pts as a duo.Basketball is all about a team effort and OKC is not the same team from last year. They are still young team and still in top four in west standings. This young team will get back on track this team is a force to be wrecking with years to come.
