Carlisle is a Legend. He usually brought a Team full of 1-Year-Contracts to the Playoffs and this year he can finally build on something he already had last year + a potential ROTY. I don’t know if the Mavs will make the Playoffs (They basically have no room for errors or injurys), but I’m more hopefull then Danny.
Im not sold on the “Defense only”-Jazz (It aint the 90s) and I would put them also ahead of the Grizzlys (I think the loss of Z-Bo and Allen is felt not only on the field, but even more in the locker room).
And I don’t believe the TWolves will rise as high as projected. Too much cooks on offense and not enough defense. The Fate of the Clippers will be deciced by the legs of Blake and Gallo.
