East conference playoff seed predictions 2010-11

This is obviously my predictions for the playoffs for 2010-11 Eastern Conference. I'll be unbiased here as I was in the Western Conference predictions.

1.Miami Heat-The team will have the best record in the NBA whether I or anybody else likes it. The refs will lead the way for this team which is why they will make it to the Finals and lose. That is my prediction anyway. As long as they stay healthy I can't see why they won't be.

2.Boston Celtics-The reason I put them at 2 is because they have an old team. Injuries will hurt them as it always does, but with depth at the Center and power forward position I think they can at least keep this high of a seed. Figure Kg will get injured at some point during the season again.

3.Orlando Magic-The lack of consistancy has me and others wondering about the Magic. Even though the Magic have a lot of great talent and can shoot the 3 they are a bit too inconsistant for my liking which will hurt them throughout the season unless they make a trade before the deadline which I hope they do. Bring Melo to Orlando!!

4.Atlanta Hawks-They are doing pretty well thus far into the season, but they as always will fail one way or another come playoff time. A regular season team!! Prove me wrong Atlanta!

5.Chicago Bulls
-They are doing just fine thus far without their big acquistion of the off-season in Boozer. I believe they will make it to the Conference Semi's, but no farther.

6.New Jersey Nets-This is a surprise pick, but I'm basing this on believing they will end up with Melo which will lead them to the playoffs. They may be a better seed than that if they end up with Melo o. Didn't want a bunch of hooplah if you get what I'm saying.

7. Milwaukee Bucks-This team has a solid team. Probably would have went somewhere last year if it wasn't for Boguts injury, but they did beat the Hawks in game 7 to make it to the divisional rounds. They achieved more than expected. congrats to Bucks wish them the best this season as well.

8.New York Knicks-Just figure they will end up with the final spot.
