As expected, Kevin Love will be joining forces with LeBron James in Cleveland this upcoming season. He's reportedly supposed to opt-out of his contract at the end of this upcoming season to sign a deal of five-years, $120 million+. With six seasons of what should be a core in Cleveland consisting of James, Kyrie Irving and Love, how many titles will they win? In 2014-15, should the Cavaliers be favored to win the Eastern Conference? If not Cleveland, is Chicago essentially a shoo-in?
Would you sacrifice the possibility of hosting a Game 7 at home in the Eastern Conference finals if it meant a smoother path toward getting to those Eastern Conference finals?
That is a question the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat have to be asking themselves with seven days left in the regular season.
Chances are, the second place team will avoid the Brooklyn Nets or the Chicago Bulls in the second round, because the Toronto Raptors currently sit third in the Eastern Conference and should be able to win the remainder of their games -- locking themselves into the 3 seed.
That would mean Chicago and Brooklyn would play in the 4 vs. 5 matchup, with the winner advancing to face the No. 1 seed. For Miami, that doesn't look so enticing.
The Heat were swept 4-0 in their season series with the Nets, and they went 2-2 against the Bulls. So while LeBron and James and Co. do not fear either of those two teams, they are aware of the reality that both of them play Miami tough.
By finishing second, the Heat would have a first-round matchup with the Bobcats or Wizards, then would advance to play one of those two teams, or the Toronto Raptors. And while the Raptors are a tough team, they have nothing remotely resembling the playoff pedigree of Brooklyn and Chicago.
This was one of the many topics of discussion in this interview with The Big O show on AM640 in Miami.
For the first time in what seems like forever, I'll be going over the NBA world when it comes to the 2014-15 season. Who should the top eight teams be in the Eastern and Western Conferences be, come playoff time? Is Cleveland just one of the top four or so teams in the East? Or with LeBron James and the shooters he will essentially bring with him, should they be the favorites? As far as the West is concerned, are there any new teams that could sneak up on the likes of San Antonio, Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers?

Yesterday I talked more about the Eastern Conference and who I thought would make the 2014-15 NBA playoffs. To me, there is a three-tier system, with Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto at the top, Indiana, Washington and Charlotte in the middle, then the rest of the East will be... well, irrelevant. Today, I'll go over the West, which also has a three-team tier at the top, with the rest of the teams looking up at them. The Dallas Mavericks are the team to look for when it comes to sneaking into that upper-echilon of teams.
