Although we are still in January, we have a pretty fair idea who will be competing to bring home the NBA crown this Spring. The East will come down to Orlando and Chicago. Philadelphia is off to a tremendous start, but can't compete with the Magic or Bulls in a seven game series. In the West, Oklahoma City, defending champion Dallas and the two terrors in Los Angeles appear to be the favorites. Like the Sixers in the East, Denver is off to a terrific start, but cannot expect to outlast the Lakers, Clippers, Mavericks or Thunder in an extended series.
