Champions: Chicago

In the East I have Cleveland having the better regular season but due to lack of big time playoff experience I think they fall in 7 games to Chicago in the conference finals.

In the West I have OKC making a late run into the playoffs after treading water earlier in the year without Durant. With Durant just getting into game shape he should be hitting his stride come playoff time which spells danger for anyone they meet. They upset SA on their way to the NBA finals where they end up falling short to Chicago in 6 games.
