Last NBA Championship: -

Last Postseason Appearance: 2008
A reason to cheer for the Nuggets: The new-look Nuggets have had an impressive season, fueled by the acquisition of Chauncey Billups in exchange for Allen Iverson back in November. While they hardly boast a history of playoff greatness (zero championships), Denver's time has to come sooner or later, and with veteran leadership and the confidence of a successful year behind them, the Nuggets could surprise people this post-season. Between Billups and Carmelo Anthony, the Nuggets have two superb players that can be relied upon in high-pressure situations. Denver is strong on the road and they're a confident squad. If they can work up some physicality, the Nuggets could break their string of playoff failure.

Players to Watch: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, J.R. Smith, Nene Hilaro, Kenyon Martin

A reason to cheer for the Hornets: In 2005, just three years after NBA basketball was re-settled in New Orleans from Charlotte, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina forced the Hornets to temporarily relocate to Oklahoma. The team did not make the playoffs that season, but Chris Paul won Rookie of the Year and things were clearly looking up for the franchise. By the 2007-08 season, the team played all 41 home games back in New Orleans and the city hosted the All-Star game. Finishing with a 56-26 record, the team had its best season ever, claiming the Southwest Division title before losing to the Spurs in the Western Conference semi-final. This season, the Hornets are still looking to make their first visit ever to the NBA Finals, something that could cap a potential feel-good story in New Orleans. Their strong defensive game will be beneficial, but at the end of the day, this team will probably make it as far as Chris Paul will take them. It's basically that simple.

Players to Watch: Chris Paul, David West, Peja Stojakovic, Rasual Butler
