You could make a reasonable case that the five best players in the Eastern Conference are on the Bulls and Cavs. I wouldn't, but you could.
In the annual GM survey, 46.2% of GMs voted that the Spurs will win the championship this year. Cavs were runner-up with 15.4% of votes.
This is a far different media landscape than what existed when, say, the Celtics were tanking for Oden, or the Cavs LeBron.
No worries guys, the Cavaliers will somehow still win the lottery in the next five years.
In annual GM survey, Bulls receive 3rd-most votes to win title behind Spurs and Cavs.

Would be a huge blow for the Bulls if Butler misses first two games vs. Knicks and Cavs. He's the one who's supposed to guard Melo+LeBron.
On day Cavs open the season vs. Knicks, Kendrick Lamar will perform and Kevin Hart will make appearance at free fan event in lot near arena.
Prediction Machine simulated the NBA season 50,000 times. Cavs won title 44 percent, followed by Chicago (15), OKC (11), LAC (10), Spurs (9)
