Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls
The Bulls backup big man made highlight reels with his dunk over Dwyane Wade last postseason. Gibson is a force on both ends of the floor, giving Chicago scary depth in the frontcourt.
Norris Cole, Miami Heat
The rookie point guard could be Miami's version of Rajon Rondo, complementing the Heat's Big 3. Cole is an instant shot of offensive energy.
George Hill, Indiana Pacers
The Pacers have more than a few potential X-factors on their roster, but Hill was just inserted into the starting lineup and gives Indiana a tough two-way point guard.
Avery Bradley, Boston Celtics
Bradley made the most of Ray Allen's injury, jumping into the starting lineup and holding on to the spot despite the Allen's return. Bradley and Rondo combine for one of the fastest backcourts in the NBA.
Iman Shumpert, New York Knicks
Shumpert has become the Knicks' utility man, especially since Jeremy Lin when down. Shumpert can play three positions and often finds himself guarding the opponents' best player.
Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks
Is he in or is he out? Horford has missed most of the season with a pectoral injury but could return before the postseason begins. However, the Hawks big man told reporters "I don't feel like it is realistic that I can play for the playoffs."
Stan Van Gundy, Orlando Magic
Without Dwight Howard and his job security on dangerous ground, Van Gundy has his work cut out for him in the playoffs. Stan can make a stand in Orlando if he can coach up the Magic in the playoffs.
Spencer Hawes, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers big man missed time this season and the team suffered because of it. With Hawes back in the paint, it frees up Elton Brand and adds to Philadelphia's deep roster.

1* Free Play Predators PUCK LINE.Editors Note: AAA Sports finished the 2012/13 season among the BEST in the World in the NFL at +$24,000 units. 2013/14 would be ALL about his NCAAF domination at +$39,000 units. 2014/15 sees him return to his roots, he’s +$8,600 w/ ALL NFL picks this year and has the 10* side in Super Bowl XLIX ready to go!
In a game which I believe will be decided late or in the extra periods, I have no issues whatsoever in laying the price for the extra 1.5 goals of insurance today. Note that this is a “revenge” game for the visitors who would fall 3-0 at home to the Pens back on November 25th. In fact, to say this is a revenge game would be a bit of an understatement I think as Pittsburgh has won five straight in the series. The Predators will be playing with an edge today, after winning five straight the Central Division leaders have gone a sluggish 1-2-2 after falling 3-0 at Colorado on Friday. The Pens are coming off back-to-back wins and I think will come in a bit complacent today; and note, it’s not too hard to imagine the home side getting caught “looking ahead” to its three game Western road swing which starts on Wednesday. I have always maintained that I would gladly lay -500 odds if I thought the line should in fact be -800, in my opinion we’re getting pretty good line value with the added goal and a half. Consider a second look at NASHVILLE on the PUCK LINE.
