NBA.com's GM Survey & The Portland Trail Blazers

NBA.com put together its annual survey of the General Managers from around the league (Acting and otherwise) and compiled the results.

The Miami Heat are predicted to win the 2012 NBA Finals.

Here's how the Portland Trail Blazers stack up in the conference and division predictions.

Which team will win the Western Conference?

1. Oklahoma City -- 67.9%
2. L.A. Lakers -- 17.9%
3. Portland -- 7.1%
San Antonio -- 7.1%

Which team will win the Northwest Division?

1. Oklahoma City -- 71.4%
2. Portland -- 28.6%

Click through for individual mentions. The Blazers didn't win anything but received a fair bit of notice in player, coach and crowd categories. If you're looking to feel outraged there's definitely some snub potential in there too.
