Not that it matters, but I was looking at the Divisions this morning. Who you think has the best division in the NBA team wise?

Love to hear NT responses.

Central & Southwest

NY Knicks | NY Jets | NY Yankees

I don't think they can beat the Cavs but I also don't think anyone else in the East can beat the Cavs laugh.gif

Y'all not entirely schleep but def nodding off.


-edit-

I just checked the predidtions thread and I only saw two people that didn't have Boston as the #2 seed in the East. Call it what you want, just don't call the cops.

Knicks vs Cavs in the ECF

I hope the Knicks let Porzingis be great, he needs 16 shots a game.

This season we taking that step

most analysts had Detroit at top 4 in the east. I keep saying..if Detroit can stay in that top half...stay healthy...then they can potentially get to the finals based on matchups alone. The issue last year was meeting that cleveland buzzsaw in the 1st rd.


you going to that pistons event tonight? open run and meet n greet?

Detroit being better rests solely on Andre Drummond.

He has to take that next step and be a much better defender and leader.

He has all the tools, he also needs to figure out a way to shoot at least 58% from the line because it's ******* ridiculous and holds him back.

Pretty much.
post #194 of 31769

Yeah, anyone who thinks the Celtics, or damn near every other team in the East for that matter, have a good shot at making the Finals gotta be smoking sherm.

 

Barring a catastrophe, we all know who the final 2 teams are gonna be. You could make the argument the Cavs might 'eem be able to overcome something crazy and STILL represent that conference. :{

 

The lack of real contenders for the throne. :{

***** act like the Hawks ain't win 60 games and an ECF 2 years ago laugh.gif.

Milsap got better since then
Schroeder could be better than Teague
Bazemore >>> Carroll
Healthy Dwight >>> Horford

Plus, the bench is low key solid.

If Kyle Korver can dial back the clock a lil bit....you're looking at a 50+ win team and ECF

I like the Hawks honestly. Hawks and Pistons I like in the east.

1 game into the preseason and the takes are bubbling , opening week gon be scorching 

 

And only thing i would worry bout on the Hawks is Korver might be really washed and they gotta depend on alotta rookies/unproven players in the rotation

I think 2-4 in the East will be the Celts, Raptors, and Pistons in some order. I don't see the Hawks in that group. We'll see I guess. *shrugs*

And is Dwight really better than Horford at this point, because I don't agree with that either.

hawks are gonna be cheeks bros. losing teague and horford and adding dwight will be disgusting to watch.

Shot you a PM bro.

German Rondo nice though. haha
post #205 of 31769
Horford is better than Dwight at this point

Not counting on Dwight to be back to his old self but I expect him to put up empty stats

The hawks aren't that bad though
post #206 of 31769
I miss when Phoenix was good. They have some solid pieces for the future, but that logjam at guard is dumb.
post #207 of 31769
At least they have Devin Booker.
post #208 of 31769
I think they're stuck with Bledsoe too, his trade value is low due to all the injuries, I like Marquise Chriss as well, but he's got work to do

Horford is terrible at what Boston actually needs, rim protection and rebounding. Celtics gonna get hammered on the glass
