Toronto: 4th best team in the East?
I think the Raptors are the 4th best team in the East and they remind me of the Orlando Magic of last season. I heard Bosh gained 30 pounds and he looks bigger. Also, Calderon will have another 10 apg season with all the talent around him. Washington and Atlanta are 2 big teams who will contend for the 4th spot but Atlanta really didn't make a huge improvement and Washington is waiting on Arenas. For there Offensive system, they added the best pieces for it. DeRozan will be a defender first, scorer second. Jack will be a slasher off the bench with Bellineli shooting. Evans and Rasho will be your big man depth and Wright will be another solid defender.
Top 4 team who can make some noise and can push a top East team.
i also think they are the 4th best team in the East in terms of talent, i would give the Wiz consideration for that spot too, they too are stacked
Agreed. They could be the 4th team. they've got the talent. It really depends on Barngarni and Bosh's defense and rebounding. IF their both solid then they will be top 5 atleaast.
The Wizards are my "gotta see" team. I wanna see if Agent 0 is still Agent 0. Missing almost 2 seasons due to injuries are not good.
I think they are going to be more like the 7th seed or close to that. They don't have enough of a physical presence inside, and aren't great defensively, but they have some players who can score, and they have a lot of good shooters. You can't easily double anybody. They could make noise in the playoffs because they can always steal a game or two with their shooting so they can beat any team in the league.
yea thats the thing for them every year they always have a top guy or 2 injured but IF they can stay healthy i can see the Raps and Wiz fighting for that 4 spot
1 cavs maybe
2 Celtic maybe
3 magics don't know
idont know how the order maybe like a year from now but this is my top 4
I think the Hawks could be a top 5 or 6 team. They were good last lear and Crawford gives them another offensive weapon. They'll be dangerous in the play-offs.
Yea I think the Wizards and the Hawks are the 4th and 5th best teams respectively in terms of talent, and I think thats the way it will play out (if the Hawks start out fast like last year).
I do think they will have the 4th best record in the East. I'm not so sure they are the 4th best team based on talent but I think this team will have pretty good chemistry, will consistently play hard, & really wants to win.
They could finish fourth maybe, but I think this team is going to be soft. Not built for the playoffs in my opinion.
i gotta say the hawks r still 4th
It is possible for them to finish 4th, but it'll be dependent on D.
Obviously they can score, but it'll depend on Calderon being able to keep faster people in front of him, and Bosh and Bargnani with interior defense.
4 or 5 seed could be higher if injuries hit Boston or Cleveland
Plenty of overrated team in the East the Hawks, Bulls, Heat, Pistons aren't as good as the Raptors.
Washington who knows they don't usually don't play much defense maybe that changes with a new coach.
