here is a post from another thread. How is the east any better than last season, please explain.
I keep reading that many of the eastern conference teams have improved themselves.
Not sure if you mean through trades/free agents or just through younger players geting better.
Besides the Heat who were going to be a 50-53 win team anyway, name for me one team that has improved themselves.
Let me go down the list:
Pistons: They are the same team as they were during the playoffs. They don't need to improve themselves. Same
Nets: Taken a major step backwards. Worse
Cavs: Losing Boozer really hurts. They might win a few more games than they did last seaon, but they are not going to be as good as they would have if they kept Boozer or at least got something for him. Worse
Bucks: they might improve slightly due to younger players getting better, but what moves have they made that improves them. Same
Sixers: Better coach, if they are healthy, they will be better. But I don't see them as contenders though. Better
Wizards: they have talent last season, but horrible chemistry. They should be better, but then they should have been better last season. Better
Magic: They have made the most changes, and will win more than 21 games. But the Pacers should still be able to go 3-1 against them. Better
Raptors: Different coach. I don't see them getting better. Same
Bulls: Who knows they should be better. Better
Hornets changed to Bobcats. Much worse
Hawks: 28 wins they might win 35 games at most. Slightly better.
Knicks: I see this team as being a mess. Houston is still having knee problems. They have some talent. Same
Celts: different coach who IMO is not any better than there former coach, O'Brien Same
have I missed any teams.
here is the bottom line, although I doubt anyone is still reading, raise your hand if you are.
Nets much, worse, Hornets gone, Heat better. Everything else is just noise.
Am I missing soemthing.
The west has gotten better. Lakers have not, Spurs, T-Wolves, Mavs and Kings are the sme.
But with Hornets now in the west, Suns, Jazz, and Nuggets all improved.
West is better, east is not except for the heat
