    Default Atlantic Division

    The Atlantic Division sucks, we all know that, it is obvious. The Knicks and Nets may be able to turn it around eventually, but I'm not holding my breath. One thing I did notice though, there has been a grand total of 4 inter-division games between the Atlantic division teams. The rest of the divisions have played 10 to 12 games of inter-division games. I found this interesting, but I think it does say something about how the current records of the Atlantic division are not likely to resemble their end records at all. Eventually these bad teams will have to start playing each other, and one or two will rise above the rest resulting in an undeserved winning record.

    Looks like Charlotte and Boston's records are inflated with the worst records and worst SOS. New York is surprisingly high in the SOS rankings, which, along with Brooklyn, have injury issues. With the glut of teams around 0.500 (Atlanta, Washington, and Detroit) are starting to separate from those below 0.400 (Boston, Philly, Toronto).

    Yes, the Atlantic divisionis brutal. Gives teams in the East like Chicago, Cleveland, and Charlotte hope in making the playoffs. I imagine New York and Brooklyn will turn it around.
