It will be much tighter now but not quite the powerhouse as the western conference has been.
Will the East be a great division now?
I think it might be a good division. But the west will still rule. We’ll see what goes down.
The Bucks made a lot of moves to build a deeper roster.
The Hawks got Joe Johnson back, they’re still a good team
Orlando is still a Finals caliber roster
Boston just got out of the Finals.
The Bulls only need one piece to compete in the playoffs.
The Heat landed Wade + Bosh (but no one else yet)
The rest of the East …
NY has Amare, they just need some players to compete.
Cleveland (will they have LeBron still?)
Charlotte made the playoffs, can they do it again?
who else? I still see perennial losers in Detroit, NJ, Washington, Philly, Toronto, even Indiana.
