The NBA Division odds are up and today we’ll start with the Eastern Conference. Last season, these race wasn’t very close in the Atlantic as the Raptors ran away with it. That is not expected to be the case this year as it could be the most competitive division with the 76ers, Raptors and Celtics considered three of the best teams in the East. The Heat won the Southeast last year and they’ll be challenged again this year by the Wizards. While the Cavaliers almost certainly won’t be returning as the Central champions. These divisions look to be much more interesting than last season.
The Brooklyn Nets are the perfect example of just how hard the NBA is when you don’t have any superstars. They made a lot of bad decisions a couple of years ago, but have since tried to right the ship through rebuilding. Only problem? No assets and no draft picks. It’s pretty hard to rebuild when that is the case and that’s what we have here.
