    So are the Hawks gonna run Millsap at the 3 or what? I'm not sure how I feel about that to be honest. I'm sure they will have another great regular season but I expect they will have a playoffs similar to last season, somewhat underwhelming. As for the 2nd seed, I also feel like a number of teams can snag that spot, Raps, Heat, Bulls, Hawks, but alot has to go right for either team to get there IMO. No doubt, these teams will be aiming for that spot, in order to avoid the Cavs until ECF. Should be a fun regular season watching these teams battle it out for seeding.

    Wouldn't use the word definitely. To me really any of Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, Washington, Miami, Milwaukee could flip-flop between the 2-7 spots.
    Milwaukee overhyped man they're in that tier with like boston charlotte detroit imo. They fucked their team up bad at the trade deadline. Still a very bright future with potential superstars but they aint sniffing home court in the here and now.

    Raptors are definitely NOT the second best team in the east right now

    Maybe, I just don't like PG that never pass and do highlight reel crap. A SG is okay since a good PG can limit that
    Well I do agree Kyrie would be a much better player if he shared the ball. He is basically a rich mans Lou Williams. Now, a rich mans Lou Williams will shoot you out of some games, but over the course of 82 he's a net positive because he will score 40 plus take over some games and win them all by himself, and he will also alleviate Lebron with some nice 25 point games.

    They REALLY missed Kyrie against GS. There was no second option, just a cheap imitation in JR Smith. Lebrons strategy was to basically try and win 88-86 and stall the game until the buzzer ran out. Obviously didn't work.

    With all the bad news today regarding EC point guards, things are starting to look like a healthy kyle lowry could play in his 2nd straight all star game
    Kyle Lowry is gonna start in de all star game and lead us to de promise land this year of the ECF. Yes, I said it!

    Kyrie has no positive effect on the Cavs whatsoever. He just eats clock and possessions.

    There's a better chance of seeing Chewbacca than a healthy Bulls team.
    Not to mention D. Rose might be in jail for rape. I really hope that's not the case. As much as I hate this version of the Bulls (I'm looking at you Hinrich and Noah) it'd be a real shame if D. Rose was convicted. He's done so much in Chicago to attempt to stop violence, this would discredit all he's done.

    On a less serious note, I'm so torn about the East this year. It's pretty exciting, from 2-6 there's really no bad choice for the way you think the standings will go. 7-10 will also be interesting. Obviously the East isn't as skilled as the West but one might be able to argue that its just as balanced. And I think at the end of the day, if you're going to stick to conferences the best you can hope for is balance like we have now.

    1. Cleveland
    2. Atlanta
    3. Raptors
    4. Chicago
    5. Wizards (Beal is looking for a max extension, would you give it to him?)
    6. Indiana (Could be higher, with George back and Ellis in the mix. Comes down to what they get out of their rookie Miles Turner though I think)
    7. Miami (I don't believe they can stay healthy)
    8. ?

    I think that the Hawks will finish second in the East...

    But I don't think that the Hawks are the second best team? I think that the Hawks system and depth will work great for an 82 game season but when the benches shorten in the playoffs, I think that the Bulls (or the Raps?) will be playing the Cavs in the ECF.

    Apparently, Kyrie Irving might not play until January because of the time he's going to take off to heal properly from his injury. Looks like the Cavs might not be the #1 team in the East this season.

    I can't believe so many people picked the Raptors to be number 2. I think some bias is creeping in lol. I picked the Bulls but to be honest I think apart from the Cavs, its a toss up on where the Hawks, Raps, Bulls, Wiz will fall into the 2 - 5 slots.
