NBA Eden of the east

Part 2 of Favorites to come out of the East

Miami Heat: If there was a team that I would say the title is theirs to lose this would be it. Miami has a dynamic team and the chemistry seams to be there this year. Additions like Shane Battier and Norris Cole helps the second unit when Dwade and Lebron need rest. They also acquired Eddy Curry a.k.a The Hamburglar He has trimmed down slightly but I want to see if he can produce when they need him.

New York Knicks: The Knicks have a problem although they should be a better team this year they still have no defensive presence. I chalk this up as bad coaching from Mike D’antoni, he is a offensive minded coach in a city that likes defense.  I think the Knicks need a coaching change to become a true contender but having Carmelo on your team is enough to get you there. Additions of Baron Davis, Mike Bibby, and Tyson Chandler are huge boost to the front line so I wont count them out but they have a long road ahead.

Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose is the leader of this team and they will go as far as he takes them. He just received a huge raise and coming off a MVP season. I want to see how this team responds to becoming a target. No more underdog approach. Carlos Boozer didn’t get off to a great start with his new team but I expect him to have a strong showing this year now that chemistry wont be an issue. Addition of Richard Hamilton will allow them to get better shots in the half court offense. I believe the Bulls will be contenders this year.

Boston Celtics: One final ride for Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. It comes a time when you look at players that are aging and say there done! Kevin Garnett is coming up on that mark. Ray Allen is a shooter and he will always do that well. Paul Pierce have a couple of good years left in him. I don’t know if these guys can make it to compete this year but I love the competitive fire they play with. They will still be a tough road block for a contender.
