-I think Miami is a no brainer for the #1 spot.
-Pacers were very solid last year and had a good playoff showing, can't see another team being better than them (regular season) other than Miami.
-Brooklyn's record depends on their health, but they added Joe Johnson and should finish ahead of Boston because of the age factor.
-I think Boston is probably the 2nd best team in the East but their age and injuries will play a factor in their regular season record.
-Knicks have Two superstars, and added veteran depth. With Linsanity over, its time for the two superstars to step it up.
-Philly lost their best player but have great depth behind him, and added the 2nd best Center in the league.
-Chicago will struggle early, but when/if Rose comes back, they'll be able to sneak into the playoffs. Record depends on how quickly Rose returns to game action/100%.
-Atlanta is still a pretty talented team, but they'll be in a battle for the last spot.
