The 76ers led by talented young point guard Jrue Holiday, are prepared to for a breakout season. Philadelphia is the most talented team in their division.

If the Philadelphia 76ers are able to stay healthy they will be, a legitimate title contender.
Brooklyn is ready to capitalize on their debut season, with the lethal combination of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. The nine newly acquired players this offseason, create the necessary depth required to contend. The Nets are continuing to build through the draft and offseason. The pieces are in place but the Brooklyn Nets are still, one year away from being a title contender.
The New York Knicks decided to end their promising season abruptly, by acquiring Carmelo Anthony in a blockbuster trade. The Knicks have struggled to make an impact in the playoffs since the trade. A depleted New York roster has to compete, in the highly competitive eastern conference. Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire won’t participate in a deep playoff run until; more talent surrounds them.
Boston in currently in the midst of rebuilding mode. Trading Ray Allen was the initial step of the insensitive process. Kevin Garnet and Paul Pierce are capable of carrying, the Celtics to a potential playoff berth. Boston fans will have to savior their last competitive season.
Toronto made headlines by pursing Canadian born point guard Steve Nash. The Raptors are a struggling franchise that has had trouble drafting, and attracting free agents. DeMar Derozan developing into a super star is, Raptor fans only hope. The Toronto Raptors will continue to remain in last place, until they put talent on the court.
