Lets see if this sticks. With Boston doing what they did they move up a few notches in the power rankings. I still question them outside their ''New Big Three'' and looking at their roster I can't see them wining a title with such little depth. They do have some nice players with Rando and Scalabrine, Powe, Davis, Tony Allen, Perkins as roll player but they might need more guard help so I could see them anywhere to 6th or 3rd in the East. I think Cleveland will slip a little next season because they now carry high expectations and are no longer going to sneek up on teams with players named boobie. If the Pistons would have guarded the one man show with a double team maybe things would have been different. Anyways I see Detroit and Cleveland slipping some and the rise or Toronto and Orlando. Even maybe a Knicks sighting for the eight spot? Well here are my rankings. What are yours?
1.Chicago- Deepest team in the East.
2.Toronto- Nice young hard working team on the rise.
3.Detroit- Soild vets but loosing steam.
4.Orlando- The rise of Redick and the addition of Lewis
5.Cleveland- Have LBJ but nobody is a suprise now. (Boobies)
6.Boston- The green triangle will be tough but still lacks depth
7 NJ- Vets and all the loss of Mikkie Moore will hurt them.
8.New York- They will be fighting for eight
on the brink....Wiz,Bobcats,Bucks Miami.
