Number 4: BRK Nets
We’re going to assume that Durant misses almost all, if not, ALL of the regular season. So, Kyrie will have another big load to carry in Brooklyn. His leadership has been called into serious question after his stint in Boston, but I believe we’ll see a switch be flipped for the time being. If he’s happy in Brooklyn, they’ll be a dangerous team. If not, the Nets would’ve been better off keeping Dlo. I’m going to give Kyrie the benefit of the doubt here just one last time.

Number 5: TOR Raptors
The Raptors will still be one of the better teams in the east next season. They’ve added more defense with Stanley Johnson and RHJ after losing Kawhi. VanVleet, Siakam, and OG are expected to pick up their production even more on the offensive end, Serge and Gasol will continue to protect the paint, and Lowry will continue to run the same well-oiled machine conducted by Nick Nurse. Toronto is not the same team as last year, but to have them any lower than a 5-6 seed in the east would be foolish.

These are the 4 guys that should have their jerseys retired by the Raptors’ at some point in time:
-
Vince Carter was the first guy to put Toronto on the map and to lead them to an above .500 season with multiple playoff appearances. 27PPG in his prime is no joke.
-
DeMar DeRozan was a 4x all-star and Toronto’s best player since Vince Carter. DeMar was the driving force in Toronto’s first ever conference Finals appearance in 2016.
-
Kyle Lowry: the heart and soul of the Raptors’ organization. The engine that drives the offense and the pitbull that pushes everyone on D. Lowry is a 5x all-star and was there throughout the roster overhaul, and eventually was able to see things through to their first championship.
-
Kawhi Leonard: the missing piece. The silent killer. He put Toronto over the edge by covering all of DeMar’s deficiencies (3p shooting, defense, and clutch performing). Toronto’s unquestioned best player ever, even if it was only for 1 season.

Number 6: IND Pacers
The Pacers have been underrated for years now, and nothing changes this year. They have an extremely balanced squad that will be put to use by Nate McMillan. The Pacers’ only problem this year is Victor Oladipo. You can’t rush him to return from a quad tendon tear. If reports say he could be back by December-January, this likely means he wont be back until closer to February. This is the only reason I have the Pacers’ squad so low. This team will cause havoc in the 1st round when Oladipo returns though.

Number 7: MIA Heat
The Heat lost some depth in their pursuit of Jimmy Butler. However, landing Leonard in free agency, snagging Herro in the draft, and getting Waiters back from injury definitely helps offset what was lost. The Miami heat will definitely be in the Playoffs this year, and despite only being a 7 seed, will be on par with teams like Toronto, Brooklyn, and Indiana in my opinion

Number 8: ORL Magic
This is the same Orlando team that won 42 games last year, but has now added tremendous defense off the bench with Aminu and Mo Bamba (injured most of last year). We should also expect to see a gradual jump in Aaron Gordon’s production yet again. I believe Orlando will sneak into the 8 seed next season.

Fultz is a total wildcard. Could be a great 6th man, or could be a total no-show for 3 years in a row.

Number 9: DET Pistons
The Pistons have lost a little depth over the summer, but replaced that with Derrick Rose, who will no doubt win them a few games on his own. My concern with Detroit is that so much of the team’s offense has to be orchestrated by Blake Griffin. To his credit, he has completely changed his game to accommodate his injury history, but I can’t see Detroit playing 82 games without Blake and Rose going through injury struggles due to their heavy offensive load. Detroit needs to add some more versatile scoring options on the wings to better prepare themselves for a long season. I have them just barely missing the playoffs this year with 43 wins.

Number 10: ATL Hawks
Atlanta has rebuilt perfectly and set themselves up with a young core of Trae, Heurter, Collins, Reddish, and Hunter. Adding serviceable role players like Parker, Len, Crabbe, and Turner will make them competitive in a lot of games right now. Not a playoff team yet, but Trae Young and John Collins are going to give a lot of teams headaches. Lots to look forward to from this young team
-
Yes Vince is back for ANOTHER year! I’m sure he’ll get minutes here and there, but I expect him to be there for leadership purposes, almost as an assistant coach or player development guy.

The fear of the unknown is likely what turned teams away from taking Bol in the first round... especially when his team would not disclose his medical history. However, being drafted in the middle of the 2nd round makes Bol a very low risk, high reward case, as teams aren’t expecting their 2nd round pick to blossom into a star anyhow. This makes Bol a steal for a 44th pick. If he becomes even a serviceable starter, nevermind a star, he’ll be the steal of the draft. And if it turns out he can’t escape the injury bug, then oh well. He was only a 2nd round pick after all.

On paper, the Bulls definitely aren’t one of the stronger teams in the east. However, I could definitely see them shocking everyone and winning 42+ games and making the playoffs as their ceiling.

There’s no way for us to know what KD will look like on the court when he returns from his achilles injury. But history says that he’ll return at 75-80% of what he was at best.
-
There will always be a case for KD as the best scorer ever, or Top 3 at the very least. Here’s a look at what he’s been able to do scoring the ball:
• averaged 25ppg every season after his rookie year
• averaged over 28ppg in 5 different seasons
• 7 seasons shooting above 50% from the field
• 7 seasons shooting above 38% from 3
• 6 seasons shooting above 88% from the charity stripe
• 4x scoring champion
• 50/40/90 club

The Knicks are still a bad team after another laughable offseason that we were “sure” would result in the landing of KD and Kyrie.

No... per 36 is not an exact science. Its nothing more than a calculated estimation. However, Beasley was able to give the Lakers 7 points per game on about 50% shooting last season in just 10 minutes of action, despite only seeing floor time in 26 games. Extremely efficient scoring.

Here we begin my predictions for how I think each team in the Eastern Conference will stack up next season. Note this is not a power ranking, but rather me trying to guess the seed and record of each team for next season. This simply means there are certain teams that should be higher (on paper), but i believe will either have chemistry or injury issues.

In at no. 15 in the East I have Charlotte.... shouldn’t be much to say here. If Rozier is your team’s best player, then you’ve got a real problem with your squad

So many people, myself included, were left dumbfounded after last night’s trivia on my story (check it out) that revealed Russell Westbrook’s most inefficient shooting distance as he only shoots 22% when he’s a mere 3-10 feet away from the hoop. Strange🤯

Does this come as a surprise to you?

In a recent interview with Alex Kennedy, D’Angelo Russell talks about:
• How he will fit in with Gstate
• How him, Steph and Klay will mesh
• His own untapped potential and how good he will ultimately become
-
Steph and Dlo are going to be a hugely underrated duo next season, and when Klay gets back to full health, the Warriors will be legitimate title contenders, regardless of their seeding

A healthy trio of Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, and Wendell Carter Jr could stir up some trouble in the Eastern Conference next season. Now throw in some support players like Otto Porter, Thad Young, Kris Dunn, Satoransky and even Coby White, and you’ve got an underrated squad that can, and will, pop up out of nowhere next season

Rounding off my Top 10 Combo Guards, I have none other than Allen Iverson. A.I played with all heart and effort at all times. During his tenure with Philly, he was completely alone and undersized on offense. He wasn’t strong, or a crazy jumper, but instead was a masterfully skilled offensive player with the ball. The 2001 76ers are, without a doubt, the worst offensive team to ever make the NBA finals, as they were completely carried by their MVP

Iverson 2001 Playoffs:
46 MPG
32.1 PPG
6.8 APG
4.5 RPG
2.5 SPG
39 FG%
36 3P%
79 FT%

For me, Allen Iverson is still better than James Harden due to him being able to carry that relatively poor 76ers team to the finals

What would you change about my list?

Answers to FAQs
1. Dwade played PG in his rookie year. Was no where near the HOF SG he would blossom into for his career, so i left him off
2. Jordan played a 9-game stretch at PG. never a full season. Pure SG. Does not qualify.
3. Kevin Johnson/John Starks are surprisingly not combo guards. Played their whole careers at 1 position.
4.  Giannis played PG/SG long before he developed into the most physically dominant player in the league. So i left him out
