RK- Ranking

REC- Last seasons record

RK REC SUMMARY

1 Lakers 57-25 The defending champs kick off the season on top of the NBA. The addition of Blake and Barnes will improve the teams bench, giving the Lakers an even better chance of three-peating.

2 Celtics 50-32 A healthy KG, a 24-year-old Rondo, plus Allen, Pierce, and the offseason signings of both O'Neals place the reigning Eastern Conference champs one up on the Miami Heat.

3 Heat 47-35 Chemistry and injuries are Miami's two major concerns entering the upcoming season. If LeBron, Wade, and Bosh can put those worries to rest, expect the Heat to shoot up in the rankings.

4 Magic 59-23 Unlike the East's other two powerhouse teams (Miami and Boston), the Magic had a rather quiet offseason. Don't be surprised if their roster looks quite different by the February trade deadline.

5 Thunder 50-32 KD and Co. gave LA a major scare during the first round of the postseason and they will certainly look to do so again. The teams young core should uplift the Thunder to a 50+ win season.

BOSTON617

Agreed. Boston is the Eastern champs so they must be ahead....once Miami proves their worth they will sky-rocket to the top and stay there.

Miami at third lol! You don't have to have LA (for one) and BOS (for 2) ahead of them. Miami will immediately prove this wrong.
