I do think Rip will be a good addition for the Bulls tho, because he's going to be that consistent secondary scorer they desperately needed from the 3 spot. And with Rose setting him up its perfect.
The Bulls are going to be improved and a much tougher out this year.
I think the Celtics take another step back. That perkins trade ruined them.
I think the Knicks will be much better. Not quite sure why they gave up on Billups like that, but Tyson Chandler was a huge addition for them.
The Pacers and Sixers are young up and comers, but lack the superstars and wont be able to beat the top tier teams.
The Hawks are still the Hawks.
The Magic...I dont know what to make of them.
Its coming down to the Heat, Bulls and Knicks in the East. I think its going to be tougher for Miami this year, than it was last year in the East.
I'm going Heat vs. Bulls in teh conference finals, but the Knicks taking whichever team they play to 7 games in the semi's.
As for my Cavaliers....I loved what I saw from Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and Omri Casspi so far. They'll struggle, but at times show flashes of the future, but we need a high pick so we can snatch Harrison Barnes or Kidd Gilchrist,
