ATLANTIC DIVISION VIDEOS

 
Can a quartet of rebuilding projects contend with the defending Eastern Conference champions? Probably not.

Team Video
CELTICS: One more run
NETS: Contenders? Nyet
KNICKS: That's A'mare
76ERS: Mr. Fix-It arrives
RAPTORS: Life after Bosh

 

PACIFIC DIVISION VIDEOS

 
The Suns stayed close to the Lakers last season. Now there's an ocean of difference between L.A. and the rest of the Pacific.

Team Video
WARRIORS: Playing Smart ball
CLIPPERS: Talent is there
LAKERS: Poised to three-peat?
SUNS: Another surprise?
KINGS: Bigger and better

 

CENTRAL DIVISION VIDEOS

 
LeBron's no longer around to rule the division. Now the Bulls and Bucks should fight it out, but only if they're healthy.

Team Video
BULLS: Getting more pieces
CAVALIERS: Bye 'Bron
PISTONS: Detroit's decline
PACERS: Granger's lesson
BUCKS: Fear the deer?

 

NORTHWEST DIVISION VIDEOS

 
The young Thunder may be the team of the future, but are they ready to fend off the Nuggets, Jazz and Blazers?

Team Video
NUGGETS: All about 'Melo
T-WOLVES: What's the plan?
THUNDER: Future is now
BLAZERS: Health permitting
JAZZ: Can they contend?

 

SOUTHEAST DIVISION VIDEOS

 
The Magic have won three straight division titles. Of course, that was before LeBron and Bosh took their talents to South Beach.

Team Video
HAWKS: Holding steady
BOBCATS: Be like Mike
HEAT: South Beach party?
MAGIC: Calling Superman
WIZARDS: Build around Wall

 

SOUTHWEST DIVISION VIDEOS

 
With Yao Ming and Chris Paul back, there's no weak link in this division. There's also no clear favorite.

Team Video
MAVERICKS: Oldies but goodies
ROCKETS: How is Yao?
GRIZZLIES: Maturation process
HORNETS: Paul's team again
SPURS: Not quite done
Tagged: Celtics, Pelicans, Rockets, Lakers, Bucks, Magic, Thunder, Kevin Garnett, Yao Ming, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant
