“Toronto took some losses, so it’s going to be one of those laughing stock divisions. But because of that, you can say ‘why not us?’ The Knicks will be a little better, but how much better can they realistically be? The Nets are going to be worse and Philadelphia is a mess. Toronto lost Amir Johnson. They made some swaps and got DeMarre Carroll, but I think it’s going to be Boston and Toronto.”
The Atlantic might be the worst division in the league, giving a team like Boston a decent opportunity to win it. But they still likely aren't better than the Raptors, who added Carroll and got much better defensively on the perimeter.
