The Beast Coast, is looking as strong as it’s been in recent memory due in small part to the Atlantic Division which has 2 ‘title contenders’ but one of the worst teams on paper that I have witnessed in a long time. In what is often called a young man’s game, the division will be paced by two of it’s more elderly squads.
What We Know:
– The Celtics are rebuilding and Rajon Rondo wants zero parts of what is going on in The Bean, I give it a 75% chance that he’s traded before the trade deadline
-The Raptors are gonna sneak up on no one and be entertaining trash again with Rudy, Demar and Terrence Ross jumping outta the gym.
-Royce White still won’t board an airplane.
-The Nets are going to single-handedly bring disrespect back to an arena near you this season. It’s probably gonna start in a game across the Brooklyn Bridge at MSG.
-The Knicks fans will be loud as hell early in the season and once that knickstape pops they will settle down into their $1500 one bedroom apartments.
What We Think:
-Brad Stevens will be better than advertised, just not this year.
-The Raptors will sport the best team kicks this year, again.
-This is probably as good as the Sixers will look all season.
-Nets will finish first in the division.
-It’s getting cold so JR Smith will finally leave La Marina and head back downtown. This is all speculation.

Rookie to Watch:
All in all it’s gonna be a close race to be top dog in the Atlantic but somebody’s gotta lose. Think the Nets take this division (barring injuries). Injuries seem inevitable for the Nets old a** roster but I think they get to 51-31 and the Knicks finish slightly behind at 50-32. Possible 4/5 first round matchup. I was gonna say Landry was the most washed up player till I remembered his wife was a model n allat. Dray Blatche for 6th Man of the Year cuz he been creeping with Tahiry. 60/40 odds the Knicks and Nets get into a physical fight in the first game after David Stern steps down. If the Sixers win 20 games this year that will be nothing short of impressive. I bet y’all tune into Raptor games on the humble now!
