The NBA wraps up the season's first half in style with a great double header tonight on TNT. At 8pm Eastern, its the Thunder hosting the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City, followed by the battle of Los Angeles featuring the Clippers and Lakers. The "Grammy" break is over and both LA teams are road weary and ready for a return to the Staples Center. NBA fans won't be without the game as All-Star weekend in Houston tips off on Friday.
As we roll into the 2012-'13 NBA season, we're going to take you through an overview of each of the six divisions. Who are key newcomers? Who are notable for your fantasy team? Last season was brutal with a late and sudden December start to an abbreviated season. We continue our previews with the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Does Boston have another run left? How improved is Brooklyn with a healthy Brook Lopez and the addition of Joe Johnson? Are the Knicks ready for a run with the best front court in the Eastern Conference? And is Andrew Bynum durable enough to provide the post presence to support the perimeter rich Sixers? Toronto... in a case of the rich getting richer, one of first round picks that Oklahoma City received in the James Harden deal is going to be a Raptors lottery pick.
As we play out the final weeks of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference with the New York Knicks.
It seems like the season just got started, but we are already well into the second half. Yes, the playoffs are next month, a great opportunity to review each member of the Association. We begin with the Eastern Conference, specifically the Atlantic Division.
Another week, another rumor of Dwight Howard on the move. The latest coming from ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. Just last week, Superman indicated that he would accept a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers. Howard had previously given his blessing to relocating in New York or LA with the Lakers. The back and forth began prior to the season opener and has continued ever since.
