Bloggers from NBA.com’s Hangtime ranked the top teams in the Eastern Conference, and no one is ready to dethrone the Heat just yet.
Most bloggers have the 1-2 staying the same, with Heat-Pacers. Some have Nets-Bulls or Bulls-Nets 3-4.
There is a clear difference of opinion of who fills that 2-3-4 slots in the East, as is with most reporters/bloggers.
The thing people point to with Brooklyn is the lack of head coaching experience and injury history.
It’s clear that the Nets won’t earn any respect until they prove it. Good.
