Presenting the Teams of The Weak...
1. Orlando Magic – The Dwight Howard Era has come to a close in Orlando. They gave up another dominant center to the Lakers just like what they did to Shaquille O’neal. They traded Dwight for Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington and Christian Eyenga. With Coach Stan Van Gundy out too, we expect that this team who were dominant during the recent years will fall down the standings and would rebuild during the years to come.
2. Toronto Raptors – The Raptors may have added Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry, but they still lack some stars to pull them up on their slump. Their roster doesn’t have the depth and skill to contend with the other teams on the East, maybe except for the Bobcats. No offense to the Raptors, but they should do more than that if they want to win more games.
3. Charlotte Bobcats – Surprise! Surprise! The Bobcats make it on our Top 3! But for the wrong reason. They acquired a scorer in Ben Gordon and drafted rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist from Kentucky who has lots of potential within him. But that won’t be just enough for the Bobcats to climb up the ladders in the East, especially when they matchup against the improved teams in the West. Let’s just hope that Michael Jordan and his Bobcats find a way to turn up their misfortunes soon.
