Predicting the Eastern Conference 2012-13 Final Standings

September 18th, 2012 by Michael Dunlap Leave a reply »
The NBA's Eastern Conference saw quite a bit of shifting with the departure of Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers and the aligning of the stars in Brooklyn. Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls are the reigning regular-season champions but with Rose's ACL injury, we're sure to see a new team at the top.

Taken as a whole, the Eastern Conference is relatively young. The true contenders are full of players in their prime or approaching their primes. Even the bottom-feeders are doing a good job of setting up for the future by stockpiling talent.

Who will the surprise teams be this year? Can the Washington Wizards or Toronto Raptors make the jump to get back into the playoffs? Did the acquisition of Andrew Bynum do enough to offset the losses by the Philadelphia 76ers?

This list is in reverse order, counting down who will have the best records from the No. 15 team in the Eastern Conference to the No. 1 seed.
