    Mmmmmm, Atlantic Salmon.

    One may describe this division as anaemic. Front and centre are the Knicks, the franchise everyone loves to....love cause they're shit.

    Maybe they could merge with the Nets.

    The most exciting thing to come out of this division are the Kyrie Irving Celtics. A dynamic scoring point guard, Irving was tired of picking up Lebrons dirty socks and wanted his time to shine. He certainly cannot and does not use the AFL (aka Buckley) reason of "leaving to play in premierships" as he already has achieved a ring. Early indications suggest problems with rebounding, perhaps alleviated with the addition of the very Irish Aron Baynes. Can Aussie Kyrie replace the heart and soul of the franchise in I.T? Opening night gunnabegud.

    IT. IS. TIME! Time for the Philly to rise again. With similarities to the GWS Giants (young talent) the Sixers and Aussie coach Brown are entering an exciting time. The PROCESS has been trusted, now it's time to let the peacock fly! Simmons (Aussie), Fultz, Okafor, Joel "slide into my DMs', Embiid, Saric, Satauskas, Reddick, Amir Johnson..... The biggest problem here is tryin to fit them all into the all star ballot!

    Oh yeah, Demar is still a Raptor.
