I wouldn’t say they are underrated because most in the prediction thread have them making the finals but Philly have added a lot of defense. Melton, Tucker and Reed developing nicely

"Harden" up people and make some predictions in the prediction thread.

Simmons shooting form still questionable then?
Hearing him melt continuously about there being airball videos of him etc.. like dude either get off of social media or work on your game. Been in the league now for 6 years and still hasn’t developed a jump shot but on a max deal.

I think the Celts will go okay just quietly without Ime Udoka (whom is now rumoured to take over at Brooklyn once Nash is inevitably fired)

Still confident we can come out of the East again, Milwaukee being our main threat, no other East contender has sufficiently improved in the off season (Miami did nothing which I found baffling) and we all know Philly and the Nets will implode again.

Cleveland a year or two away from being a serious threat/scary.

Wouldn't be certain on Philly, they have absolutely built that roster around it's big 3. I think thy are my tip to win the whole thing.

Maybe. Harden and Doc's record in playoff meltdowns is still something I cannot overlook at this point. But if JoJo stays healthy (a big if) and repeats his almost MVP winning season last season, you may be proven right..

Definitely some question marks that are totally fair but the East seems to have a lot of teams like that

Celtics - coach drama, time lord being fit

Bucks - safest bet probably

Heat - really lacking depth but they always find a few

Nets - Doni need to say anything?

Cavs - inexperienced but stacked

The East is going to be insanely fun
