    Celtics have the most talented team in the conference but are still trying to put it all together
    Sixers have the most high end talent in the conference 3 legitimate allstars but lack bench depth
    Bucks have 1 great player surrounded by shooting and a great coach
    Pacers dont have enough high end talent to be considered a serious threat
    Raptors have the best combination of star talent and depth
    All teams can win the East except the Pacers imo

    Raptors have had a league leading 14 different starting lineups this year. They've played 1 game this year with their entire squad. They still have the best record in the NBA. Kawhi and the Raptors are going to the Finals.

    Injuries are the biggest threat to the bucks, no Giannis no win. What Giannis is doing is what lebron was doing in the East in the years past

    The bucks are the only squad besides Golden State who has more chemistry out the roof. They have been playing together for the past 4-5 years same unit only adding Bledsoe.

    People are so quick to shit on the Celtics for the slow regular season start when it means nothing. Come playoff time you will see what a team is really made of. We saw that last year when the handicapped Celtics took down the 76ers-Bucks-and nearly Lebron.
    Come playoff time you will see a well oiled Celtics team and the Raptors are the only threat at that point in the east IMO.

    Bucks are the best team in the league. They do everything well and don't have a weakness.

    It’s gonna be Bucks vs Raptors NOT CELTICS for the ECF. Jeez the lack of recognition for Toronto is getting crazy.

    Bucks also rank #2 in 3pt made and #1 in net rating and pt differential. The Warriors are vulnerable because their defense slipped to like 15th. Teams need to be Top 10 for both sides.
