With the season coming up rather shortly I bring to you a series of "Division Winner" questions...WHO HAS THE BEST STARTING FIVE AND WHO HAS THE BEST BENCH??? WHO WILL WIN THE CENTRAL DIVISION AND HOW WILL THE OTHERS PLACE BEHIND THEM???
definitly the pacers. with the whole crew back and a healthy jamaal tinsley, they are definitly title contenders. jackson can slide over to the 2 creating mismatches in the position. artest can practically guard anybody in the nba, jermaine o'neal's athleticism and offensive game are off the charts, and jeff fosters heart and rebounding are unmatched too. jamaal tinsley fits into this because he keeps them running smooth, he's like the general of the team
Detroit or Indiana. The Pistons might not have Coach Brown, but they have the next best thing. The Pacers have a pretty good team this year too. Will Ron Artest make an impact this year? Will he be effective?
