    Default New NBA Divisions for 2004-05 Season

    Eastern Conference

    Atlantic Division: Boston Celtics, New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors

    Central Division: Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks

    Southeast Division: Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, Washington Wizards

    Western Conference

    Southwest Division: Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Hornets, San Antonio Spurs

    Northwest Division: Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, Seattle SuperSonics, Utah Jazz

    Pacific Division: Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings

    Under the new plan, teams will play divisional opponents four times each (two home games/two road games), conference opponents outside the division three or four times each and opponents outside the conference two times each (one home game/one road game). The three regular season divisional winners in each conference will earn a playoff berth and one of the conference’s top three playoff seeds based on regular season record. The remaining five playoff berths for each conference will be based on regular season records with no regard to divisional alignment. Home court advantage throughout the NBA playoffs will be based solely on regular season record, not playoff seeding, thus a divisional winner that has a higher playoff seed than an opponent will not necessarily have home court advantage in the playoff series.
    if the knicks win there division they will be in the top three in the playoffs and if u look at there divison they can win that one.

    Not for a few years. He won't do a whole lot for the first two years he is in the league, much like J. O'Neal or something.

    I agree that the Knicks are going to own their division. Should be no problem for us. After all the crazy moves the Nets have made this offseason I don't think they are going to be much of a challenge. I think our biggest challenge would be the Sixers and AI. As a team overall, of course all the other teams got some talent too but none that can match all the talent the Knicks currently have.

    I dont even think the Sixers and AI are gonna be a challenge. They haven't drastically changed their line up from last year, it's still the AI show pretty much. And remember the last two games the Knicks and Sixers played, I think AI shot a combined 3 for 21 or something like that. We owned them.

    you got it all wrong!!

    Atlantic Division: knicks and nets
    Central Division: Pistons and Pacers
    Southeast Division: Heat and magic

    Southwest Division: Spurs and Rockets or dalles
    Northwest Division:Wolves and Nuggets
    Pacific Division: Lakers and kings (suns might be a threat).

    thats the way it should be.

    Nets? Are you joking? RJ can't lead them, without Kidd they are done for a minimum of 3 years.

    Magic? Francis, Mobley, and Howard...I don't think so. No team goes from the #1 pick to a leader or second place in anything, except the lottery, again.

    Maybe you don't know who the Wizards have. Jamison, Hughes, Arenas, Hayes, Whitney, Peeler, Dixon, Kwame, Haywood, and Kwame. That's a lot better group than the Magic. Plus most of the team is still in tact, they are used to playing without Stack, so the players won't have a problem meshing with Jamison. The Magic on the other hand are without Lue, T-Mac, and Howard. They have a whole different group there now and will have almost zero chemistry.

    Kings? How. They lost their main player. Vlade ran everything. He set Bibby's and Peja's picks, he was the veteran leader on the court and in the locker room. Without them, there is no more perfect passing and flopping, which was 1/2 their game. They replaced him with useless Ostertag. Peja is going to be gone, Peeler, Massenburg, and Buford all leave. They are in shambles now.
