No team has fallen as hard as the Indiana Pacers in recent memory. After appearing to two straight Eastern Conference Championships, the Pacers now appear to be heading for a low seed in this year’s playoffs. This Pacers team hasn’t been the same since Danny Granger left.
The offseason didn’t get any better for Larry Bird’s team. The infamous Paul George USA basketball camp injury does not to be seen, spoken about or thought of any more. They watched Lance Stephenson walk to Charlotte for a contract the Pacers should have matched or higher. This team is forced to rely on the current players on the roster to have career years.
Additions: Rodney Stuckey, CJ Miles, Chris Singleton
Subtractions: Rasual Butler, Andrew Bynum, Lance Stephenson, Evan Turner

One of the quietest teams in the league made a lot of noise last post season in an epic battle with the favored Houston Rockets. Thanks in large part to LaMarcus Aldridge’s monster series and Damian Lillard’s last second shot in game 6, the Blazers advanced to the second round. The bad news for the Blazers came with their second round opponent, the eventual champions, the San Antonio Spurs.Portland has been on the playoff brink for some time now. The franchise has had bad luck to injuries (Greg Oden and Brandon Roy) but seem to be putting together a nice core of young talented players over the past few seasons. Now with a third year all star point guard (Damian Lillard), a perennial power forward (LaMarcus Aldridge) and a bench that could be ranked with the leagues best, the Blazers are hoping to continue their improvements and hopes of more playoff success.

The most disappointing season belonged to the Brooklyn Nets last year. Poised to accomplish great things last season with the additions of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to join Deron Williams, Joe Johnston and Brook Lopez, they fell short of even making the Eastern Conference Finals.

The offseason has been uneventful for them. Paul Pierce left for greener (or redder, Washington Wizards) pastures, Deron Williams got into a war of words with Kobe Bryant and the billionaire owner is rumored to want out. Now the roster is left with a terrible cap situation and aging stars who are all on the decline. This team this year will go as far as Deron Williams and Joe Johnson can take them.
Let’s take a peak at the roster for the upcoming season.
Additions: Jarrett Jack, Bojan Bogdanovic, Lionel Hollins (Coach) Subtractions: Marcus Thornton, Shaun Livingston, Paul Pierce
