Next on the list of the Atlantic Files Division Preview series is the Central Division. Home to the MVP and the team with the best regular season record in the Eastern Conference.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have lost a couple of guys from their 60-win roster, but they re-tooled and are looking to build off of one of their best seasons yet. The Indiana Pacers are the next best team in the division to challenge them, but it’s not all that close.
Detroit is now home to two of the biggest hopeful stories in the league. Joe Johnson and Derrick Rose are both looking to get their names back on the top of everyone’s mind as they team up with Blake Griffin.
Finally, the two rebuilding teams of the division are going to struggle to see who can tank the most and get the best pick of the draft. Cleveland and Chicago might not be home to the champs this year, but they will be home to promising young talent.
Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
