The Atlantic Division is certainly going to have its share of teams crowded at the top of the standings. The Knicks have enough pure talent to make things interesting; the Sixers have one of the best centers in the game and are making changes for the better (for them at least); but the team that seems the most concerning is the one that was bought with many millions of rubles.
