NBA Eastern Conference Preview: Derrick Rose Is The Biggest Question Mark

  • Matt Rudnitsky

In Part One of his Super-NBA Preview, Pat Mayo (@ThePME) welcomes SB Nation’s James Herbert (@OutsidetheNBA) to dissect the Eastern Conference. Starting with the Atlantic, the guys talk about tanking for lottery balls, rookies, why Alan Anderson is the key to the Nets (not really, but he is on the roster!), the true elite teams in the conference (sorry Knickerbockers), Chicago’s upside with a healthy Derrick RoseRudy Gay’sawareness of his greatest enemy: Advanced Stats and stop in the central with the revelation the Bucks may actually be OK!

Plus, Mayo demands to know how much Knicks fans will detest Andrea Bargnani, why he still loves MarShon Brooks (aka “College Kobe”) and if Evan Turner is going to be an awesome Fantasy player on the awful 76ers. And as a public service, Herbert teaches Pat how to pronounce two names: Raptors GM Masai Ujiri & Bucks Greek first-rounder Giannis Antetokounmpo

Part Two… Wednesday.
