Smile When It's All Said and Done, I'm Proud to Be a Fan of the Atlantic Division.

I know some of you Raps, Nets and Knicks fans are worried, but I'm not. We can seriously hold our heads up now and mock other divisions like that ****ty SE division or the NW division.

Even if chemistry doesn't work out in places like NY and Boston, on paper their are 4 stacked or at least hefty teams in the Atlantic. Not many teams can say that. Plus Philly did play .500 ball with Iggy leading the charge.

You guys can bicker and cry if you choose to. I'm going to smile and enjoy the show.

i am not an Atlantic Divison fan or an Eastern Conference fan. I am solely a New Jersey Nets fan.

Boston strengthening is terrible news. as if the Toronto/NJ race wasn't already causing anxiety.

meh... winning in the playoffs is what counts. and even though the raptors have only added kapono and delfino, we'll be a better team next year too if only because our best 3 players are 24 or younger. and im REALLY looking forward to the numerous KG vs Bosh matchups... Chris always seems to play his best when going against the league's top PF talent, with the exception of sheed wallace.

What the ****? You're a fan of a division?

I'm an Orlando Magic fan.
I am not a SouthEast division fan.
I am not an Eastern conference fan.

I don't understand... seriously.

Did you wake up today and ask yourself "How can I be completely and utterly useless to this green and blue world I live on?"...?

While I solely root for one team (Cavs), you want the rest of your division/conference to do well (not at the expense of your team, of course). That way, if/when your team ever advances deep into the playoffs, people aren't saying that the only reason your team is doing well is b/c of the poor level of competition.

At the end of the day, it's not really about what the sportswriters think. It's about results. You take the most finely conditioned athletes in the world, and even when they are down and out, you still have to go out there, execute your game plan, make shots, and beat them. In the case of your teams vs. mine in the second round this past season, we still had to go out there and somehow come up with a game plan vs. a team who was h ellbent on stopping LeBron. We had to stop a future hall of fame PG, VC, and RJ. People don't give us any credit for beating the Nets. A bounce or two goes your way in that series and you guys end up taking the cake instead of us. It was a hard-fought battle and you guys might've beaten us if fully healthy.

Newsflash!

Caught on Tape: hippos makes a statement that puts the words "proud" and "Atlantic" in the same sentence. What's next you ask? A love afair with a Newfoundland girl's cod bucket.

I agree. While I solely rooting for the Celts, in an off handed way, I do like to see the other teams of our division play relatively well so that I can boast about the level of competition my team had to face to get deep into the playoffs. I certainly won't root for the Knicks, Raptors, Nets or Sixers, but I don't mind them doing well as long as the Celtics are doing better.
