Reviewing the Central Division

The 2010-11 season is right around the corner. No, it is like literally right around the corner. Training camps open in a few weeks and we can finally stop conjecturing and start making sense of this summer of upheaval. The new season will be much different than the old. So let’s start thinking 2011 and all the hope and promise that comes with it.

Jeff Clark of CelticsBlog.com has organized the NBA Blog Preview, consisting of all the best basketball blogs across the Internet, to help everyone get ready. The Magic will be coming up sooner rather than later and the season will be around the corner. I will be trying to keep up and give a Magic-centered look at each team being previewed.

The Central Division is going to be very interesting and very competitive. But also not full of any championship contenders. The Bulls want you to believe they are there. But with Carlos Boozer out for the early part of the season, they may not quite be ready. Milwaukee could be the sleeper pick, especially after the way they played in last year’s postseason. Brandon Jennings is still young and while the offense has been reloaded, that team’s success depends on how quickly Andrew Bogut can get back to full health.

On to the teams hoping and praying for a playoff berth. Indiana could be ready to make that leap. Danny Granger is a developing talent, Darren Collison gives the team some newfound production at the point. But Roy Hibbert is the real guy to watch.

Cleveland and Detroit have some good players but are still very far away from getting back to the postseason. Still, no team in the Central Division should be looked over.

Be sure to check out the Atlantic Division and Pacific Division previews too.

Boy do I feel behind. I will get to the Magic-centered previews for these teams. But the NBA Blog preview moves on without me. All this hoopla about the new arena has distracted us from the upcoming season. So here are the previews my colleagues on the Internet have written about their teams. You will hear more about them very soon. Be sure to check out the Atlantic Division and Pacific Division previews too.
