2012-2013 NBA Division Preview: Southeast Division

When you look at the Southeast Division, you see a lot of teams in rebuilding mode. With Joe Johnson’s departure to Brooklyn, our very own Dwight Howard finally saying goodbye to Orlando, and the punchline of the league, the Charlotte Bobcats, trying to get things on the right track, this is a division that is clearly the Miami Heat’s to lose.

In fact, this might very well end up being the worst division in the NBA. Orlando has always been the team that challenges the Heat year in and year out. But now that they are virtually starting from square one, along with the Bobcats, don’t be surprised if the Heat wrap up a playoff spot at an absurd time of the season.

We always expect Atlanta to make waves because of their athleticism and outside shooting. The loss of Joe Johnson this off-season will definitely hurt, but new GM Danny Ferry and the Hawks have quietly made some impressive moves that will make fans forget about Johnson and his contract.

The team to look out for in this division is the Washington Wizards. No, really. With their point guard of the future, John Wall, leading the way, the Wizards have constructed a good-looking roster that will add buzz to a city already excited about their sports teams. Expect to see the Wizards at the end of the season fighting for the eight seed.

Division Standings Predictions:

1. Miami Heat (59-23)
2. Atlanta Hawks (47-35)
3. Washington Wizards (40-42)
4. Orlando Magic (34-48)
5. Charlotte Bobcats (16-66)
